Choosing bathroom coverings is not easy, we know that we have spent whole afternoons in the aisles of the dedicated department and the Leroy Merlin bathroom showroom in search of inspiration. Among the infinite possibilities, it is difficult to choose the one we like best, especially since it will have to last over time and not tire us easily. Once you have found the right one, it is time to choose the laying pattern. I have selected some examples to get ideas.
Comparison Of Laying Patterns
It was difficult to make the final choice but in the end, you managed to convince the whole family: green, small rectangular format 6.15×13, or 7.5×15 (like the Alfaro tile ). I don’t want to discourage you but that’s not all. The laying pattern is another decision that will definitely affect the final result. Compare the examples below and you will notice that a more regular installation makes the wall more static, if vertical it is more slender upwards; the herringbone pattern, on the other hand, gives movement and makes the wall dynamic.
From The Walls To The Floor: References That Create Continuity
A highly decorated tile like the Med tile that recalls traditional majolica can be laid in a casual way, alternating with plain colored tiles that lighten the design and make the whole more current. You can create a floor design by alternating some with wood-effect stoneware because it is suitable and resistant even to foot traffic. Find this information in the product features.
Laying With Hexagonal Tiles With A Spectacular Effect
On the wall where the bathroom furniture is mounted, an idea a little out of the usual schemes is to not complete the highest part in a regular way, towards the ceiling. In this way, there is no need to cut the individual elements but the geometry itself adds decoration to the decoration. Just like in this bathroom of a room where this scenographic effect was obtained with the Time Exagone tile.
Laying In A Herringbone Pattern Also On The Wall
Back in the last few years of great fashion in the world of parquet, the herringbone installation is today also very modern on the wall. To make it, choose a narrow and long rectangular format, like that of the Docklands tile. The result is a dynamic effect that breaks the stillness of the room. Also in this case the result is given by the type of tile chosen, the size and color of the joint. My advice is to use such a particular pattern only on one wall, even in two colors (as a background for the bathroom cabinet? Inside a large shower?) And combine a larger format laid straight and regular.
Installation With Tiles Of The Same Color But Of A Different Size
If you don’t particularly love color and prefer a neutral choice that doesn’t get tired over time, you can play with formats. Pair the 30×60 gray Bernay stone effect tile with the coordinated mosaic. It is preferable to combine formats of very different sizes to create contrast. You can choose a slightly staggered laying pattern and create a diagonal pattern on all the walls except for the washbasin area where the mosaic gives a sober and timeless decoration. Add a pop of color with free-standing towels and accessories, which you can easily renew whenever you want.
