Summer is a good time to do homework. You can take advantage of the fact that you have more free time and decide to undertake that reform for which you never find the time. If the goal is the bathroom, walls included, start by catching up on the trends that are triumphing today in the field of wall tiles.

Find your sources of inspiration
It is the starting point to be able to choose: to know first-hand the decorative keys of modern bathrooms. This way you will be very clear about what you like and what you don’t like, what materials seem decorative to you and what are the combinations that are in line with the project you have in mind.

Look for ideas that inspire you among the proposals of the firms in the sector, in specialized publications, on social networks, etc. Keep in mind that, in addition to being beautiful, it is essential that your new bathroom is also practical.

Tiles that set the tone
Ceramic continues to be one of the star materials for bathroom walls, due to the many advantages it offers. Not only is it practical and resistant, with almost zero maintenance and easy cleaning, but it is modern and technologically very advanced.

Today, tiles with geometric designs and arranged in original shapes, mosaics and small formats, but also schemes of large XXL-size pieces that provide a sense of continuity, triumph.

You can choose subway-style tiles, glazed and with a glossy finish, or ceramic that accurately imitates other materials such as wood, stone or cement.

Very original installation patterns
Forget about the classic horizontal or vertical tile scheme. Now it is a trend to place them following a little more elaborate patterns. It can be, for example, herringbone, zigzag following a chevron- style pattern, joint (so that the joints do not coincide, in the style of subway tiles), etc. There are plenty of ideas to explore that will fuel your creativity.

Pieces with relief
In addition to taking into account the format, color, brightness or tile placement scheme, now you can also decorate the walls of your bathroom with embossed pieces that will provide a different and very original touch. You have a wide panorama to choose from, with more or less large and marked models and patterns.

Elegant marble
The sophistication of marble is one of the trends that have been going strong for the walls of today’s bathrooms. And it is not strange, because it has everything: it is a resistant material capable of lasting over time, it is beautiful with its more or less marked veins, and it is timeless, so it will not be outdated.

Black and white finishes get all the attention in today’s bathrooms, but you can also choose from a wide range of gray tones, for example.

Bet on microcement
Functional, decorative and very modern. This is microcement, a coating that does not lose its relevance for many years to come. If you are into simple bathrooms, with a minimalist or industrial spirit, this material is perfect for you.

It also has very advantageous technical characteristics, since it is waterproof so it can also be installed in the shower area. In this way, a very decorative feeling of continuity is achieved. Its soft and pleasant texture also stands out.

The decorative power of wallpaper
There are no limits to this coating that continues to be a trend in our homes for many years to come. The bathroom does not escape its influence and becomes one more space in which to display it. Of course, you should choose vinyl papers specially designed to withstand humid environments without deteriorating. They perfectly resist splashes and condensation that occurs in bathrooms.

Want to put it on an old-fashioned tile wall? You don’t have to remove them. All you have to do is apply leveling paste to fill the joints and smooth the supporting wall. It will be perfect.

Moldings and panels that are trending
You may think that decorative moldings are typical of classic spaces of the past. Nothing is further from reality! Bringing an infallible aesthetic touch to any space (including the bathroom), wall panels will elevate the category of your bathroom to infinity.

They are made of polyurethane, so they are resistant and withstand humidity. They can be painted and decorated and are easily cleaned. In addition, they are so easy to install that you can do it yourself. For this you will have to prepare the wall (it must be clean and dry) and glue the panels with a special adhesive that achieves perfect adhesion.

Combining materials: an infallible idea
Do you want to get a plus of style in your bathroom? Bet on mixing different materials to achieve a more surprising and original result. Tiles, wallpaper, paint… Choose two that you particularly like and combine them on the walls.

Put tile covering, for example, or a wooden wainscoting at the bottom of the walls, and leave the paint or wallpaper for the top. Thus, the critical area, which is the one below, will be more protected against friction, stains, etc.

For areas covered with paint, choose one that is anti-humidity, suitable for bathrooms and kitchens. It will last much longer.
