Bathroom with Blue Feature Metro Tiles

Our customer came to us wanting to update his bathroom with a transitional design with hints of both country house traditional and contemporary. Having a sloping ceiling in your bathroom is relatively common in older houses, however can be tricky when wanting a shower with a comfortable height. To do this we ensured the shower could be placed in the full height part by moving the bath along and having alcoves for storage behind.

Triple Valve 2 Outlet, 8″ Shower Head, and Handset Holder.

Walls: Blue and White Metro tiles with contrasting dark grout.


Design features:

When using metro tiles in a brick bond it gives that beautiful classic look and when using contrasting grout this makes the pattern even more of a statement. When transitioning between the blue and the white, they have been interlocked to give a neat finish and avoid having cut tiles in the centre of a wall.

When going with bold walls, it tends to be preferred to have a neutral tiles on the floor in order to not over complicate the space as a whole. The choice of larger scale floor tiles, keeps it simple and still compliments the wall tiles beautifully.

Alcoves are a beautiful way to add a feature as well as incorporating storage. In this project, having them behind the shower bath meant the shower could be the correct height and allowed for ample storage which doesn’t eat into the space.

Traditional style sanitary ware, is a lovely nod to the country house feel and when you pair them with the more modern lighting and floor tiles, the overall feel of the space has the perfect balance.
