Tile by Style: Passport to a Moroccan Bathroom
Maybe it’s the allure of its sun-kissed cities, its winding streets, bustling bazaars, or lush riads, but something about Morocco encapsulates the romance of glittering desert grandeur. Beloved for its eclectic heritage and striking artistry, Morocco’s richly saturated color palette and intricate designs are beautifully replicated in bathrooms.
Vibrant and welcoming, Moroccan design style can transform your bathroom into your own personal oasis. Read on for our best design ideas to bring Moroccan flair to your bathroom with tile.
Add Intricate Detail with Handpainted Tile
One way to add Moroccan flavor to your bathroom is with Handpainted Tile. Inspired by the intricate geometric mosaics Morocco is known for, our Handpainted Tile showcases timeless motifs like medallions and stars in beautiful colorways–and adds a major design impact when applied to a bathroom backsplash or shower.
