Stripes? They’re here to stay. From fashion to interiors, they’re a forever trend and are set to be bigger and better than ever in 2024. Don’t go thinking they’re reserved to ticking stripe curtains and circus stripe cushions, style up your bathroom with striped tiles and you’ll find yourself top of the decor charts. Over to our Head of Creative Grazzie for her five striped bathroom scheme picks to inspire your interiors this spring. 

1. STRIPES, BUT MAKE THEM MICRO WITH BAMBOO FOREST X AVOCADO

“Some tiles come with stripes printed straight onto their surface (see our Deckchair porcelain tiles as a case in point), and some do stripes in a more subtle textured way. Enter Bamboo.

“These porcelain tiles are made up of matchstick stripes, and with their satin finish that varies from matte to gloss you end up with a wall that’s so textural you will find yourself running your hand over it every time you go to the bathroom. 

Go one better and combine two colours of Bamboo tiles. One row in one colourway, beneath a layer in a different shade, and repeat.

2. TWO-TONAL ON THE TUB WITH PETITE GLOSS BLUE X SKY

“Next up, a bathroom so mesmerising you may find you’ll in a total trend trance on the daily. There’s a lot to admire from the border art and multi-directional metro tile layout, but we’re here to talk about stripes, so all eyes on that bath tub.

“We used our washed pastel effect porcelain tiles, aptly named Petite because of their bitesize form, laying them vertically and alternating the colours between the gloss Blue and Sky finishes. The result? A bath panel seriously upgraded and earning its style stripes.

“Just when you thought a bath couldn’t get more inviting…” 

3. SAY YES TO PINK AND ORANGE STRIPES WITH SEATON MARMALADE X SHRIMP

“There are so many colour combinations that I love, but one of my absolute favourites has to be pink and orange (a bit controversial some might say, but to me, it’s punchy, powerful and full of panache, done right). 

“It’s a colour coupling that might take your mind to the iconic fuchsia pink and coral combo worn by Taylor Swift at the Grammy’s by Atelier Versace, but if that’s a bit too strong, then try on for size the rich and warming Seaton tile tones of Marmalade and Shrimp

“We used them in this fiery shower room to zone the sink area from the shower enclosure, lining them up to give rise to a ceiling to floor pinstriped wall in colours that are bold but far from brash. I love.” 

4. PATTERN MASH-UP WITH PETITE WHITE X SKY

“Our Petite tiles are back for a second round of stripes, but this time in a very different context. Still two-tonal, still vertically aligned, but a scheme that proves stripes don’t have to be the only pattern in the room.

“The gentle pastel tones of Petite in Sky and White but this time in the matte finish draw upon the colours in the botanical wallpaper to help them all tie together. Tiling halfway up the wall in a wainscotting-inspired approach creates further balance with a single row of the Petite tiles clearly sectioning off the two patterns. Both busy, both beautiful, yet balanced and 100% happy in a room together. 

“P.S. the flooring is our Carpenter wooden-style tile.”

5. FLOOR TO WALL STRIPES WITH DECKCHAIR X SEATON

"A second appearance from our Seaton tiles in a multi pastel palette combination – striped of course. Pink Sands, Deep Sea, Sky and White Sands combine and create a stripe upon stripe of complementary colours. But it doesn’t end there. Eyes to the floor and you’ll see further stripes still by way of our Deck Chair floor tiles in Rose. Why lay those stripes one way when you can mix things up a bit more and have multidirectional floor stripes? Because of the carefully considered colour palette, you can 100% get away with as much striped playfulness as you please.

“Proof that too many stripes certainly don’t spoil the broth but make it taste all the more scrumptious.”
