Using Patterns in the Bathroom

Posted on June 3, 2019

Most homeowners overlook the bathroom during the remodeling process, as they choose to focus on visible areas in the house for improvement. Just because the bathroom is private by nature does not mean you can’t make it an interior designer’s dream space. In fact, you can incorporate various styles in your bathroom without worrying whether the style matches the rest of the house. You can experiment with different designs, patterns, and layouts. Some of the most impressive bathrooms also showcase the most impressive patterns because it’s easy to incorporate patterns when tiles are used as materials for walls and flooring. If you’re undergoing bathroom remodeling and you would like to add some textured patterns in your private space, you may want to take note of the following tips:

Mosaic Tiles are Perfect for a Unique and Textured Finish

Mosaic tiles are versatile because they come in just about every size, shape, and color. However, most homeowners shy away from mosaic tiles because it’s a bit tricky to experiment with pattern. When working with mosaic tiles, the key to achieve a cohesive design is to choose two contrasting colors or varying shades of the same color. For example, black and white always works great together to achieve a monochromatic look for your bathroom but if you want something more colorful, you can choose one theme color and take various shades from that color and use them alongside each other. Mosaic tiles can also be used to form patterns. You can choose to use mosaic tiles as an accent piece, like a border on your sink or walls or cover one part with a mosaic tile pattern and the rest with something more neutral.

Floor Patterns

When undergoing bathroom remodeling, one of the easiest mistakes to commit is to match everything from the tiles used on your shower walls down to the tiles on the floor. You can actually use a different pattern on your floor and a different pattern for your walls. You can make the design look more cohesive by choosing a common factor; it can be the color scheme or the tile shapes or if you plan to use a lot of color on your walls, you can keep the floor neutral to avoid conflicting colors and patterns.

Think About What You Really Want

This is especially true for the master’s bedroom. Since you will be using it a lot and it is unlikely that you’ll let guests use it too, you have to make sure that the design you choose is something you really want. You can also ask for some advice from a bathroom remodeling expert and combine some elements of your personal taste to the design for a unique and personal twist.
