Bathroom Tiles and the Best Bathroom Design Ideas

Q: What are my options when it comes to bathroom tiles and designs?

A: Your bathroom tile sets the tone for the space. Creating a mood with tile can lend a unique character to your bathroom. What’s more, today you aren’t limited by colors, shapes, or even finishes when it comes to your options—which might make it all the more exciting (or stressful) to make your choice. Check out these tips on bathroom tiles and some great design ideas!

Limited No Longer

Bathrooms are no longer limited to plain white, square shapes, and glazed ceramic finishes on tiles. Today, there are several hundreds of different styles, colors, sizes, and materials when it comes to finding that perfect bathroom tile.

Tiles are available in a variety of sizes, so customizing your bathroom is so easy with ACo! Piecing them together can create a unique, striking, and eye-catching design either on the floor or the wall of your bathroom. Your imagination is the only limitation when it comes to bathroom design. A creative tile design can help you have the bathroom of your dreams.

Ceramic is the preferred material for bathroom floor tile because it is durable, offers resistance to dampness, and is non-slippery to walk on and use when wet. Stains are also easily removed! Of course, this does not mean that other materials aren’t user-friendly or durable, so check with the salesperson on durability and life best suited for your new bathroom!

Solid Color Tiles: In your bathroom, this can help create a warm ambiance. You can use contrasting tile borders to the floor tile or you can create a pattern using two or more differently colored tiles. The visual impact will be very interesting!

  • Different Tile Sizes: Try using different sizes of tiles on your floors and walls or lay them diagonally to create unique patterns.
  • Contrasting Grout Color: By using contrasting grout color with ceramic floor tiles, it creates a unique effect that only your bathroom will have!
  • Using Your Favorite Color: If your favorite color is blue, consider having some blue decorative tiles on the walls or use different shapes/textures added for a personal touch to your bathroom!
  • Contemporary, Chic Look: Choose bold and bright colors with graphics against plain backgrounds. Have contemporary and sleek styled accessories added and enjoy the chic look!
  • Turn Up the Love Feel: Add floral tiles in pastels or use a hand-painted sink to add a romantic feel to your bathroom.
  • The Mediterranean Look: A mix of terracotta tiles and Spanish hand-painted tiles for the floors will create the trendy Mediterranean look. You’ll travel to another country every time you step into your bathroom!

When redesigning, it’s important to pay attention to the color of the tile because colors really do affect your mood. Warm colors, like yellow or peach, make your bathroom feel cozy. Using neutral colors, like beige or white, make the area look large and reflect color. Cool colors, like blues, greens, and violets, create a serene and relaxing vibe.

When shopping for your tiles, we advise you to have fun, choose tiles that are suit your individual tastes, and are practical.
