Handmade Moorish designs, known as Zelliges, bring unusual pattern to a bathroom and are especially successful in wetrooms and shower enclosures, creating a hammam feel. In Britain, Habibi and Studio Dar both specialise in these Arabesque tiles, but Fired Earth also has these fabulous Paris Caberet tiles in its new collection.
Glossy tiles in a muted shade will reflect light, making the room brighter and giving the overall impression of a bigger space. They also have the added advantage of making the space look clean and shiny (provided you wipe them down often!).
