Ways in which to style the Metro Tile in your Bathroom design

Posted by Gemma Paton 17th Feb 2020

Whether you are designing a family bathroom, an en-suite or a cloakroom toilet, the Metro tile is the perfect choice. Its versatility suits various styles, such as traditional vintage, minimalism or even industrial chic.

Initially developed to replicate the classic, underground subway look, we’ve compiled a selection of new and alternative ways in which to design your bathroom incorporating the Metro tile.

The Grid

Designed in a grid-like fashion, the original Metro Tile style is always a winner. If you’re keen on the idea of introducing the Metro Tile to your bathroom design, but are scared of the space feeling overwhelming, then consider incorporating minimalistic bathroom furniture. This bathroom design features the City Grey Gloss Wall-Hung Vanity Unit, Paulo Toilet, and Walk-In Shower Screen, making a feature of the Metro. A further consideration is grout. At Wholesale Domestic Bathrooms we have 8 colours available to suit your style, in this design we’ve chosen Dark Grey Grout.

 The Vertical

For a contemporary twist on the classic look, opt to tile the Metro vertically. Not only is this a chic way to display, but when utilised in smaller bathroom spaces, can also give the illusion of height. In this bathroom design, we’ve chosen to break up the room with a half painted wall, and half tiled wall, incorporating the Metro Grey Tile.

The Herringbone - Wall

Herringbone designs are growing in popularity. This style has the power to make the Metro Tile look more expensive than it actually is. We’ve chosen to incorporate Metro Cream Tiles, as a feature within a Traditional bathroom style. The Cream hue of the tile, allows for the chosen White Windsor Bathroom Furniture to pop out.

The Herringbone - Feature

Liven up your bathroom space with a Chevron effect tile style. In this design, we’ve created a chevron splashback for a Jack and Jill Basin duo using the Metro Grey Tiles and light grey grout. A splashback is an easy add to your bathroom design, instead of choosing an all over tiled wall, protecting your wall from water splashes, but remaining slick and trendy.
