Bathroom wall tile trends of 2023 are shifting towards simple, timeless neutral tones as well as bold, murals and patterns or subdued shades of blue for those wanting to include more colour in their home. Although each of these styles may seem vastly different at first glance, they each share a common theme; each style is heavily inspired by nature. From showcasing soft neutral tones paired with natural textures to using lush botanical murals or cool aquatic tones, interior designers are drawing inspiration from natural colour palettes to create a sense of serenity and safety within the home.
Back to Basics: Creating a Warm Aesthetic with Neutral Tones
Bathroom wall tile trends are returning to the simple, classic and timeless aesthetic of warm neutral tones. From soft white tiles to earthy timbers, rich natural stones and more, combining a selection of nature inspired hues and materials will create a warm and welcoming aesthetic in the bathroom. A strong emphasis on texture in the bathroom’s overall design will further enhance this warm atmosphere in a way that will truly activate the senses. The rustic texture of a natural timber can be replicated in modern porcelain timber tiles; rich, natural stone tiles will also add a luscious element of texture and pattern as will handmade tiles. Handmade bathroom wall tiles feature subtle uneven edges as well as an undulating surface finish that will create a soothing, tactile element in your new bathroom’s design scheme for an elegant finishing touch that will effortlessly complement a simple, neutral colour palette.
The elegant Brickland collection offers a Spanish handmade style bathroom wall tile option that combines classic square and rectangular shapes. Brickland is available in your choice of matte white or gloss white tiles, offering a soft and minimal backdrop for warmer finishes and textures in your new bathroom’s design scheme.
Bold & Colourful Bathroom Wall Tile Trends
For those looking to create a strong sense of drama in the bathroom, large format porcelain panels in mural designs are the perfect choice.

Inspired by traditional wallpaper designs, large format porcelain sheet tiles can be used in the bathroom to create a bold and charismatic touch with options available in lush botanical themes, geometric patterns and plenty more.

Keep it Cool with Dusty Aquatic Colour Options
Cool things down with subtle, dusty shades of blue and aqua! Aquatic tones are a classic choice for the bathroom; aside from their obvious connection to water, these colours also create a sense of tranquillity and serenity, making them an ideal fit in the home bathroom.
