Bathroom tiles are beautiful, functional, and support many design possibilities to enhance the look of your bathroom. Porcelain tiles are a popular choice for bathrooms, as they are water-resistant, can withstand heavy foot traffic, and are easy to clean. Not to mention it is suitable for radiant in-floor heat for cooler mornings.
Here are the best trends in porcelain tiles for your bathroom:
Large Format Tile
Large-format porcelain tiles are great for both floors and walls! When we say large, we are referring to any tiles larger than 18×18. At Ceramic Tile Center in Northern Nevada we carry tiles as large as 24 x 48. Traditional wall tiles tended to be 8×10 or 8×12, but just as floor tiles are getting bigger, wall tiles are also. Choosing larger tiles for your walls or floor can make your space appear larger. If you want to be a little creative with your large format tiles, you can mix in smaller tiles as well, adding dimension.
Concrete Looking Tile
While people tend to view concrete as cold-looking, in bathrooms, they can appear warm and contemporary. Concrete tiles look great when complemented with other tiles. For example, one wall with concrete tile and the adjacent wall with subway tile can create a clean and modern look.
Distressed and Reclaimed Tile
The distressed and reclaimed look has been popular in home design style, so it’s no surprise that they are a trending porcelain tile option. You can find these distressed, reclaimed, metallic looks in concrete tiles and wood plank tiles (both of which have also made this list!) These tiles look stunning as large format tiles where you can see the details and textures.
Brick Subway Tiles
Brick subway tiles are a trend that will never die – they’re a classic for a reason! Brick subway tiles offer a timeless look and lend themselves to various style trends that may come and go, making them a smart choice for your bathroom. If you want to be a little creative, opt for a slightly out-of-the-ordinary color, like sage green or a stone blue, or have fun with your grout or texture.
All White Tile
Always flattering, there’s everything to love about white bathroom tiles. Regardless of your style, you can count on white tiles to bring a clean and bright feel to your bathroom. One of the best parts of white tile is choosing from so many different interior design styles.
Wood Plank Tile
Wood plank tiles have risen in popularity, and for great reason. They look stunning, especially in bathrooms! They are versatile, with the ability to compliment many different styles, bringing a homey look to your bathroom. They can be distressed, reclaimed, white-washed, or natural-inspired.
It’s all in the details! Many people overlook areas of the bathroom that could add significant detailing through tiling. For example, storage areas in the shower for shampoo and conditioner or shower benches could benefit from some creative tiling, adding the extra creative flair to your bathroom!
