The standard and popular trend is to have the same colour and material over the floor area but trends come and go and it is very in vogue at the moment to have patterns and colour variations on the floor and wall areas. This may incorporate using a central floor tile design or a mosaic tile pattern in the centre of the room which really creates an individual and unique floor tile design.
Having border floor and wall bathroom tiles can really break up floor tile colours and larger border tiles will really make an impression. These can be larger tile sizes made from natural stone such as travertine tiles or granite tiles. The colour variations can also be changed adding real contrast.
