Tile is frequently used in bathrooms for many reasons. It’s aesthetically pleasing, it reflects light, it’s durable, it’s easy to clean and it’s a simple way to freshen up the space. And options abound for bathroom tile ideas, from material to implementation. Tile halfway up the wall to create wainscoting, use classic white subway tile, tile the entire wall, create a 4-6 inch border or combine multiple style elements using whichever material you like. Using tile is more expensive than painting, however, so if you’re on a budget either choose an iteration that doesn’t use a lot of it or just use paint. Make sure the proper additive is mixed in with your paint color in order to keep it from getting mildewy and if you’re using tile, look for stain-resistant grout (more expensive but worth the extra cost). White and off-white are the most popular bathroom color ideas and neutral colors also help make the space feel calm and fresh. Choosing a monochromatic color palette, where you base the whole color scheme off of one main color, is another popular option and will make the space feel bigger.
Adding an accent tile is a great way to update a bathroom. Choose one wall to be the focal point for your room. For bathrooms, the back wall tends to be the best. Add a colored mosaic or patterned tile. In this room we used a green mosaic tile to evoke nature and to compliment the wood finish on the vanity.
Lighting is an overlooked bathroom feature, but it’s among the most important. The best part of adding lighting to your shower area is that it can be inexpensive. When thinking about how and where to add lighting, consider which spots you want to highlight and what mood you want to set. For example, you might try a wash of light on a beautifully tiled wall. Some showerheads even have built-in LED lights.
A water closet is a welcome addition in any bathroom. It adds privacy and makes it possible for more than one person to use the room. The water closet in this bathroom design was created from an oversized linen closet. It’s a better use of the space and doubles the capacity of the room.
