White tiles in the cheap 150mm format are not great but different sizes are good. Also consider texture. We have 100mm satin tiles. They hide watermarks a treat! We have them, 100mm t&g boarding/bath panel, an oak top, chhrome and glass so it is a limited palette of materials but i am not keen on fussy stuff. So i dont mind the idea of one wall of the same tiles as long as the whole look doesnt come over as commercial toilets! What are you planning elsewhere in the room?
Thanks all. I think DH's problem is that we've spent 8yrs in rented house with 10cm square white tiles and he's v keen to get away from that!
It'll be a fairly small shower room, with walk in shower across the far end, then this sink set into a shelf running length of room from shower cubicle, with slate floor tiles in shelf and the aqua quartz tiles on the front of the shelf to make white porcelain furniture stand out.
Our bathroom is all white - large matt white tiles and then accented with blue tiles around sink etc. I love it- clean lines etc and had loads of compliments. You defo need a dark floor to go with it though. Colourful towels and accessories are the way to go!
