How to achieve the vintage look with modern tiles

vintage bathroom style

Vintage, by definition, refers to styles that imitate a bygone era. Synonymous with words such as retro, shabby chic and rustic this style has captured the hearts of many budding design fanatics.

At Sai interiors we love this style. Not only does it create timeless interiors but it creates a look that gives a warm and cosy feeling to a scheme.

In this blog we’ll give you our top 3 choices to create the vintage look using tiles!

Metro Tile –

When it comes to creating the vintage look, the number one spot is definitely taken by one of our firm favourites. A staple in any vintage design scheme….the METRO tile! They originally emerged as a feature in the London Underground in the early 1900s and have since taken on an iconic status for all things vintage. There is a huge range of these tiles in all colours and a choice of sizes at Home Tiles. These are fabulous for bathroom walls and kitchen splashbacks to bring colour and style into a scheme. You can be clever with the use of grout too. A strong contrasting grout colour makes the tiles pop and looks really effective.

Wood Effect tiles –

The other look that is hugely popular and leans slightly towards modern rustic is the distressed wood look. At Home Tiles they have a huge range of wood-effect tiles which can be used on both walls and floors to bring a vintage yet modern cosy look to a space. The great thing about these tiles is that they require very little maintenance and are perfect for use in spaces with a high volume of traffic…kids and pets…no problem!

The Patterned Tile –

The last few years has seen a huge emergence of patterned tiles. Particularly in this last year, patterned tiles have come into their own. The range of tiles on the market is huge and they now come in all shapes, sizes and colours. We absolutely love using these tiles. The simple reason being that there really is no better way to create impact and the wow factor in a room. Home Tiles have an amazing range of patterned tiles to suit all budgets. We used these amazing tiles from Home Tiles to create an absolute ‘wow’ factor in this bathroom for a clients period property.
