Sometimes all it takes to give your bathroom a completely different look is a simple tile upgrade
What is the most popular tile for bathrooms?
Without a doubt, the most popular type of tiles to use in your bathroom are subway tiles. There is just something about them that makes them so functional. And, keep in mind, that when we say subway tiles we don’t just mean the boring old white subway tiles. On the contrary. You have so many different options when it comes to putting them up. First of all, of course, is the color. You can experiment with so many different colors, which are going to give your bathroom a completely different look. The second one is the arrangement. Experiment with shapes and positions of the subway tiles. Whether you choose a chevron pattern for example, or you choose to mismatch them by putting them up in different directions, you will give your bath so much depth!
Subway tiles can be so versatile
What kind of tile should I use in a small bathroom?
If your bathroom is small the best option you have is to go with tiles from the floor all the way up to the ceiling. This will make the room appear much bigger. Another focal illusion you can use of course is to use lighter colors. It is no secret that lighter colors will make any room appear bigger and airier. And, finally, go for tiles with a glossy finish. They reflect light, which will, once again, make the room appear more spacious.
Which color is best for bathroom tiles?
As we already said, for smaller bathrooms try to use lighter colors, which are going to open up the room and make it feel more airy. On the other hand, if you are lucky and own a large bathroom then you have nothing to worry about. You can go crazy about tiles in different colors and you can even mix and match those colors. And, naturally, there are a few trends which are going to be taking over the interior design world in 2021. It is up to you whether you want to follow them or not.

Make a statement with a bit of color
If you are looking for a way to spice up your bathroom then a colorful accent wall might be just the way to do it. Many people opt for simpler, more neutral colors when it comes to their bathroom. That, however, shouldn’t always be the case. The photo below proves that adding some color to your walls, which is also complimented with tiles in geometric shapes, can give your bathroom lots of depth. What’s more, this wall will be the main focal point, which is going to anchor the whole design.

Separate the shower with a different set of tiles
If you are looking for some separation between the shower, WC and bath, then using different tiles can be just what you need to do. That way the shower will become the main focal point of the room. What’s more, the room will appear to have even more space because the difference in the tiling will give it more depth. You can use tiles in a different color or even experiment with tiles in different shape or material. As we already said, mixing and matching will be the thing to do in 2021.
This bathroom is so dreamy
Tiles with patterns
If you are not afraid to experiment, please try this trend. Patterned tiles are so beautiful when used right. Look, we are not saying that you should go overboard and have your whole bathroom covered with patterned tiles. However, you can pick a specific area, which is going to serve as a focal point. For example, you can cover the floor with patterned tiles while keeping the walls neutral. Another option is to separate an area with colorful tiles like the shower or the bath.
This is such a clever way to use patterned tiles
Create beach house vibes with mosaic tiles
Mosaic tiles are so interesting to look at. What’s more, the good news is they can be used in any color, shape and design you want. So, whether you decide to use them to separate an area, as a focal point, or as a little accent to an already tiled wall or floor, it is impossible to go wrong with them.
This design gives us such beach house vibes
Create coziness with mock wood tiles
Installing wood in your bathroom is not a good idea since wood expands when it comes to constant contact with water. But we live in the 21st century, however, and people have come up with a way to still have wood in their baths. With mock wood tiles you can create so much coziness in your bathroom. The best option is probably to cover your floor with them. But, if you are feeling creative, you can always try adding them to a wall.
Mock wood tiles are the perfect option if you want to give yourself that spa feeling

Trust us, the results will be unmatched. What’s more, this is a great option if you are working on a budget, since putting up a wallpaper can be much cheaper than tiling.
