Your bathroom may not be the most exciting part of your home, but it can be. New tile trends, new styles are coming out every day that can make your bathroom a statement piece that you can be proud of. Here are our favorite new bathroom tile ideas and trends that can make your bathroom striking—and make you want to spend time in your updated bath.
Subway tiles installed in a chevron pattern are all the rage. It’s easy to see why: it looks great and is terrifically different and unique. Add another color tile into the pattern for a bold statement that draws the eye of your guests—and keeps it.
If you love the tile you chose for your bathroom, set your sights beyond the floor or around the shower. Cover your walls with a fun mosaic tile or with a neutral rectangle tile that coordinates with your bathroom décor. In a larger bathroom, cover the walls around your shower and bath tub.
If you want to add height to your bathroom, consider having your tile installed vertically instead of horizontally. A vertical tile can make a small bathroom feel larger, or give a unique look to your shower and tub. This style can also be used in your kitchen for a distinctive look.
Look of wood
We’d probably see more wood floors and countertops in our bathrooms if it wasn’t for that pesky risk of water damage. With new tile styles, you can now have the look of wood without fear of a water stain. Use tile that looks like wood with variegated colors for an accent wall around your shower, or make it look like you were crazy enough to have wood floors installed in your bathroom. Choose a color that coordinates with the rest of your décor at a local tile store—or ask for more tile options that’ll make your bathroom a showstopper.
