Why Designing a Bathroom with White Tiles is a Good Idea?

Why Design White Bathroom

The majority of home-owners decide to tile their bathrooms. They can be tiled in many different styles and different colours. That said, white tiles are the most common colour tile used in designing bathrooms. Why is this?

The Benefits of Using White Bathroom Tiles

We’ve all been in countless amounts of bathrooms over our lifetime and more often than not those bathrooms were tiled in white. There’s a couple of reasons why white tiles are so popular with homeowners. The colour white communicates a sense of cleanliness, in addition to lightness if you mark/stain darker tiles it is usually much more noticeable. One of the worst fears people have is that visitors to their home might think they have a dirty bathroom, choosing white tiles will only help keep your bathroom looking  clean for visitors.


Another advantage of deciding to go with white tiles in your bathroom is they are probably never going to be out of fashion, always staying relevant with current trends It’ll never be boring. Many tile lovers pick this colour because it makes their bathroom space feel bright, modern and luxurious.

What Tiles Should I Use

The next question you might have is, what tiles would you recommend? We would suggest that you consider getting white metro tiles. Metro tiles have been a popular choice for decades. If you’ve ever been on the London Underground System you will already be familiar with these tiles. The platforms were lined with metro tiles which are still present in the current day.

How should I dress up my bathroom once I have my white tiles in? We suggest that you dress up your bathroom with colour cabinets suited to your style.  It is important that all your bathroom appliances blend in with the colour of the room. Your cabinets and vanity should co-ordinate with white floors and your chosen wall tiles.
