If you’re looking to make more of a statement piece, feature walls are a tried and tested way to bring depth and character to a bathroom. Using decorative porcelain tiles you can dress up any wall as a focal point to create the space you desire. Be as creative as you want to be and, for a real wow factor, keep the rest of the décor relatively neutral.
