          How best to fit patchwork tiles into the bathroom interior, regardless of style? There are several interesting ways that professionals most often use when laying tiles:

          1. Inserts. Decorative elements are randomly scattered on a plain surface of the wall - patchwork tiles. The pattern on each tile and the shade of color may differ from each other, but it is important to preserve the stylistic harmony of the ceramic coating.
          2. Interesting accent. Against the background of a monochromatic ceramic coating, an object in the bathroom or part of the surface stands out with bright patchwork tiles. For example, the partial lining of the bathtub, the wall of the shower stall, the countertop near the sink or the space above it looks great. A patchwork pattern laid out in a narrow horizontal or vertical stripe on the wall effectively attracts attention and visually increases the area of ​​a small bathroom.
