With all the different shapes, colours, textures, finishes and combinations available, it can be hard to make a decision when choosing tiles and mosaics! But taking some time to look at the possibilities is very important. These choices determine the entire look and atmosphere of your bathroom.
Don’t get overwhelmed by choice, though - browsing the options can be a lot of fun! To help you in your approach, here’s some inspiration:
Mosaics add the ultimate luxurious touch to your bathroom refurbishment. It can make a bathroom look completely different: more sophisticated, more chic and more distinguished.
You simply have to find a sumptuous colour that matches the rest of the bathroom. If you’re aiming for that luxury look, gold, silver, and copper are great choices. Textures are also important to add some details and make the bathroom look even more elegant.
