How to use tiles to create a focal point in your bathroom

Bathroom tiles serve as more than just a practical waterproofing solution, they’re also great for helping you to create a style and mood within your bathroom. Here at NPM Bathrooms, we can supply you with a range of tiles in a variety of different styles, shapes, colours, finishes and patterns. So whatever you desire for your bathroom, whether that’s a stylish contemporary wet room or your own personal spa resort, stylish bathroom tiles are a great way of putting a personal stamp on your bathroom design.

A great way to do just that is to create an eye-catching focal point in your bathroom using our exquisite selection of bathroom tiles, and you can do this in a variety of different ways. Here are just a few of our suggestions!

Backdrop for your basin

Bathroom tiles provide you with a beautiful backdrop for your wash basin – and they also provide you with the practical benefit of serving as a brilliant splash-back for your walls, effectively protecting them from water damage. Due to the small amount of space that your wash basin will take up in comparison to the larger features within the room, you can definitely afford to be bold with your choice of tiles, and (if you’d like) opt for slightly smaller, and more intricate designs.

Smaller patterns will add an extra layer of warmth, character and depth to your bathroom design. Plus, they can be fitted to suit any kind of bathroom, whether you’re partial to a more traditional or contemporary design.

Tile around your bathing area

Bathroom tiles are absolutely brilliant if you’re looking for a sleek and stylish way to highlight and accentuate your bath. They look fantastic running along the top wall above your tub, and can be purchased in a range of colours to jazz up your bathroom design with a bright, bold colour pallet. The same absolutely applies if you’re looking to add an extra layer of character to your bathroom’s shower feature, and it’s a great way of creating an area of interest within your bathroom.

Style around a mirror

Tiling around your bathroom mirror is a great way to bring more attention to it. By tiling under and around your bathroom mirror, you can create a real area of interest within your bathroom that will immediately draw the eye of anyone who enters it. If you’re looking to make a bold statement, why not opt for some rich, luxurious and dramatic tiles to really make your mirror pop? As an added bonus, bathroom tiles are fantastic at bouncing natural light, which makes them perfect for placing around your feature mirror.

Create a feature wall

By using bathroom tiles to create a feature wall in your bathroom, you can really make your bathroom your own. With a simple finish and a few subtle changes of colour, you can transform your wall into a canvas that reflects your style and individuality.

Even if you’re more of a minimalist, a tiled feature wall can serve as an effective anchor for the rest of your bathroom design. So, whether you use large bathroom tiles, small bathroom tiles or a mixture of the two, you can use them to showcase a bold design statement, or set the tone and mood for the entire room.

At NPM Bathrooms we’ve made sure to cater to a wide range of budgets and styles, so our expansive showroom is stocked with a huge selection of bathroom tiles for you to explore – including those from market leaders such as Dune Ceramica. You’ll find everything from soft pastel tones to bolder and more vibrant shades, as well as metallic effects and other intriguing textures. If you need any help or advice, our expert designers are always on hand to help you find the perfect tile to complement the overall style of your bathroom, or even give it an intriguing personal twist.
