Looking to create your perfect bathroom? We look at how stone effect floors can help create an on-trend family bathroom.

This month we look at some of the key stone look trends that are making an impact in our bathrooms.

Bathrooms are a key space within the home that are used by all of the family, so creating a practical space tends to be high on the list for many homeowners. Style is another key element and recreating the spa feel is top of the picks when it comes to design themes. Choosing a floor that sets the scene is a great start and a few accessories to compliment the overall look are perfect for cementing your theme.

It has never been easier to add the looks of real stone using vinyl flooring options and all the below trends are created using floors from our current ranges. Not only are these often a budget friendly option compared to real stone, but they also come with finishes that replicate its feel and slip resistant.


Terrazzo is not a new trend, but it is one that remains a popular choice for homeowners. Originating from Italy, Terrazzo is a surface created from varying chips of marble, glass, stone and quartz which creates its signature mottled colour pattern. Choosing an option that includes complimenting colour palettes is a great way to recreate the spa look and can be matched with accessories in similar colours.

This example is Bologna from our Artesia range and uses a mix of whites, greys, delicate tans and subtle blues which work beautifully with traditional and contemporary white sanitary ware.

Patterned Ceramic

Tiles have long been a favourite for bathroom areas and with vinyl you can have the looks of traditional patterned ceramics in on trend colour variations for both modern and traditional homes. This year saw the emergence of Classic Blue as a key colour trend and this particular colour lends itself well to traditional white sanitaryware. For an extra splash of luxury, combining the whole theme with silver taps or brassware and colour matching towels help complete the look.

The floor highlighted in this picture is Eleanor from our Ceramica Collection.

Classic Sands

Creamy sands add a calming effect to any room, so it is no surprise that they are a popular choice for homeowners looking to create a stunning sanctuary in their bathroom. This colour palette is also really flexible when it comes to style choices – so whether you are looking for modern or classic look it is an adaptable option. Combine with light neutrals for an airy feel or partner with dark blues and greens for that country house feel.

Featured floor is our Barcelona D from our Luxury Trends Collection.

Dark & Dramatic

Dark floors can add a real impact in bathrooms which are predominantly light neutrals. This bathroom highlights this perfectly with white walls, sanitaryware and skirting paired with a rich dark floor and carefully chosen accessories. This enduring theme is easily updated with a refresh in towels and trinket colours. The floor in this image is Brighton from The Comfytex Deluxe Collection.


Herringbone is a long enduring favourite for many and works especially well in smaller bathroom spaces. Its design helps draw the eye and give a feel of space in addition to looking fabulous!

Long associated with wooden floors, we have created this pattern in a subtle stone effect floor. The featured floor is Bilbao from The Ceramica Collection.

Glorious Grey

Grey continues to be a favourite for many homeowners. This versatile neutral is a great alternative to stark whites and can create a calming effect in any room. This particularly works well for bathrooms when it is all about creating a tranquil and inviting space. Picking up on this colour trend and combining with pattern adds an extra layer of interest. This featured floor is our latest from our collection and plays on the enduring charm of traditional monochromes.

Grey can be combined with a variety of colour palettes from burnt oranges through to cool blues. This flexibility will ensure that Grey is on every home owners radar for a while yet.
