Blues for the bathroom may seem like one big cliché at first, but this is the new blue; dark, moody hues, offset with a scattering of gold and botanical accessories. Perfect for a large bathroom (preferably with high ceilings and plenty of natural light), dark blue, indigo or navy walls look chic, stylish and timeless. Our Tarkett Starfloor LVT in Blue Pine is ideal for bathrooms and works especially well with this timeless colour scheme.

Make a statement

Sometimes you see a floor so amazing that you have to base your whole room around it. Our award-winning Mardi Gras vinyl is one of those. At first glance it looks like tiles — and on second glance you truly appreciate the bold pattern. Vinyl flooring works like a dream in bathrooms: easy to keep clean, water and slip-resistant and easy to fit yourself, statement floors are becoming more and more in demand — and when they look this good, it’s really not a surprise!

The botanical trend is here to stay. Fill your bathroom with fresh or faux plants and green accessories to introduce the scheme gently. Stick to a neutral floor, such as our Flair Bolivia vinyl that is simply perfect for busy family homes. We love the idea of incorporating botanical framed prints and vibrant patterned wallpaper to add an extra layer of interest to the room.

Recreate that serene spa atmosphere from the comfort of your own home with a subtle patterned floor in muted tones. Stone coloured tiles on the walls complement the scheme perfectly and helps to create a calming feeling — perfect for a long soak! Add a touch of individuality with a patterned floor and keep accessories in the same soft hues for a timeless, yet modern feel.
