If there’s one clear trend that we are drawn to in 2017, it’s Industrial.
This style oozes a sleek, minimal and downright, modern glam that clients are searching to bring into their homes.
So how can you adapt this trend in your own home? We share a few ideas to consider before implementing this style.
Floor and Wall Tiles
Our pick: Mystone Gris Fleury Grigio or Surface Mid Grey Matt
Our friends at, A Fresh Touch Interiors, have perfected this style at their ‘Ashburton Tree House’ (pictured above), balancing cool greys and raw wood to elevate a central bathroom design.
Create this seamless look by using a simple cement look tile across both the floor and walls. This look works best when using a large tile paired with grout of a similar colour – seamlessly joining the tiles into a flat, overall coverage. Keep your tile choice simple, but ensure your tiles have depth in their colour. This will avoid the colour falling flat over such a large surface.
Show Your Personality
When you have a neutral tile as a base, this opens the door to more expression with your accessories.
Try choosing unique light pendants, textured towels and knick knacks to complement the industrial design and highlight focal areas around the room. (These focus points can be more easily changed each season at a minimal cost).
Plants can also be a great addition to an industrial bathroom, bringing life and freshness to the room. Need some advice on which plants grow best in the bathroom? Check out this helpful article.
Our Pick: Ecowood Canela Clapboard or Ecowood Jacaranda Patina
Wooden textures create an earthly warmth, and the vanity is the perfect place to utilise this. This beautiful, bespoke timber vanity is the real (wooden) deal, however the same look can be achieved easily with tiles.
Wood-look tiles can be a great alternative to real wood, especially in wet areas such as the bathroom, and here at Elegance Tiles we specialise in building custom furniture using tiles.
Windows and Mirrors
It is important to consider the natural light available in your bathroom before settling on the design; otherwise an industrial bathroom can feel more drab than inspiring. The ‘Ashburton Tree House’ utilises an entire wall of windows allowing sunlight to shine in and elevating a sense of serenity and connection with nature. However, if you’re bathroom positioning is not quite as luxurious, you can achieve a similar sense of openness with a large mirror and effective bathroom lighting.
