Gone are the days of boring bathrooms. Today, everyone craves a pleasing space in which to unwind and practise self care. To present the latest bath trends, we consulted established Canadian stone and tile retailer Ciot.
Grey Is the New White
Modern and soothing, grey stands out: "The colour is versatile, chic and industrial. Plus, grey finishes are easier to clean than white ones," says Marie-Claude Fréchette, marketing director at Ciot. Light grey tiles and charcoal-toned bathroom fixtures are cool and contemporary, especially when combined with trendy black and brass metal finishes.
On the hot list are tiles that imitate raw and organic textures and mat- erials, such as wood, concrete and stone. "Stoneware tiles perfectly reproduce and imitate the essence of wood, the imperfections of natural stone and the texture of concrete," says Marie-Claude.
Terrazzo Is Back
A stylish, solid and beautiful material, terrazzo is back and better than ever. To highlight its funky spotted pattern, pair it with streamlined white fixtures and minimal accessories.
Fun patterned tiles, such as those from Ciot's Metro line, lend themselves to playful combinations – swirls complement chevrons, which in turn jibe with blocks. "Affordable simple tiles take on a graphic look when paired in unexpected ways," says Marie-Claude. "To add depth, mix up matte and glossy finishes."
