Bamboo tiles and fake wood floor porcelaine tiled bathroom


After meeting up with clients yesterday I popped into a shop that had this really nice, simple bathroom. I think this bathroom would also look great in a home, so I took some photos to share with you guys.
 
The walls are covered in fake bamboo tiles and the floors are done with faux wood floor tiles. I've seen these bamboo tiles a million times and wasn't sure if they would look too fake, but I have to tell you, they looked great in this bathroom. The bamboo tiles went surprisingly well with the fake wood floor tiles.
 
It's funny, any time I see these glass topped vanities with the built in sinks I groan. I just can't help but think that you've just given yourself double the cleaning to do because you'll have to dust underneath the sinks too. So I always think why would people buy these? They are just giving themselves more work! However, I have to say I was wrong again because this vanity looked perfect in this bathroom. The combination of the glass top, casting an aqua tint on the panel bellow made me think of waves and water, then add in the bamboo tiles and wood floors and suddenly you are thinking of some tropical resort. All they needed was to add in a tropical air freshener et voila I'd have been looking for my bikini. Very relaxing. Plus the glass counter top makes the bathroom feel larger and brighter. A vanity with a quartz countertop would also look nice, but it probably wouldn't feel so open and airy. 



Here's a close up of the wall tiles:

And take 2, I was almost able to not have a shadow of my cell!
 

Trying to give you the 360 view of the bathroom...
 
The only decoration was this vase with wood reeds in it. Nice and simple.This
bathroom really didn't need any more decor.
 



Loved these little wall sconces.


If they only knew I was snapping all these pics of their bathroom! They must have thought yeeash that girl sure takes a long time in the bathroom!
 
Anyways, let me know if this bathroom inspires you for your bathroom renovation.Ok, I've said the word bathroom 4 times, now 5, in 3 sentences, time for me to go! Hope you are having a nice day!

Very nice bathroom :-) I'm not sure I could live with the glass countertop & sinks, because I'm terrible at dusting & cleaning! But it's definitely a great look, especially with the aqua surface. The wood-looking porcelain tiles are pretty cool too :-)

Hi Kelly,

I hate dusting so I could never live with it either! Glad to see I'm not the only one. Nice to see you.
