Tile Inspiration: Stone Bathroom Tiles
There's something a little bit magical about using stone tiles in your bathroom.
While white subway tiles might be the bathroom tile of choice for the majority, plain white can sometimes need a bit of a lift in order to inject life into a bathroom.
An Injection of life into your bathroom tiles can be done in several way, in fact it might just be by adding a splash of colour like neutral blue.
But paint aside, there are other way to bring your bathroom to life, like creating a stunning feature wall like this with stone bathroom tiles.
Stone is a wonderfully versatile material that never stays the same colour.
This natural variation creates colour pallets and contrasts even the best interior designer would struggle to compete with, while injecting a warmth and beauty you just can't find from ceramic of porcelain tiles.
But stone doesn't just bring a visual benefit to your bathroom tiles, like any good piece of art it stirs an emotional response from the user, adding a whole new dimension to your bathroom design.
In fact, unless you go for wooden tiles you would struggle to find a material which can add so much to your bathrooms reception.
Let's face it, the vast majority of bathroom we see or use don't evoke any emotional response at all, no matter how much the tiles cost; so why not be rewarded for all your effort and hard earned money by giving your visitors something to talk about?
That doesn't mean that all stone bathroom tiles are right for your bathroom, but the stacked stone look is definitely something to consider in your bathroom.
If you find a stone tile you love, then try to base the rest of the colours in your room around it, rather than simply using it to fit your bathroom.
Above all else, use it as stand out feature that isn't overpowered by the rest of the room.
If you're looking for a stunning feature for your bathroom but don't have room to create a stone tile feature, why not use your bathroom floor instead?
