Want to showcase the washbasin area? Go with a different aesthetic for the shower? Get inventive and create something special.

Are you renovating your bathroom? Not sure how to decorate it? When it comes to materials, ceramic is certainly a great accessory. However, there are people who think that ceramic tiles are boring, and that you have to choose the same design for the entire room. Nothing could be further from the truth. That’s because in addition to having ceramic flooring and cladding options for all tastes (and bathrooms), Colorker’s collections have been expanded to include new relief tiles and decorations to achieve bathrooms that are as original as they are perfectly coordinated.

As experts in ceramic manufacturing with more than 30 years of experience, at Colorker we want to inspire you with different bathroom tile combinations. Take a look at the list of ideas we’ve put together and design your temple of well-being with your favourite ceramic aesthetic.

How do you combine tiles for showers?

Showers are tricky spaces, requiring materials that are easy-to-maintain and highly resistant to damp and direct contact with water. Porcelain is the ideal material for this purpose. Its boundless aesthetic options also allow you to combine tiles in the shower itself or make it stand out against other areas of the bathroom. Here are some combined tile ideas for your bath and shower.

Bathrooms with two or three materials combined: the warmth of wood vs. other options

When it comes to choosing tile combos for bathrooms, there are more daring ‘souls’ who like to mix and match materials for maximum contrast and originality; and then there are those who take a more conservative approach, preferring to play up the warmth of the space with wooden flooring.

Bathroom tile colour combinations

Pantone announces the colour or colours of the year every December, influencing colour choices across interior decorating and design.

However, they can be actually be very elegant, if you know how to coordinate them correctly.

What’s the best colour for a bathroom?

The ideal bathroom colour depends on your space and needs. For small, narrow or dimly lit bathrooms, it’s a good idea to choose bright, neutral colours that make the room feel bigger. For larger bathrooms, it depends on the latest trends and your preferred design styles. For a more Mediterranean vibe, you can opt for blues and aquamarines, while more uplifting colours like red will give it a vibrant, bold feel. Grey, beige and earthy shades are ideal for creating a relaxing, calming atmosphere.
