This year sees us being more brave with our interiors and particularly our bathrooms.

Bright pattern and imagery has pushed away subtle shades and plain tiling. It’s all about going maxamilist in your bathroom this year.

Wallpaper from westonebathrooms.com

An option that is growing in popularity is wall murals, be it on tiles or wallpaper. Although these can be quite expensive to have made to measure, the effect is dramatic and so worth it. The go to pattern is still florals, which you can understand as they create the drama at the same time bringing a softness to a room.

If you are feeling brave look at painting tiles yourself or getting an artist to commission something special.

An alternative to tiles is waterproof wallpaper which can give you the same tile like effect to look at but it’s much simpler to put up. West One Bathrooms do a beautiful range of wallpapers.
