How To Create A ‘Tylish Bathroom
The water-resistant and durable nature of tiles makes them perfect for bathrooms but they are so much more than a functional aspect to a bathroom – they style a room.
Betta Living offers a complete design service when it comes to fitted bathrooms and that includes a wide choice of bathroom tiles. Betta Living’s head of design, Amanda Watson comments on her top five current ‘tylish’ looks.
“A feature tile can make a huge impact on a room’s look and feel - through its colour, texture or shape; and you can easily create a feature wall or floor even with a simple tile or on a small budget, it’s just knowing a few simple rules.
“Here are my top tips on the hottest looks right now and how to choose tiles best suited for your bathroom’s size and scheme.”
1. Textured “Wave-Effect” Tiles
Textured tiles are the hottest thing in bathrooms right now!
These wave effect tiles are calming, aesthetically pleasing and actually very practical to clean, in a gloss finish. The waves replicate the effect the sea has on sand as the tide goes out – simply gorgeous for bathrooms.
The texture is ideal for an all white bathroom to deliver depth and interest to the overall décor.

2. 3D Look Tiles
Take texture to the next level and bring an extra dimension to your bathroom walls with Betta Living’s 3D effect tiles. The light and shadow created by 3D effect tiling creates a modern and contemporary feature wall.
Say goodbye to boring bathrooms forever!

3. Larger Tiles For Smaller Spaces
The rule when it comes to small bathrooms is go large on the tile – this creates the illusion of space by requiring less cuts, creating fewer grout lines and a smoother flow to a bathroom.
Plus large tiles are so on trend that it’s now a timeless look that will last for years to come.
