These bathrooms look so amazing, you’d want Mutina tiles in yours too!

For many people, the bathroom is where we can release our inhibitions and let loose, a sanctuary behind closed doors. For this reason, this enclosed space is where we might be more daring in our design decisions, choosing surfacing materials we might not necessarily select for common spaces such as the living or dining room. If you’re looking for tiles that stand out from the crowd, designs that will set your bathroom or powder room apart from the rest of your home, then look no further than Italian tile brand Mutina. Known for their powerhouse collaborations with international artists, designers and architects, Mutina doesn’t follow trends –  the company creates them with tile designs that never fail to impress. You only need to look at the gorgeous bathrooms below to agree.

Home: HDB apartment
Designer: Charlotte’s Carpentry
Mutina collection used: Mutina Phenomenon (wall)

Tucked under the stairs of this HDB maisonette, the powder room of this home is like a gem of a space waiting to be discovered. The small and intimate space is big on the bohemian vibe with its modern tribal accessories such as a drum-like wooden side table and handwoven wall hanging. The Mutina Phenomenon tiles in Honeycomb, by Tokujin Yoshioka, on one wall deliver another element of organic texture to enhance the outdoors feel, with their unique randomised patterning highlighted by the light from the pendant lamp. The choice of brass fixtures and a mirror with gold border add a finishing touch of refinement to this precious nook.

Mutina collection used: Mutina Lane (walls) and Mutina Mews (flooring)

A scattering of colour spreads across the walls of this HDB bathroom by Studio Fortyfour, looking at once soothing with its base hue of dove grey, and also energetic with its dynamic pattern. These are the Mutina Lane tiles by designers Barber & Osgerby in Poly Grey. The collection derives its designs from the streets and buildings of London, where the designers are based. Outside the bathroom, the Poly White mix of the same collection adorns the middle section of the wall as a visual link to the interiors. On the floor of both spaces are another of the designers’ collections for Mutina. The Mews tiles in Ink also depict a sense of movement with their subtle variations in colour.

Lighting is as much a part of the design of this HDB bathroom as the Mutina Rombini tiles on the feature wall in Red. On their own, the Rombini tiles by the Bouroullec brothers are striking enough with their three-dimensional accordion-like form. Add to that the magic ingredient of light and the result is amplified. Illumination on both sides of the mirror, as well as underneath the wall-hung cabinets, create dramatic contrasts of light and shadow. The light fixtures themselves are also part of the design, complementing the linear forms of the Rombini tiles.

Mutina collection used: Mutina Azulej and Mutina Tex (walls)

When it comes to Mutina tiles, a little goes a long way, as the various bathrooms in this landed home demonstrate. Tiles from the Mutina Tex and Azulej collections are strategically used to give each of them a lively and distinct character within the otherwise grey canvas. In the first two photos, Azulej by Patricia Urquiola in Estrela Nero cover the floor and are applied on the backsplash and shower area for a cohesive look to the space. In another bathroom, Azulej tiles in Combination Grigio, a patchwork of contrasting and complementary patterns, flow down from the ceiling to the floor of the shower area in a vertical ribbon that follows the trajectory of falling water. The last photo shows Mutina Tex tiles by Raw Edges, in Tex Yellow, applied on both walls of the shower area, from a contained horizontally swathe on one wall to seemingly overflow to the next wall.
