Looking to work black and white floor tiles into your game plan? Check out these 5 ideas and make your winning move.

Planning a bathroom can often resemble a game of chess—carefully moving your pieces around, considering your strategy and working yourself into winning position.

For a bathroom worthy of a king or queen, it pays to think deeply about your flooring. Vinyl and laminate are good low cost options but for the perfect finish, tiles are truly regal.

To help inspire your next move, we’ve pulled together 5 of our favourite black and white tiles.

1. Chessboard

A classic flooring style, the chessboard or chequerboard look is perfect for traditional style bathrooms, adding a genuine sense of drama. With a simple, repeating pattern, it’s not hard to see why it’s so popular. If you’d like to mix things up a bit, why not consider using marble effect or large format tiles?

3. Luxurious marble

Wonderfully cool and smooth to the touch, marble is one of the most luxurious bathroom materials you can choose. However, as you might expect, luxury doesn’t come cheap and you’d be expected to pay a king’s ransom for the genuine article.

But there is good news… You can easily replicate the look with a variety of marble effect black and white floor tiles adding elegance to your bathroom.

4. Magical mosaic

One way of adding intrigue to your flooring is to use mosaics. These black and white floor tiles are great for “zoning” your bathroom—partitioning your space into distinct areas, around your bath, toilet, basin or shower.

5. Wood effect

Furniture aside, wood can be problematic when used in bathrooms, due to the high moisture content and risk of splashes. It’s much easier to use a low maintenance type of flooring, like these wood effect black and white floor tiles. With a weathered appearance, they are perfect for rustic or even industrial style bathrooms.
