Your bathroom is an area you see practically every morning and several times during the day as well, so it’s very important that it looks clean, neat and welcoming. People are most likely to spend time in a place that is beautiful and comfortable to them and that’s exactly what your bathroom should be like for you. If you’re not yet at the stage where you can admire and enjoy your bathroom, that’s fine, but before you plan a bank-breaking makeover, consider one thing: tile. Beautiful bathroom tiles can make the difference between a comfortable and uncomfortable bathroom.
Creative Tiles Collection for Your Bathroom
One of the most commonly used design materials in just about any bathroom is tile, why is that? For one, tile is easily found in hardware stores, easily customised and comes in a wide variety of colours, cuts and designs. With this sort of accessibility, any homeowner can add a personal touch to their bathrooms, making it unique to their household. Finding the right design or combining the right colours sounds much easier than it actually is, but fear not- we’ve compiled a list of 20 different bathroom tile ideas to help you dazzle up your bath space.
1. Faded Bathroom Tile Design for Showers
This bathroom tile idea is perfect for the setting it is placed in. The light brown colour looks natural on the tile and brightens up the shower. The added design of slanting the square tiles to make diamonds is a beautiful touch that keeps it from looking too plain or boring.
2. Chequered Design for Showers
A great way to change up your design is changing up the tile size. The contrast between the large tiles and smaller tiles is intriguing. It’s also important to make sure that the smaller tile’s colors compliment the larger tiles’; the connection really brings the whole design together.
3. All-White Design for Smaller Bathrooms
This bathroom tile design is simple but interesting- the brown floor changes things a little and allows for the smaller tiles on the wall to reflect its colour, while the white walls open up the bathroom space. Light reflects perfectly on white surfaces, this makes white tiles perfect for smaller bathrooms because it makes the space look larger, the reverse is true for black and darker coloured tiles.
4. Alternating Brown Bathroom Tile Design
Besides changing the size and colour of tiles, you can also turn them to make different patterns. Better yet, implement all three styles into one design just like this example does.
5. Soft Blue Tile Design
Picking the right tile colour to suit you and fit your bathroom is just as important as the patterns you use- you can even choose more than one colour. The best results come from picking colours that complement each other. The best way to ensure the colours you pick work well together is to pick one colour, then lighter hues of it, this tends to work rather well with tile designs.
6. Colour-Blocking Design for Showers
Light browns, whites, and sleek blacks work very well with showers, but one tile size or design can often just make it look uninteresting. This bathroom shower tile design uses both tile size variation and color hue patterning. The two stripes of smaller tiles running along the shower wall draw the eye toward the space between it, then to the shelves patterned in the same style. The main focus is the smaller tiles but the larger ones give them the perfect background to be displayed on. A shower design using only one of either tile would look too busy or too plain, however mixing them like this is attention grabbing and aesthetically pleasing.
7. White with Black Trim Design for the Whole Bathroom
Everyone knows that black and white go well with anything, but did you know they go well together? This bathroom tile decor idea is a testament to that: the walls are white throughout but the tile size changes outside each border of the black tile stripes. The idea is very simple and only two colours are used, and yet the design is very sleek and classic.
8. Bold and Simple Design
You can use a bold tile colour in your bathroom to add a ‘wow!’ factor to any bathroom and pair it with a simple coloured tile creates the perfect contrast and keeps the bolder colour from overtaking the whole design. It’s like colour blocking for bathroom designs.
9. Sleek Black and White Bathroom Tiles
This tile design has a clean and sleek look to it. The dark tiles makes the space look cozy while the white tiles brighten the room, but it’s the contrast that both colours create that makes the design look so appealing. As always, the change of tile size and alternating of colours brings the entire bathroom into a new level.
10. Half-and-Half Paint and Tile Design
So far we’ve given you tile ideas that cover all the walls and even the floor of your bathroom, but another great idea is to half-and-half the design by bringing paint into the mix. In this design, the blue paint can be seen almost as a one big tile, the matte finish instead of the shine adds a homey feel to the walls while the black and white tiles add the classic bathroom look.
11. Simple Brown Tile Shower Design
Shower space is the perfect place to tile especially if you have transparent glass doors. A simple bathroom tile design like this only needs one-colour tile and white accents to bring it together.
12. Mosaic Bathroom Tiles Idea
The smaller, rectangular bathroom tiles are perfect for incorporating various colours but it can quickly become too busy. To avoid this, use bigger tiles to offset the complicated mix and placement of the smaller ones.
13. Grey, White and Black Design
Grey and white go wonderfully well together, just like black and white do. Using this tile idea means using same size tiles, but the spacing and shows of white between each tile keep it from looking dense. The floor design uses white which could have washed out the sink, tub and toilet but the black tiles contrast it perfectly.
14. Tile Mural Design
Whoever said tiles had to cover the whole wall? This design is particularly unique because it uses tiles in a unique way: like wall art, instead of the wall itself. It resembles a quilt with its different tile sizes, patterns and varying colours. It’s the perfect offset for a one-colour bathroom.
15. Calming Blue Design
This design is another example of how well changing up tile sizes works. Remember: contrast means a lot when designing your bathroom. It adds variety, attracts the eye, and depending on the colour and placement, it brightens up the space as well.
16. Shimmering Gold Design
Make your bathroom look extraordinary by adding some shimmering gold into your tile patterns. Tiles are already known to shine but with gold as a special ingredient, your bathroom will be practically glowing. The colour as well as the delicate design adds an air of luxury that’s usually hard to achieve in a bathroom.
17. White and Chrome Bathrrom Tiles
The great thing about this bathroom tile idea is that it utilises only accents and accessories that are places in the bathroom itself to offset the all white walls and floor. The chrome tub and sinks give off a clean and sophisticated look and black is always a classy colour to place with white.
18. Brown Tile Band Design
Brown bathroom tile is used quite a bit with showers and floors, but this design uses tiles smaller than the ones it’s surrounded by, but larger than the size usually used in these designs. This slightly larger tile makes the colours within it much more visible.
19. Rectangular Tile Design
Bathroom tiles are most often square and there’s a lot that can be done with this kind of tiles as you have seen in the ideas previously listed. Rectangular tiles add a unique touch, giving you more space to be creative with your design.
20. Stylish and Sleek Design
Black, grey and white are classic colours not only when it comes to clothes, but with bathrooms as well. Grey floors are a great idea and the textured look it has makes it stand out. The black vanity and chair compliments both the walls and the floor. The three colours just go great together.
Hope you have enjoyed the above bathroom tiles and got the idea you needed to make your bathroom look amazing!
