8 playful bathroom tile designs for a creative and characterful space

Traditionally a utiliarian space, the bathroom has become an arena where consumers can let their imaginations run wild – Maria D Arráez, director of Tile of Spain UK, reveals the latest designs for a more playful interior.

Whether used on a bathroom floor or as a statement splashback, it's undeniable that porcelain and ceramic tiles are a truly practical choice for high moisture areas like a bathroom. Easy to maintain, non-absorbent, stain-resistant, water-resistant and hygienic, ceramic tiles boast an array of benefits for homes. But adding playful tiles into a bathroom is a great way to incorporate colour, design and impact into a scheme – and with such a range of sizes, patterns and colours to choose from, there is a product to suit any style.

From themed motifs like floral prints and natural-effect stone designs to mix-and-match surfaces, vintage inspired patterns or textured designs, the trend towards playful tiles reflects a broader desire to make bathrooms not just practical, but also enjoyable and expressive spaces.
