Bathroom Tile Trends
Bathrooms are the spaces where moisture is always present which makes tile one of the most sensible materials to use on walls, floors, and ceilings. Today’s focus is on trends in bathroom tile, the ones that are popping up in contemporary bathroom designs.
One growing trend in bathroom floors is the use of large scale motifs in the form of encaustic cement tile. With this look the floor takes the spotlight and the wall tile plays a background role. Patterns in black and white are timeless, but colorful palettes are also available, the patterns range from simple to exotic.
Another trend in bathroom tile is the statement wall, one where the tile rises up to the ceiling and not just the few inches to protect the wall from water that splashes from the faucet. Floating vanities enhance this contemporary style and allow a glimpse at the same subtle chevron pattern that continues on the floor. Mixing metal sheens in the form of sleek nickel pulls and a brass sconce also modernizes this bathroom space.
Geometric patterns have been popular for several years, but today’s fresh looks are more artistic, going beyond the basic hexagon or basket weave patterns. Colors are bold, angles are asymmetrical, and with the newer patterns comes the wow factor.
Most prevalent among bathroom tile trends is the one that embraces the organic patterns present in nature. Wood look porcelain tile is available in hundreds of styles from subtle to bold in patterns that mimic hardwood but offer the benefits of tile. Seamless shower doors allow the beauty of the tile to be appreciated from all angles.
