The local bath it has now become an area of the house with attention to every detail; every detail, how to understand where and how to arrange the bathroom tiles coating, becomes a project theme to be researched and explored.
Over 70s and 80s it was fashionable tiling the bathrooms are a flooring that a wallleaving little room for the imagination; Today day, thanks to the wide range of options and possibilities that the market offers, they can be pursued interesting solutions and original for bathroom coverings.
Now let’s see together some solutions in comparison to investigate how and where to locate the parts in the bath to be tiled.
Bathroom cladding: place tiles only where needed
An interesting solution of bathroom cladding can be structured, with the exception of the shower, starting from the most delicate areas of the bathroom which need to be covered with tiles for practicality and for greater durability over time: the zone adjacent to sink as well as the surface behind a bidet e wc.
In this case you can opt for vertical stripes of equal width to that of the bidet and toilet, so as to protect the wall from any splashes of water. The pattern obtained will create vertical lines that they emphasize the part dedicated to sanitary facilities, giving value to the bathroom wall.
It is always advisable to paint with water enamel the remainder of wall.
Place the tiles in the bathroom for a boiserie effect
Very interesting in the context of bathroom cladding is laying up to a height of 100/120 cm from the ground. In this way the tiles will draw a sort of pattern on the wall woodwork in stonewarewhich, depending on the chosen format, give different style and atmospheres.
There are two results obtainable based on the chosen format, namely:
- il large formatsuch as for example the 60×120 cm, arranged vertically, will reduce the necessary joints to a minimum, offering a continuous surface of greater extension and giving a modern and minimal style to the bathroom cladding;
- il small format, such as the 10×20 cm, with or without upper closing profile, will give a retro flavour; if the choice of the bathroom covering will focus on intense and decisive colours.
If the choice of bathroom cladding will focus on intense and decisive colours, such as the creation shown in the photo, which adopts the grenade bevel of Ceramica Vogue by Bardelli ceramicsthe contrasting white bathroom fixtures will certainly be highlighted.
How to space the tiles for an effect wall
The hexagonal tile in the bathroom it is a choice with character for those who want a bathroom covering that has something special to say.
The hexagonal shape of the tiles offers different laying solutions which allow the hexagon itself to be more or less decisively enhanced.
For example in this embodiment, the hexagonal tile surfaces of the bathroom cladding maintain a height of 120 cm; the termination of the cladding fully maintains the shape of the hexagon, which is highlighted on the horizontal line due to its characteristic geometric design.
In addition, the study Cc-arkwho followed the design and implementation of this intervention, wanted to enhance the shape of the hexagonal tile with a game of progressive dematerialization achieved through the installation of elements that from the lower part thin out towards the ceiling.
Lo same theme it is reproposed in the area adjacent to the bathroom, dedicated to space laundryin which the hexagonal tiles chase each other on the walls alternating with the shelves.
The tiling in the bathroom becomes a game of contrasts
In this solution for bathroom cladding, the tiles propose the theme of contrast, which can be read in different aspects, from color al Format.
In fact, large 60×120 cm elements alternate Marazzi of the collection Mystone Basalto for the bathroom cladding main, with decorative elements 29×44 cm also by Marazzi from the same collection, located in the shower area near the mixers.
These bathroom tiles are inspired by lava stone and are proposed in this project in two contrasting shades: Pumice and Lava.
Il bathroom claddingplayed on the alternation of these light and dark elements, establishes a direct line with the existing black floor pursuing an overall stylistic balance.
Nell’area showersince it is a bathroom on the attic floor, a full-height cladding is proposed so as to ensure the walls the right protection from any formation of condensation.
One more detail to pursue could be to accomplish the shower glass of the same height as the cladding so as to maintain visual continuity of the various elements.
Alternating tiles and resin in bathroom coverings
An interesting alternative for bathroom cladding to combine with tiles is given by a very versatile material and with different finishes: the resin.
The resin becomes a valid ally in the bathroom if you decide to use the tiles, for example only and exclusively in the bathroom shower.
In this bathroom, the shower area is designed as a real niche, the walls of which are entirely covered on three sides with gray tiles horizontal arrangement.
The remaining walls of the entire bathroom, on the other hand, were treated as continuous surfaces to be characterized with personalized decorations in resin, so as to ensure the impermeability of the surfaces.
Thanks to the resin, it is drawn on the wall a reason stylized on the theme of spray which resulted in contrasting white geometric linear signs on a light gray background, with a complex effect in faux marble.
