The bathroom is one of the few parts of the home that can stand on its own without any decor. This space has more subdued aesthetics that are practical as they are attractive. The simplest way to add a touch of glamor to any bathroom is through a fun tile design.
Home Remodeling Center shares five fun tile designs to try on your next bath remodeling project.
1. Multi-Shaped Tiles
Installing tiles of different shapes and sizes is a design trend that never goes out of style. This design establishes a contrasting effect that also adds some much-needed floor detail on an otherwise bare space.
2. Ceiling-to-Floor Tile Stripes
Another simple way to add some detail and interest to the bathroom is to add “strips” of different colored tile on the walls. The most popular combination is yellow strips contrasting a neutral-tiled wall. Not only does it add a bit of whimsy to an otherwise plain-looking bathroom, but the strips help define the borders of the bathroom and can serve as a handy guide on where to place new bathroom fixtures.
3. Same Floors and Walls
As a contrast to the multi-shaped design trend, floors with the same tile shape, size and color establishes uniformity. It’s a good choice for your next bath remodeling project as it has a nifty effect of making the space appear larger and more defined than it really is.
4. Establish a Focal Wall
It’s not necessary to replace the large swathes of wall tile to rework the look of the bathroom. Establishing a focal wall – an area of the bathroom that has contrasting tiles – has the same attractive effect. A good combination is a predominantly neutral-colored wall with a darker or lighter colored focal wall and helps establish the visual center of the bath space.
5. Different Shades
Installing tiles of the same size and shape but with different shades of the same color establishes a neat watercolor effect and a tone-on-tone patchwork that’s striking to look at. Lighter colors of different shades work best along with certain darker colors such as blue, gray and green tones.
