Whilst subway, mosaic, and geometric tiles are the ones predicted to be in vogue for bathroom flooring trends in 2019, we understand that as a homeowner, there are times when you feel like you’re just tired of seeing the same tiles everytime you walk in your bathroom. The good news is, there are now tile alternative options available that are just as quality perfect as the conventional tiles you might have right now. Dive in below and start getting some inspiration!

#1. Shower Wall Panels

If seeing grout lines gives you a headache, you’ll find shower wall panels a perfect alternative. Shower wall panels are made from PVC materials and they look exactly like quality tiles except they come without the joins! They feature different styles and finishes and offer a wide range of tile-like effects. Other main features of shower wall panels is that it is easy to install and with its durable and lightweight finish, they look absolutely fantastic on the wall!

Take a look at this bathroom design from Innovate Building Solutions. We love how this bathroom design shows just how this type of alternative can compete with the usual bathroom look of tiles in terms of both aesthetic and quality!

#2. Paint

This choice may raise some eyebrows but if we give it a second thought, using paint can actually be a relatively cheap way to add a pop of colour into your bathroom design. In case you’re wondering, there are now special bathroom paints available in the market that can provide a tough moisture and steam-resistant finish.

The biggest takeaway you can get from this alternative is personalisation. The use of paint enables you to find the perfect colour and shade that will match just the type of colour you have in mind! Just visualise the aesthetic look you want and then paint your bathroom just the way you imagined it!

Now here are extremely important things to note if you’re looking to use paint for your bathroom walls:

  • The shinier the paint, the easier it is maintain and the more resistant it is to moisture.

  • If you want to go for a matte or flat colour, make sure that your bathroom space is well ventilated as flat paints typically don’t resist stains very well and tend to grow mold faster than the other paint sheens.

So, when purchasing, you want to make sure that the type of paint you buy perfectly suits your bathroom environment. If this is your first time renovating your bathroom wall using paint, we suggest you talk to an expert who can educate you more on how you can ensure you get the perfect paint type.

#3. CERAMIN Flooring

CERAMIN Flooring is a new waterproof floor that is durable tough and more importantly waterproof. It was developed as an alternative to natural stone and ceramic tiles. A combination of polypropylene with natural materials makes these tiles lighter and easier to work with. They can be attached to walls and floors in order to give rooms a uniform look. The bathroom and kitchen range is called Vario and features many different styles and designs.

If you’re a fan of charming and warm-toned colours, this choice will definitely suit your style. The bathroom design above from SUBU Design Architecture can give you a little inspiration on how wood aesthetics can impact a bathroom feel. See how the earthy colour brought warmth to the overall look of the space? Having this alternative can you give your bathroom a quick refresh of a spa-like experience when you’re ready to renovate your bathroom.

CERAMIN is becoming more readily available in the marketplace and can be found at various flooring specialists.
