Using textured tiling in a bathroom renovation
One of the most impressive parts of many homes are now the main bathrooms. Home renovators are becoming more bold and creative with their tile choices in recent years. While bathtubs, tapware, and washbasins were the main focus of every bathroom, interior designers are using bespoke tiles with handmade finishes, vibrant textures and bold colour combinations to make the ultimate statement for 2022.
It’s all about creating a story about the homeowner.
What is the best way to get new tiling done?
To save money some property owners will choose to just tile over what they have already. Although this isn’t a good idea as the underlying conditions of the tiles or walls might create problems later. Nu-Trend typically will focus on the renovation projects where the owner wants to do a complete renovation. We know this is the best way to produce a high quality finish & a new room that will last a long time as well.
Texture for feature walls
Architecture trends have seen an increase in using textured tiles for the bathroom to create a tactile experience with visual contrast. The variety of textured bathroom wall tiles are available in numerous colours, and no matter what you choose, it will add that sculptural effect to wow visitors and be the envy of your neighbours.

INNOVATIONS IN TILE DESIGNS
Japanese and Scandinavian design is blooming onto the interior scene, with hybrid styles, like Japandi (aka Japanese and Scandi) meaning ‘minimalism’, taking flight. You may not think that Japan and Scandinavia have a lot in common, but when it comes to design elements, they’re more similar than you may think. Japandi, blends Scandinavian and Japanese design principles, aesthetics, materiality, and craftsmanship. Each one’s aesthetics focus on simplicity, natural elements, and comfort. It’s no wonder as the calm and quietude of these interiors are mesmerizing
With timber textures and the use of black tiles, it allows homeowners to create a unique space that has the qualities of both the inside and the outside world. Black tiles also work when partnered with other materials such as dark wood. Despite offering a subtle difference, the different textures and tones can help bring a new dimension to the bathroom that would not be possible using other influences. Working with small bathrooms also helps instill confidence when looking to contend with more complicated spaces.
THREE DIMENSIONAL FREE FORM ART
Houseplants are perfect for bringing the outdoors in and the addition of a touch of greenery has been shown to boost your well being, purify the air, absorb bacteria as well as refreshing your home style. No doubt, the feeling of being amongst nature creates an instant oasis of calm that relaxes the mind. A perfect way to unwind after a hard day’s work.
Bathrooms are also the perfect space for indoor plants requiring a high humidity environment to thrive and grow into that jungle paradise we all desire. Placing them in your bathroom is incredibly convenient as you don’t even have to move the plants in the shower to water them.
Placing plants in your bathroom can also prevent and reduce dampness in your home. This is all to do with the structure of a plant’s leaves and how much moisture they can absorb. Fortunately, there are several plants which absorb the bulk of their moisture from the surrounding air through their leaves, leaving your bathroom dryer, and less damp-prone naturally. Plants with a good foliar uptake include Boston Ferns and Parlor Palms, both of which will help reduce high humidity in your bathroom and save your walls and furniture from damp.
EARTHY RUSTIC VIBES
An alternative to using tiles to recreate that earthy rustic texture in your bathroom design is by introducing natural elements like stone. Stone beautifully pairs with wood for that warm homely feel. The rough elements transform your bathroom to ancient countries like Morocco or Rome. More importantly, stone is highly durable, withstanding the wet. Here are various ways to bring stone into the bathroom.
When considering natural elements in your wet room, use it as a stone wall for that wholesome statement, or for that subtle look, a stone sink or bathtub is another way to bring humble tranquility into your bathroom. 2022 will see a refined contemporary bathroom with stone features adding a warm organic touch.
