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.
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.
One of a home’s biggest selling points today is energy savings. Water shortages and rising utility bills make this a priority for home buyers. Energy efficiency is also big from the environmental standpoint. When planning your bathroom remodel, these items maximize energy efficiency : Tankless water heaters, Low flow toilets and faucets, LED lighting instead of traditional incandescent, Radiant floor heating, Insulated windows.
A border of tile lets you add your personal style without breaking your budget. It also can be a way to make a bold statement without making a huge investment (and also one that can be changed to match the taste of future buyers). Add a strip of mosaic tile or colored glass along the top of subway-tile wainscoting or let it stand alone against a painted wall to warm up the room.
