What Houzz contributors are saying:
Tap into patternPatchwork floor tiles make this bathroom characterful, and the flooring isn’t the end of the room’s pattern, with a floral on the upholstered chair. Oversized blooms in an inky colourway on a white background make this seating contemporary rather than country, though, and the charcoal finish on the panelling also contributes to the room’s sophisticated feel.
Don’t suppress your personalityBathrooms aren’t just an area to wash and brush your teeth. Considering the amount of time we spend in them, they’re almost becoming extensions of our living areas, so they should echo the style we have in the rest of the house.Be inspired by this bathroom and don’t be afraid to use rich colour, patterned tiles and even upholstered furniture to create a personality-filled space in which you’ll love chilling out.See more unique, eclectic bathrooms.
Add textureAs the trend for breaking down the boundaries between the different rooms in the home continues, it’s now popular to bring living room elements into the bathroom. ‘We recently completed a project where the client wanted the bathroom to be like a library, with timber cladding, a beautiful rug and bookshelves,’ recalls Rory Macpherson. ‘People are rightly cautious about the effects of moisture in bathrooms, but as long as there’s good extraction, and ideally fresh air flows, then items such as rugs and freestanding chairs can be used to create an eclectic feel.’
Introduce colour with patternA bathroom should still be a relaxing space, so replacing the bathroom flooring with mismatched mosaic tiles could be all the colour a classic bathroom like this needs. If you’re embracing the eclectic theme, add a few other touches in muted tones that won’t overwhelm the space, such as this grey-and-white printed chair and a pastel striped blind.Find more inspiration for patterned floors
