Turn classic subway tiles on their side by choosing them in dark green glass and laying them lengthwise. Give a plain bathroom a sassy twist by tiling a half-wall in a saturated color such as fire-glazed orchid. Make a boring white bathroom exciting by laying tiles in a herringbone pattern and layering in a touch of color. Triangular tiles laid in a 3D cube pattern trick the eye into seeing more depth and keep a tile half-wall from looking monolithic. Give a modern bathroom a touch of vintage softness with shell-shaped deco tiles. A curvy vintage mirror, sconces and brass fixtures finish the classic look. Floor-to-ceiling patterned tile paired with terra cotta-colored grout creates a spa-like escape that pairs well with Turkish cotton towels and a relaxing bath.
Mid-century American bathrooms were in love with pattern and color. The 1940s saw suburbs filled with bubblegum-pink bathroom floors, mint-green countertops, and even tubs, toilets and sinks in vibrant colors. The bold bathroom trend lasted into the 1970s — and many older homes have the avocado tiles to prove it. Then, in the 1980s, we suddenly got sick of bathrooms that had something to say. Ever since then, we‘ve been covering our bathrooms in safe, quiet choices such as beige, gray and plain white. A neutral bathroom is not all bad. But these gorgeous, graphic tile treatments make us want to kiss quiet bathrooms goodbye.
There‘s a reason tile is often the material of choice in the bathroom: it reflects light, it‘s durable, it‘s easy to clean and it freshens up the space. We‘ve assembled a list of bathroom tile ideas to help you get started. Tile is a good way to make the space look polished and to revamp a bathroom without doing a major overhaul. Keep in mind that the grout between tiles can become grimy if it‘s not cleaned properly, and regular maintenance is important in preserving an aesthetic that looks fresh and not grungy.
