very small bathroom almost square - if you imagine standing outside the door looking in you have:

Sink directly in front of you below window and shelf
LEFT toilet
RIGTH Bath running the wall behind the door

We have a while suite being fitted and need to order tiles for the floor and walls - havent a clue!

I was thinking beigey type wall tiles and a black/dark grey floor
Then I like the idea of white wall tiles all the way up to the ceiling

Does anyone have any ideas or links they could share please

I only have white - white tiles, white paint, white-ish flooring. Blue blackout blind for colour.

Could have been my bathroom which sadly will have to wait another year. In my last flat, I had dark grey floor tiles, white wall tiles and a blue turquoise mosaic wall border half way up the wall. Very happy with the results and would do again.

big wall tiles apparently make the room look bigger (and are quicker / cheaper for tradesman to tile). Not sure if same goes for floor tiles.

Sounds exactly like mine. Ours is an ex local authority house and I think they all have the same bathrooms lol.

We have big white Matt tiles on the bath wall and the sink / toilet backs onto wall. The left wall next to the toilet and the little bit if wall behind bathroom door will be painted a creamy stone colour, it's just been re plastered. We have a light blue striped shower curtain above bath and a pale blue floor.

Our bathroom is tiny. We used cheap big square travertine stone tiles (sort of pale sandstone colour) on the floor, bath surround and about 2.5 m high on the wall around the bath and shower screen. We hung the loo and washbasin so just tiled up to shelf height there.

We live in a hard water area and the tiles seem very forgiving (we'd forever have to be scrubbing off chalk marks from dark tiles or cleaning deposits off shiny tiles). Preparation took a while (sealing waxing etc) but now we just rub them down with an e cloth and then wax every 6 months or so.

White everything, ceiling, suite, tiles. Light coloured flooring for maximum spaciousness feeling.

Our not so small bathroom has dark grey floor and it does make it look smaller. I would say white wall tiles and beige, almost white floor tiles.

White everything with terracotta floor tiles for mine - I like to pretend I'm holidaying in the Med when I'm in it!
