Bathroom of the Week: Marble Designer Tiles

Seeing our projects come to life is an especially exciting experience! Creating a bold yet timeless look, our recent Richmond bathroom project uses stylish marble designer tiles that are complemented with warm honey timber tones and milky white wall tiles to create a stylish space in this elegant home. Geometric patterns are used in this Richmond bathroom for a timeless and bold look that is perfectly balanced with softer textures and design elements. 

A Luxurious Touch: Designer Tiles for the Bathroom

Our recent Richmond project uses Greg Natale’s Marmo II collection in the Ponti Grande Verde variety, creating a striking pattern that runs throughout the space and is strategically balanced out with a selection of glossy white wall tiles and a warm timber finish on the bathroom’s vanity unit. The finished look is a timeless yet energetic space that creates a strong and bold statement in this Richmond home.  

Designer tiles create a bold and unforgettable look in any space and can be especially effective when used in the bathroom. Usually featuring a range of luxurious materials, colours and even patterns, designer tiles will enhance your bathroom’s design scheme for a truly show-stopping look that offers endless possibilities in tile combinations for a design that is truly personal and unique.

 Greg Natale’s exquisite Marmo II collection features an astonishing range of natural marble varieties from Norwegian Rose to Emerald Green and Nero Marquina. The marbles are used to create an impressive range of geometric patterns and shapes making for a timeless and elegant experience in any interior.

Using Patterned Tiles in the Bathroom

Patterned tiles can be used in a range of ways in the bathroom, from creating an ornate feature flooring design, an eye catching feature wall or an all-over patterned look that creates a bold and energetic atmosphere in the bathroom, as demonstrated in this luxurious space. Patterns can be created using a variety of tile types and tiling methods; for example, many collections of tiles will feature a printed pattern on the surface (such as the ever popular Art Deco inspired geometric patterns) or be made up of contrasting materials to create a repetitive pattern (as demonstrated in the elegant Greg Natale Marmo collection where different varieties of marbles are combined to create a stunning contrasting effect). 

Other ways to achieve bold patterns in your tile selection is to carefully select from a range of tiling layouts. Herringbone tiles for example have proven to be exceptionally popular this year, thanks to their ability to tie in with a range of different interior design styles, from Hamptons inspired spaces to contemporary looks and even modern country style interiors.

Patterned bathroom tiles exude a bold, timeless and playful vibe in the home, instantly lifting any interior design scheme to create a truly magnificent and unforgettable look. Patterns allow you the ultimate freedom in your design palette, allowing you to create the perfect personalised look.

Marble Tile Maintenance Considerations

When using natural materials in the home, there are a few key maintenance factors to keep in mind in order to ensure the longevity and quality of the product, especially when used in the bathroom where liquid and powder spills are more common. Marble tiles are a naturally porous material meaning that the material can potentially be stained or discoloured when in contact with strongly coloured liquids and powders, acidic products (such as lemon juice for example) or harsh chemicals (such as harsh cleaning products and bleach). Properly sealing your marble tiles will help prevent staining from occurring, keeping your new natural stone tiles in tip-top shape. It is also crucial to ensure the use of proper cleaning products on marble tiles: Perini Tiles recommends the use of our Stain-Proof® Daily Floor Cleaner, a product that is perfectly suited to the sensitivity of a natural stone product while also providing a spectacular clean. You will find more information on the best cleaning techniques and products in out Tile Cleaning Guide.
