Although featuring one wall in the bathroom is a popular way to introduce color and pattern in your design style, the right flooring can be just as impactful. From luxurious marble tiles to natural stone flooring, a professional flooring installer can help you add a glamorous touch to your design scheme.
Consider these flooring trends to create a dynamic look in your new and improved bathroom.
Marble Bathroom Flooring
Marble tiles continue to be a popular choice in the bathroom, providing endless appeal in a vast range of naturally occurring colour combinations. From the traditional soft white marble varieties of Carrara and Calacatta marbles to bolder black options such as Nero Marquina and more, you will find that authentic marble bathroom floor tiles are available in an impressive range of options.
Aside from these traditional black and white marble varieties, there are many other luxurious colours available to choose from including soft blush tones, elegant mint greens and more traditional cream colours.
It is important to keep in mind that real marble floor tiles are porous in nature and as such, will require ongoing sealing in order to best maintain them over time and assist in the prevention of staining or discoloration.

Combine a Feature Wall & Feature Floor
If you are looking to create a high impact design scheme in your new bathroom, why not run your floor tiles straight up the wall to create a stunning feature! Many natural stone tile options, porcelain tiles as well as concrete or glass tiles can often be used as both a floor and wall tile solution, allowing you to create a stunning look in your design scheme.
Porcelain tiles are an especially popular choice in this type of design as their incredible durability allows them to be incorporated in any application. These tiles are baked at extremely high temperatures, resulting in a material that is resistant to staining, scratching, heat and moisture, making them a popular solution for the bathroom, especially in applications where they are used as a flooring option and as a wall tile solution within a wet room or shower area.

From warm travertine tile options to elegant creamy marble tones, you can expect to see more tans, taupes, beige and cream tones popping up in the world of interior design in the new year!
