In this article, we’ll explore different ways to create an Italian style bathroom with our statuarietto marble tiles. Characterized by a crisp white background and bold grey veining, our Statuarietto Marble Tile Collection is perfect for an Italian-style bathroom. The tile collection is available in three different sizes, 12″ x 12″, 18″ x 18″ and 12″ x 24″, offering something to suit bathrooms of all sizes.
The Features of an Italian Style Bathroom
This style of design encompasses features of all sorts, but some of the main ones include sleek furniture, marble wall and floor tiles, and a stylish, relaxing atmosphere.
Many Italian style bathrooms also include a spacious walk-in shower. Typically located in a corner, a walk-in shower has tiled walls and is surrounded by a large sheet of transparent glass. If you don’t already have a walk-in shower, you will need to excavate the ground level to integrate a waste kit. Once this is in place, you can then install a shower tray or tiled floor.
No Italian-style bathroom is complete without a luxurious marble tile. Characterized by its busy thin veining pattern, Statuarietto Marble is a firm favorite of Italian design. Typically, the marble has a polished finish for a premium vibe. Our Statuarietto Marble Tiles are available in a range of different sizes to suit bathrooms of all sorts. There’s also the choice of a square or rectangular design, allowing you to create the bathroom of your dreams.
The bidet is another common appliance in Italian style bathrooms. It’s used less nowadays, but it’s still very practical for everyday hygiene and certainly adds an Italian-vibe to space.
Choice of Furniture
In Italian bathrooms, the furniture is often raised off the ground instead of being placed directly on the floor. Installing the furniture on the walls makes cleaning underneath much easier and will give your bathroom a hint of Italian luxury. Wall-mounted furniture also creates a roomy and pleasant space and gives the impression of being weightless.
With no feet, wall-mounted furniture is fastened to the bathroom wall to create a clean and uncluttered space. Once professionally secured, the furniture is durable and has the benefit of easy cleaning. Wall-mounted accessories also allow you to showcase your Statuarietto Marble floor tiles.
Using Tiles in an Italian Style Bathroom
As mentioned, marble tiles are crucial to Italian bathroom design. Our Statuarietto Marble tiles are the perfect way to implement a touch of Italian luxury in your bathroom. Whether you use them on your walls, floor, or even both, the marble tiles will give your space a sophisticated feel.
Statuarietto Polished Marble Tiles 12×12
Our Statuarietto Marble tiles are available in three sizes: 12″x 12″, 18″ x 18″ and 12″x 24″. The 12″x12″ tiles are ideal for smaller spaces with less room to play with. The small tiles are also popular amongst those looking for a more intricate design. One tile covers a 1.00 square foot area.
Statuarietto Polished Marble Tiles 18×18
The slightly larger 18″x 18″ tiles work well in larger bathrooms, creating an almost seamless design when thinly set. Another benefit of the larger tile is fewer grout lines, which can prove helpful when it comes to keeping the space clean. One piece of this item covers a 2.25 square foot area.
Statuarietto Polished Marble Tiles 12×24
If you prefer the rectangle style of tile, the 12″x24″ Statuarietto Marble Tiles will suit you best. Many people believe the larger, rectangular tiles create a fresher, more modern appearance than the square counterparts. Of course, this is all down to personal preference so go with whatever style suits your space the best.
Just like the larger square tiles, the rectangular tiles have a larger surface area and therefore require fewer grout lines. Not only does this make cleaning easier, but it also creates an almost seamless appearance when the tiles are thinly set.
A note from our designer…
The beauty of marble tiles is that each one is unique. However, it also means that it’s impossible to showcase the exact markings in photographs or samples. When your tiles arrive, double-check that you’re happy with the natural charm before placing your order and installing them in your bathroom. Either way, you can rest assured that when you choose these tiles, your bathroom will be one-of-a-kind, which we think is exactly what every homeowner should strive for.
