On the Surface: The Best Patterned Bathroom Tiles

Say hello to bold design with these decorative beauties

Patterned tiles are an effective way of updating a bathroom without having to completely renovate the whole room. A new tiled wall, floor, or even just a splashback, can invigorate your existing bath, basin and brassware, giving your bathroom a fresh, new look.

With so many different tile colours, patterns, shapes and styles to choose from, we’ve picked an edit of the best patterned tiles that have recently hit the market in the UK.

There are rustic Moroccan encaustic tiles and traditional Morris & Co patterns to Art Deco inspired geometric designs and eye-catching modern hexagonal pieces.

The scalloped fish scale trend has been swimming its way into modern interiors too.

Of course the classic metro tile is continuing to have its style moment (in cool new herringbone and basketweave formations), so it’s never been easier to give your bathroom a modern revamp with some stylish new bathroom tiles.

For scene-stealing style, patterned tiles will give you the biggest impact, but before you take the plunge be sure to view them as a large repeat pattern, rather than in isolation, as the look will change when they are clustered together.

Play around with how you put the tiles together too, as with some tiles, particularly those with a geometric pattern or shape, the overall pattern can change depending on how you lay them out and which edges you put next to each other.

Consider using tiles up to dado height, or completely cocoon a modern shower room with floor-to-ceiling tiling to create a a stylish and splash-proof wet room.

Whatever you decide, a wall or floor of new tiles will instantly amp up your bathroom with a splash of colour and pattern.
