Here are the trends that made the top of our list.

Modern bathroom feature wall with blue glass one by two inch mosaic tile.


Mix up your bathroom design with different materials. Wood and glass work great together. Or try marble and wood. There are all sorts of combinations that can form a solid design foundation without becoming overbearing.

Wood-look tile is a great option for the bathroom where wood might be a no-no. Our wood portfolio has grown a lot in the last year so there's plenty to choose from. Add to that a gorgeous glass or elegant natural stone mosaic and you're set.


A little texture on the wall is a hot trend. Tile is a great way to get it. Whether it's a raised geometric shape or rustic, split face stone, texture will add a richness to the space you can't get any other way. The shower is the number one place to put textured tile. It lends a spa feel and makes your bathroom luxurious.

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.
Spacious bathroom with tall ceilings accentuated by metallic-look linear tile arranged in a vertical pattern. Soaker tub and double vanity in curvy shapes.


Elegant, free-standing tubs of all sorts are hot. Whether you're talking about a vintage version or a sleek Scandinavian type, these tubs make the bathroom special. Wall-mounted faucets are on-trend too.

Both free-standing tubs and wall-mounted faucets are perfect companions to a feature wall covered in tile. 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.


Another hot trend is unique lighting. Chandeliers over the tub and sconces over the vanity. The right lighting sets the tone for an upscale bathroom.

Bathroom Tile Ideas
Tile looks great in any light, but if you're going for something worthy of your chandelier, go with a neutral matte stone or a concrete look that won't steal the show from your chandelier.
Close up of large shower with bench. Floor, bench, and walls covered with two by two inch ceramic tiles in cream with intermittent squares of maroon tiles.


Patterns of all kinds are a hit in bathroom design right now. Prints on the tile give you a high contrast retro look that still exudes fresh style. Or create patterns like herringbone or checkerboard with your tile for a design worth paying attention to.

Subway tile is easy to create patterns with as the size is easy to work with and come in so many colors. Try an updated subway look with natural stone.

Wood-look planks are another great option for patterning. It won't overwhelm the room and adds personality.


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 a good option or go with the darker wood-look tones or beautiful fabric-inspired looks in darker colors. Whether it's on the walls or on the floor, dark tile enriches the bathroom space.


Vintage style has been growing as a favorite style in the last couple of years and that continues into today. Vintage tile is of particular interest this year. Tile has been around for many years and many of the styles that were original favorites are still around-think black and white hex, 4 x 4 glossy finish ceramic, or Turkish or Moroccan mosaic shapes. 

Bathroom Tile Ideas
Subway has been getting an update because of the popularity of vintage tile. You can now get it in a one-inch, black and white hex.
Now you're ready to start designing a bathroom that's perfect for you. Take a look at both cutting-edge and traditional tiles for your bathroom remodel today at Daltile.
