Modern Bathroom Shower Tile Ideas
Many factors come into play when choosing the perfect shower tile for your bathroom interior design. Slip resistance, curved or straight shower benches and even the mineral density of your shower water can play an important role in choosing the type of shower tiles. Check out the below shower tiles that’ll give you the idea to get what you want.
#1. Reflective Sloped Shower
Do you opt for a hot and steamy shower? Do you just love the cold color palette? Along with the blue and purple shades, you’ll get a picturesque mosaic portrait right there in the middle of your shower space. Moreover, when dealing with a sloped ceiling like the one shown above, it is best to use smaller tiles for a more delicate and on-point slope.
#2. Walking On River Pebbles
Don’t you just love the spring and summer river trips? Do you wait throughout the whole winter season until spring finally arrives so that you can hop on the first trip to the river bank? Don’t you just enjoy the feeling of pebbles brushing against your bare feet because it makes you feel so euphoric you become addicted to it? Do the small pebbles remind you of the games you used to play with your best friend back in the old days? Get inspired by your most favorite moments and use that pebble pattern in order to create a unique theme for your shower tile idea and make it easier for yourself to reminisce what are probably the best moments of your life.
#3. You Got Me In Frames
Here is an idea for those of you who find it almost impossible to end up with a design entitled with harmony and unity because they do not know how to choose a tile that is suitable for both floors and walls. With the idea shown above, you can kiss that problem goodbye because it suggests that you use the same type of tile you already used for the shower walls as a frame for the different complementary tiles used on the shower floors. This also works if the main tile of your choice doesn’t offer good slip resistance like the one you chose for the floors.
#4. Glass & Textured Shower
Regarding the latest trends in the interior design world these days, adding a different type of tile as the featured focal point of the bathroom is what everybody is trying to perfect these days. For example, in the photo above the designer employed the Legestone tile in order to achieve the stacked rock look for the shower walls with the rough face of the stone facing out. That technique is used when you know that the kind of water you have would not be dense enough to build up on the wall and stain its surface.
#5. A Comfy VIP Shower Seat
When you want to include a shower seating zone in your bathroom, you should keep in mind how it would feel when your naked body actually touches that surface in an attempt for a more relaxing experience. For example, a soft slab feels so much better than small mosaic bits on your bare skin. Also, the curved edges like a radius edge or a bull nose would not feel hard against the back of your legs. After all, a design would not be successful if it didn’t offer you a comfortable experience.
#6. Built-In Creative Curvy Seat
The shape of the design you have in mind for your shower zone plays a significant role while picking out the qualified tiles for the job. Big tiles feel easy on the eyes and add a sense of simplicity to your composition which works for straight and regular shapes. However, curves and arcs require a completely different approach. It is best to use smaller tiles when it comes to curved shapes because of the smaller the tile, the more accurate result you get.
#7. Bigger Is Not Better
We are always told, “ Go big or go home!”. However, in this case going big might ruin our one and only chance of ever getting that picturesque shower tile design idea we are looking for. That is true especially when working with glass tiles. They are very difficult to work with that you even feel like you just set the game mode on “HARD”. Rise up to the challenge by simply choosing smaller glass tiles that won’t simply get moisture trapped behind them and turn your attempt in getting a great shower look so awful just after a few uses.
#8. Small Bathroom Solutions
If you are doomed with a small bathroom for life and you feel like your creative interior designer juices are frozen for the moment because the terrible news you just received about the size of the shower space you wanted to turn out so great, then this is your lucky day. Like every other problem, there comes a solution to salvage you from the whole situation. For this major danger, we recommend you go with one kind of tile for the entire bathroom because that is proven to make it seem to look and feel larger that what it really is. Problem Solved!
#9. Marble Makes Miracles
For some of us busy bees, we never get the chance to enjoy the smallest things in our daily lives like a hot beverage in the morning or a soothing bath in the afternoon. With the shower tile demonstrated above, you can reflect your busy lifestyle because the marble out does itself with the help of the hexagonal shapes to form what looks like a bee hive. And what could possibly more busy than a bumble bee?
#10. Let’s Meet Halfway
The bathroom tile is cut halfway through the walls in order to ensure it would not be slippery when it gets wet. Now that’s the kind of functional shower tile we are talking about. This one is an example of classic white stone tiles that would work well for any taste.
