Rustic-Inspired Tiles

With nature-inspired styles and natural décor continuing to be a popular look for 2024, the rustic bathroom trend is also still persisting, though in more subtle ways. Whether you want to go all-out rustic or prefer to incorporate certain elements of the look into your bathroom, there are lots of ways you can achieve this with tiles.

If you want some inspiration for rustic-inspired tiling, read the rest of the blog to find out our top picks for tiles which we think fit the trend well.

A twist on wood-effect tile styles

The first tile style which likely springs to mind when mentioning rustic looks is wood and wood-effect tiling is a great way to get the real timber aesthetic without the high price tag. With lots of finishes and colours available, you can also adapt the traditional look and opt for something more contemporary, choosing alternate tones instead of the classic brown.

For example, the Loire Pearl Chevron Rectified Matt Porcelain Tile has a light grey colour palette which will complement a wide range of décor and help to create a calming ambience. With authentic graining detail and a modern matt finish, this wall and floor tile is perfect for adding some subtle rustic charm to your interior.

Another wood-effect tile with a contemporary twist is the Cracovia Gris Wood Herringbone Porcelain Tile, which has a darker grey tone and a moodier vibe, again with a matt finish and suitable for both walls and floors.

This rectangular porcelain tile is very robust and scratch-resistant and will bring the wood-effect style into your bathroom in an eye-catching way, with white grouting highlighting the darker colour palette and really making these tiles stand out.

Warm, earthy tile tones

Another way to achieve the rustic look is with rich eathy tones which bring the outdoors indoors, with both plain and patterned tiles great for use either individually or mixed for a contrasting aesthetic.

The Africa Hex Matt Porcelain Tile is a large hexagonal wall and floor tile featuring a variety of brown, green and white tones. Incorporating leaf designs along with striped patterns and wood-effect sections split across the tiles, the result is a visually interesting aesthetic which has both depth and texture.

With each tile featuring a different design, you can arrange them in your preferred format, mixing the patterns and tones for a more creative look. Made from strong porcelain and with a modern matt finish, the Africa Hex Tile will bring some warm rustic charm to your bathroom and will work well alongside a range of other décor.

The Africa Hex Mat Porcelain Tile features a mixture of earthy brown, green and white tones, with a modern matt finish.

If you prefer something plainer but which still has depth and visual interest, then the Caracalla Beige Porcelain Tile is ideal. This large-format rectangular tile has a beige colour palette, set against a rich cream background, with a subtle swirl which adds the depth.

These tiles also come with rectified edges so have a more precise finish and can be laid more closely together, resulting in finer grout lines and a cohesive look when laid. A matt finish to the tiles also gives them a contemporary style, while the porcelain material means they’re very robust as well as being scratch and stain-resistant.

If you prefer something a bit bolder, however, then the Brasilia Emerald Polished Rectified Porcelain Tile is a great choice as it has a rich dark green colour palette with gold and cream veining detail. This large-format tile has a rectangular shape and a polished gloss finish which reflects the light, highlighting those accent tones within the marble-effect design.

These tiles also have rectified edges, giving them a more precise look and allowing them to be laid more closely together for that seamless aesthetic. Made from high-quality porcelain, the Brasilia Emerald Tiles are suitable for using on both walls and floors and are again, scratch and stain-resistant. They’re therefore a robust tile which will give you an elegant earthy-inspired look that will last long into the future.

The Brasilia Emerald Polished Rectified Porcelain Tile has a rich green tone with veining detail.

For added pops of colour, meanwhile, the Marrakech Hexagon Tile features a mixture of bright tones to give a contemporary tale on the traditional rustic look. The beauty of the rustic aesthetic is that it incorporates a range of tones, including burnt orange and amber, along with greens, blues and more, so it’s very versatile and can be achieved in a number of ways.

With a hexagonal shape and a modern matt finish, these ceramic tiles also have a rustic appeal in terms of texture, as they have that stone-effect aesthetic which has the distressed, natural finish associated with the rustic look.

The Marrakech Hexagon Tiles have a natural, rustic look, being made from ceramic and feature a mixture of rich, earthy tones which will add vibrancy and a modern twist to your bathroom.

Another quirky design which will bring the rustic vibe to your interior is the Ainhoa Decor Blue Ceramic Tile, with each rectangular tile featuring various squares of alternate designs, including geometric and mosaic-inspired patterns. Made from ceramic, these tiles also have a distressed, rustic aesthetic with that natural baked finish, so are perfect for cheering up your room and adding rustic charm.

With a mixture of patterns as well as a colour palette which includes rich amber, brown, blue, grey and white, the Ainhoa Décor Blue Ceramic Tile is suitable for using on walls. It’s therefore ideal for creating a feature area or can be used across the room for a bolder look.
