Create a Statement with Different Laying Patterns
Traditional square or rectangular white bathroom tiles can be used in many different ways in your design to create an element of interest. Rectangular shaped tiles for example can be laid in a traditional stacked format (either running vertically or horizontally across the walls or your flooring), they can be laid in the trending herringbone tile pattern or in the timeless brick bond style as demonstrated below. Using a contrasting coloured grout (deep greys, charcoals or even soft black coloured grouts for example) would create a sharp contrast that will emphasise the laying pattern of your tiles, adding a wonderfully timeless aesthetic to the overall design while also adding a sense of drama and pattern that will elevate the simple white bathroom tile.
