The surfaces of the walls and gears are only the background for a powerful and diverse decor, which are replete with olive interiors. In addition to pastel tones, the woody colors (in various manifestations) shows well (in various manifestations).

  • Modern style With regard to ceramic tiles, it is impossible to be considered as something single and monolithic. More recently dominated minimalism comes from the stage, and no longer be sure to observe strict lines. But all the more important features of the last versions of the tile are its extravagancy and umployment. If you manage to create an unexpected shape or organize an ensemble, which causes admiration, is perceived as an unexpected – then it is necessary to act. It is important that the tile is now not limited to and ceramics – in a modern key it can be glass, metal, cork and so on.

Fully admissible ornaments with a vegetable or geometric plot, And ideally, they should not differ from stylistics characteristic of historical antiquity. In some cases, you can use tiles with inclusions that imitate gilding. With sufficient area of ​​the bathroom and the availability of free money, you can even order a whole bulk panel in the Greek key.
