The bathroom was once considered a utilitarian space – but nowadays people applaud turning the most humble room in the home into a private spa-worthy sanctuary. The benefits of creating a space to quite literally wash the day away, the design decision-making process is just as important as picking out the decor for the master bedroom.
They say the ‘devil is in the detail’ and that’s certainly why we at est hold bathroom tiles and stone in such high regard. From elevating the smallest powder-room to redecorating a monastic wet-room, the choice of bathroom surfaces can make (or break) the overall look, feel and functionality. Inspired by the contemporary palette of tonal and coloured tiles applied to the bathroom in the Villeneuve Residence by Atelier Barda, we’ve picked out some of our own favourite bathroom tiles and stone to deck out a space from the floor to the wall.
An exploration of shape and colour, the Rombini Triangle tiles in green by Mutina are surprisingly minimal, sleek and ultra contemporary. Available at Di Lorenzo.
Combining luxury with a classic appeal, we’ve got a thing for CDK’s Portsea Grey. It’s the perfect blend of greys with just the right amount depth to it. No wonder it’s favourite with designers.
