Have Your Own Traditional Moroccan Bathroom
A Moroccan style bathroom is high on the list of trends for many homeowners at the moment. With bold colours, creative patterns and elegant wall finishings, it is hard not to fall in love with this latest global trend.
Exotic Wall Tiles
Moroccan-style tiles are very versatile and come in an array of colours, ranging from subtle to stand-out designs. Tiles can be plain or patterned and can compliment walls and bathroom furniture. Blue tiles are particularly en vogue at the moment, as they create a calm and relaxing atmosphere to any bathroom.
Colourful Floor Tiles
Classic Moroccan floor tiles are simply stunning and will give any room the wow factor. Easy to install and maintain, Moroccan floor tiles are well worth the investment. As floor tiles can be expensive, it is important to spend time looking at different patterns to make sure you truly love the type you choose. Once the floor has been installed you can keep the walls and bathroom furniture as simple as possible so that there are not too many clashing patterns.
Picturing Moroccan style decorations conjures up images of busy patterns and bright colours, but if you are a minimalist at heart, then you can still achieve an authentic North African vibe. Moroccan plastering, known as Tadelakt, is a form of lime plaster that leaves contrasting textures on walls for an authentic North African look.
Tadelakt can be applied in one thick coat or two coats to create a more traditional texture seen in bathrooms, kitchens and living spaces throughout Moroccan homes. This style of plaster is becoming increasingly popular in the UK and, while slightly more expensive than traditional plastering, is very durable and great value for money.
No traditional Moroccan bathroom is complete with our ornate lanterns that you will be accustomed to seeing in the Riads of Marrakech. If you want a subtle Moroccan influence rather than full on pattern and colour, lanterns offer overtones of North African style without being too overpowering.
Choosing a lantern with a pattern will cast a beautiful image on your bathroom walls and will feel particularly alluring when taking a bath. With this is mind you can also splash out on scented Moroccan candles to help create the ambience that you need after a long day at work.
When it comes to redesigning bathrooms we often think about bathtubs, windows, furniture and storage, but we underestimate the power of mirrors. A cleverly placed mirror can compliment the room and make it look bigger than it is. There are some beautiful Moroccan style mirrors with hints of colour and jewels to make it the centrepiece of the room.
