Moroccan, mediterranean inspired interiors have arrived. There’s something to really love about the burnt orange introduction of terracotta in a bathroom.

Exuding warmth and depth, terracotta is the biggest underdog of the colour world in interiors, set to make headway in our interiors this year.

From tonal combinations, to pairing green and terracotta, these 27 terracotta bathroom ideas are the perfect inspiration to help you successfully introduce this gorgeous colour into your bathroom this year.

27 Terracotta Bathroom Ideas

1.Patterned Terracotta Tiles

A bold colour demands a bold pattern, and these patterned terracotta tiles are a perfect way to introduce colour and interest into a bathroom.

Terracotta floor tiles remain one of the best ways to draw attention as you enter a bathroom, instantly lifting the walls and providing something really special about the space.

Keep the walls neutral or white to allow for the terracotta in the tiles to take centre stage.

2. Red Terracotta Wall Paint

Dare for something a bit different in your bathroom? Go in at the reddest end of the terracotta spectrum with bold, lustrous red terracotta walls.

An attention seeking colour that’s a great way to incorporate terracotta into a bathroom.

3. Terracotta Parquet Floor

Slightly distressed, terracotta floor tiles are in, and in a big way. They add a rustic flair to your bathroom whilst keeping the space feeling light, and neutral.

Now, this isn’t the first time you’ll see the terracotta tones with green, there’s something pretty special about this colour combination in a home.

Introduce other subtle, well placed touches of terracotta for a warm feel, think textiles, pampas grass and natural wood accessories.

4. Faded Terracotta Basin

Forget the walls and floor, a simple update of a basin is a beautiful way to introduce terracotta to your bathroom.

Top it on a rustic wooden cabinet or piece of wood for a handmade, and beautifully rustic sink vanity.

5. Terracotta Matt Bricks Floor To Wall

Take the all or nothing approach… The continuation of terracotta bricks from the floor to wall is a great way to create a continued flow through the bathroom.

It’s important to bear in mind the practicality of this type of tile as they can be difficult to keep clean, so always try and opt for a sealed version.

6. Light & Dark Terracotta Brick Style Tiles

Keep things visually exciting by opting for two tonal terracotta bricks in a bathroom.

The combination of the light and dark terracotta tones creates the most beautiful backdrop. Neutral, rustic and incredibly endearing.

It’s those green tones again. Seriously, terracotta and green are the colour combination of 2023.

Not sure about incorporating terracotta into your bathroom just yet? Play around with testing it with terracotta textiles such as with towels, bath mats and bath robes.
