Mix up your bathroom design with different materials. There are many combinations that can form a solid design foundation without becoming overbearing. Wood and glass look incredible together. Or consider marble and encaustic. (Yes, real wood in the bathroom is not practical. This is where tile that looks like wood is perfect option.)

From classic hardwood to rustic weathered planks, our wood look tile portfolio has grown to offer a large variety of choices. Add to that a gorgeous glass, eye-catching encaustic, or elegant natural stone mosaic and you are set.

Texture on the wall is a hot trend. Tile is the best way to accomplish the look. Whether a raised geometric shape or rustic, split face stone, texture will add richness to the space that is difficult to achieve in other ways. The shower is the number one place to put textured tile as it invokes a luxurious, spa feel.

Mythology is one of Daltile's newest textured tile options. It comes in a variety of raised patterns that effortlessly add touchable texture.

Simply provide a sample of the color or give us the Pantone color code, select your size & texture, and we'll make the tile for you. It's just that easy!


Elegant, free-standing tubs are in high demand. From vintage footed to sleek Scandinavian types, these tubs give the bathroom a resort ambiance.

Free-standing tubs with wall-mounted faucets are perfect companions to a tiled feature wall. Large-format tile in a stone look or sleek concrete look is on-trend. (Bookmatched slab is sure to WOW!) Or try a unique mosaic to add a little bling to the space.

Upscale Lighting

Another leading trend is unique lighting. Chandeliers or sconces over the vanity or tub set the tone for a spectacular, upscale bathroom.

Tile is stunning in any light. If your design incorporates extraordinary lighting, we suggest a neutral-color stone or tile to provide a subdued supporting role so your lighting remains the main focal point.

Patterns are a hit in bathroom design right now and generate a high contrast look that still exudes fresh style. Or create patterns like herringbone or checkerboard with your tile for an eye-catching design.

Subway tile makes creating your own unique pattern effortless. With a size that is easy to work with and countless colors from which to choose, the only limit is your imagination.


If your budget allows, take it to the next level by choosing opulent natural stone subway tile.


Wood look tile is another gorgeous option for patterning. It adds personality without overwhelming the room.



Richer colors, on the whole, are in vogue. And the darker the color, the more neutral it becomes. Look for dark green, purple, and blue making an appearance in bathroom design-especially the powder room.

Natural stone-inspired porcelain slab in a dark color is an alluring option. Darker wood look tones or beautiful fabric-inspired looks in darker colors are other exquisite alternatives. Whether on the walls or floor, dark tile enriches the bathroom space.

Vintage Vibe

Vintage motif has been mainstream for several years but has been growing in popularity exponentially over the last couple of years. While tile has been around for hundreds of years, many of its original styles - encaustic tile, black and white hex, glossy ceramic, Turkish or Moroccan mosaic shapes - are prominent again today. 

Bathroom Tile Ideas
Due to the success of vintage tile, Subway tile has been getting an update. It is now available in multiple colors and materials (such as marble and glass).
