Inspiring bathroom design using brick format tiles…


Once thought of as unsophisticated, largely due to its association with its commercial use in areas such as the London or Parisian underground, the humble brick tile has seen a huge resurgence in popularity over recent years!

Whilst the trend for larger format wall tiles remains fashionable, the compact sizes that brick wall tiles are offered in allows for greater scope in being creative in terms of tessellations and patterns.

The original brick tile, sometimes referred to as ‘Metro’, featured a characteristic bevelled edge. Usually glazed in a high gloss, and offered in a diverse selection of colourful finishes, the choice now includes matt, non-bevelled and rustic versions.

Often fitted in a brick format, there are many possible alternative tessellations. These include herringbone and either a horizontal or vertical straight pattern match too!

A contrasting grout is a great way to make the tiles ‘pop’. This effect can be accentuated, especially if the grout and tiles colour are polar opposites!

White on white…

Ever popular, a white brick tile with matching grout is a classic backdrop to luxurious Salisbury bathroom furniture in sapphire blue with and a co-ordinating freestanding bath.

Choose a feature tiled panel behind the bath which matches the floor tiles, to complete the opulent look!

White with feature grout!

Achieve a more contemporary feel with a non-bevelled brick tile and contrasting grout. Then further enhance the scheme with a faux parquet floor tile.

It’s the perfect colour combination to our Dorchester bathroom furniture, with feature oak veneer worksurfaces and towel rack.

softest cream…

Even though fabulous Lagoon Blue gloss is a warm shade of blue, in a bathroom or en-suite where there’s predominantly a lot of white items, choosing an off white or cream wall tile can stop the overall scheme feeling too clinical or cold.

Classic taupe…

Often overlooked, the cloakroom is the one room in your home that’s almost certain to be used by your visitors!

The feature wallpaper beautifully co-ordinates the space. Classic furniture in aqua and sophisticated tiling will create a luxurious feel to an otherwise compact space!

subtle Biscuit…

This classic finish is a fabulous complement to warm oak woodgrain, an ideal colour combination in a wet room en-suite or shower room.

And, thanks to their compact size, the wall tiles can be easily cut and fitted in recess shelving, whilst successfully still retaining the overall brick effect.

Rustic white…

Achieve a bathroom oozing with industrial influences by opting for on-trend oxidised brick wall tiles and striking white units.

Go green!

Any bathroom that is fully tiled can be in danger of feeling cold, especially one in the attic!

Choose a combination of warmer colours such as eye-catching Cappuccino woodgrain and soft teal. It’s a colour scheme for an interior that’s sure to feel bright all year round!

Dove grey…

A fusion of architectural influences, our Shaker furniture in Midnight looks fabulous when teamed with sophisticated grey wall tiles and complementary decorative floor tiles!

Hague blue…

For a striking bathroom with timeless allure choose Walnut! Intensely rich, this woodgrain deserves an equally stunning wall tile.

Jewel like Hague Blue, fitted in a herringbone pattern with a feature contrasting grout exudes opulence! In fact, it’s the perfect complement to charming Walnut!
