Bold pattern on the bathroom floor

Bathrooms can be rather sterile if they're all limestone tiles or have plain floors and walls. Don't be afraid to liven things up by going bold on the floor. Ca Pietra's new Algarve encaustic tiles (20x20cm, £4.80 each) are a nod back to the vibrant cement tiles beloved on the Iberian peninsula; while Italian manufacturer Refin offers the exuberant Majolica design on its hard-wearing porcelain tiles, part of its popular Frame collection. They're perfect for adding some voom to your bathroom and work well contrasted against plain wall tiles. For eminently affordable blue pattern, Mr Jones ceramic tile range at Tile Mountain is good value at £17.99 pm2

Refin products are made in Italy and it's a company that has achieved Ecolabel European Certification for several of its collections.
