Choosing tiles for a new bathroom installation or a remodel needs careful consideration. With so many materials, sizes, textures, colours and shapes to choose from, it should come as no surprise that some homeowners find deciding on tiles a little overwhelming. This is where PLR Design Ltd can step in to lend a hand. With a combined showroom and tile shop in Redhill, we know a thing or two about stylising bathrooms.
We supply direct to customers in the surrounding Reigate area, in Caterham, Dorking and Horley, and across all of Surrey.
Only a few years ago, homeowners chose bathroom tiles for their functionality. A water-resistant and maintenance-free finish, and durability in performance, mattered much more to most people than style. This is no longer the case because, as more of our customers than ever before begin to value aesthetics, so it is that they start thinking about design trends and what we can do for their bathrooms.
Trends are never a problem for us because we supply bathroom tiles in all of the following designs and materials:
Customers in Redhill, Reigate and the surrounding areas can opt for any of these tile trends when planning bathrooms:
Floor or wall, patterned tiles add an accent to bathrooms and customers have the choice of something subtle, something bold or something intricate. Patterned ceramic and porcelain tiles give homeowners a chance to spread their creative wings, but our bathroom planners are always here to help with the design.
We use the Virtual Worlds Pro Suite and 4D Studio to give our customers a virtual walkthrough of their finished bathrooms.
A matte finish lends a softer finish to bathrooms that won’t show dirt, marks or water staining like a gloss tile. This design is an especially good choice for bathroom floors, but homeowners should always consider what to do about lighting because matte tiles tend to have poor reflective qualities.
Gloss tiles still work well for those who prefer a more dramatic design and, of course, they add plenty of light.
For contemporary bathrooms in Redhill and Reigate, and for those across the region, tiles with neutral colours work particularly well. Overlook bright colours for white or go with what we refer to as “nude neutrals” with cream, beige or grey. For darker bathrooms, the lighter the tile, the better.
Bathrooms with a neutral light-coloured wall tile normally benefit from floor tiles in contrasting dark grey or black.
If you want to add depth, variation and interest to a design, think about textured tiles. Raked and 3D tile surfaces add a startling effect to bathrooms, turning room space into a talking point that’s closer to art than just a trend. If you want a one-of-a-kind bathroom, this is where to start.
Use textured wall and floor tiles for a touch of elegance and make your bathroom as distinctive as the rest of your home.
