When it comes to adding a Moroccan element to your home, the bathroom is a brilliant place to start. You’ll have the freedom to add a luxurious look to the room with exciting colours, accessories, patterns and of course, mosaic bathroom tiles, that are a classic feature of Moroccan interiors. From bright blues and yellows to earthy hues, the choice of colours all conjure up images of opulent riads and the exotic souks – giving you endless ways to style your bathroom with a Moroccan theme.
To create a seamless look, try matching mosaic floor tiles with wall accents such as traditional trays or a wall mirror that will offer timeless beauty, while making a decorative statement. Alternatively, if you’re feeling creative, why not try your hand at upcycling an old mirror using leftover mosaic bathroom tiles? This is a great way to personalise the space and deliver a coordinated aesthetic too. Complement tile colours with towels and other bathroom accessories like candles and lanterns for a cohesive and unique finish.
With their ornate patterns and pretty colours, Moroccan-style tiles can be a brilliant way to deliver an eye-catching feature for functional kitchen splashbacks.

Moroccan decor often strives to bring the outdoors in, so thinking how this principle can be applied to your kitchen design is key. Think wicker baskets, terracotta pottery filled with exotic plants, metal lanterns and wooden accents to create a relaxing and warm heart of the home.
