Floral tile inspiration

With nature-inspired décor a continuing trend in bathrooms, the floral tile is another element of this – and can be embraced in a variety of ways. And – while you might initially assume that floral designs are always bold and bright, they can in fact be ideal for introducing a calm and relaxing ambience in your home, with many more muted and subtle styles available.

If you’re intrigued and want to find out more about how to incorporate floral designs into your bathroom – and what’s available – then read to the end of the blog for inspiration …

Flower features on tiles

While some floral tiles can be more abstract and subtle with their design, the first style which usually springs to mind is one which clearly features distinct flowers and foliage.

For example, the Hibiscus Oxide Matt Hexagon Tile is a hexagonal-shaped tile with a colourful floral design which mixes natural, earthy tones with accents of vibrant yellow in the hibiscus flowers as a contrast to their white petals. The overall effect is one which is brightening but not too bold, so even if you aren’t a fan of very colourful tiles, these have just enough pigment to be eye-catching without being overpowering.

The hexagonal shape also gives them added interest and character, while the floral pattern differs across the tiles, so they can be laid in a variety of ways, depending on what look you want. Some of the tiles subsequently feature more flowers, while others depict leaves or have a plainer pattern.

The hibiscus flower itself also has a delicate, elegant appearance, which gives these tiles a more sophisticated look, while the matt finish delivers a modern aesthetic.

Abstract floral designs

For a twist on the traditional floral design, however, something like the Orla Grafito Decor Ceramic Wall Tile adopts a different approach, featuring a more abstract design and making the floral motifs geometric in form. The result is a stylish, contemporary tile which will draw the eye with these quirkier visuals.

Grey – a very calming tone which goes well with a range of décor – is also an inspiring choice for the colour palette, as these tiles subsequently don’t depict flowers in their natural shades.

The Orla Grafito Décor Tiles are completely grey, with alternating darker and lighter shades across the designs which add depth to the tiles. Together with the patterning and abstract style of this, the overall effect is a stylish tile which creates a lot of visual interest with the varying pattern and that intricate, artistic design.

These Spanish wall tiles are also very robust and come in other variations, with solid colour wall tiles and matching floor tiles also available, so you can mix and match the styles as you wish.

With a modern matt finish, this striking patterned tile offers a subtle way to incorporate the floral aesthetic into your room and can be used on both walls and floors.

The matt surface also gives it a more modern look, while the colour palette has a cool, calming effect which is perfect for bathrooms.
