Are Glossy Bathroom Tiles Outdated?

This is a question we get a lot.

Contrary to the notion that glossy tiles are completely outdated, we can categorically say this is not true.

Of course, it is all down to the taste of the individual, and while the more subtle minimalistic tile is certainly more popular, glossy tiles still hold their own.

Here’s why:

Reflect Light and Enhance Space: Glossy tiles possess a special quality that reflects light, creating a brighter and more open atmosphere in any bathroom. These are particularly beneficial in compact bathrooms or spaces with minimal natural light.

Timeless Elegance: With a lustrous finish, these tiles can bring a touch of elegance and luxury to any bathroom, perfect for those seeking to elevate their decor with sophistication and that ‘WOW’ factor.

Versatility in Design: With a wide range of colours, patterns, and sizes, glossy tiles offer limitless design options. Whether you prefer a contemporary aesthetic or a more traditional feel, glossy tiles can enhance your design.

Maintenance and Cleanliness: When it comes to maintenance and cleanliness, glossy tiles need regular cleaning to preserve their shine. Their smooth surface makes it easier to keep them clean and free of bacteria, which is important for bathrooms.
