#1 MIXED MATERIAL

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 wood. While real wood in the bathroom is not practical, wood look tile is a beautiful 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 or elegant natural stone mosaic and you are set.

#2 TEXTURE

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.

Multitude is Daltile's latest and greatest textured tile. It comes in a wave, pinstripe, or hexagon raised pattern that seamlessly flows from one tile to the next for interrupted texture. Pick from muted, neutral colors; perfect for the bathroom.

#3 FREE-STANDING TUB

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. Or try a unique mosaic to add a little bling to the space.

#4 LIGHTING

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

Tile is stunning in any light. If your design incorporates a chandelier, we suggest a neutral matte stone or a concrete look to provide a subdued supporting role to the main focal point: your chandelier.

#5 PATTERNED TILE

Patterns are a hit in bathroom design right now. Prints on the tile generate a high contrast retro 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.

#6 DARKER COLORS

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.

A concrete-inspired tile 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.

#7 VINTAGE

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 - black and white hex, square 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 a one-inch, black and white hex.
