The right bathroom tile can turn a room reserved for function into one worth coveting. Some of our favorite trends even defy how we typically think of tile. We’re seeing bathroom vanity trends incorporating beautiful tile backsplashes, and creative placement of three-dimensional varieties to direct your eyes to all the right places.
Don’t limit your bathroom improvements to simple upgrades like a new shower curtain, or trying out some bathroom vanity storage ideas. When you’re ready to make a change, swap out boring tile for these trends that can actually transform your bathroom into a room that will wow.
Find inspiration from the coastal countries of Spain, Morocco, and Portugal and instantly bring an exotic, worldly feel to your home. Mediterranean style tile comes in many different forms, but one thing they all have in common is the ability to add a unique element to any room. One of our favorite Mediterranean tiles, and one that works perfectly with many current bathroom trends is arabesque tile. Also referred to as lantern tile, this curvy shaped tile is very popular in Morocco and can create a beautiful bathroom backsplash or accent wall.
2. Colorful Club Glass
Another noteworthy tile trend is colorful club glass. You can find a variety of colorful club glass options within Willow Lane Cabinetry’s Cristezza Collection. This style creates a hypnotizing pattern by pairing different shapes and designs together. Like arabesque tile, you’ll also see this tile used with bathroom vanity trends that include a backsplash. Colorful club glass tile can create an intricate pattern when staggered, making it a popular choice for backsplashes or accent walls.
Metallic tile will transform your bathroom much more than any new shower curtain ever could. Have you ever been to a spa with shimmering tile that mesmerizes you the moment you look at it? You can achieve that same Zen-like effect by tapping into the metallic tile trend. Add glamour and glitz with glass mosaic tile that features touches of aluminum, copper, or silver foil.
4. Three-Dimensional Tile
Want to really attract eyes in one general area? Make a statement with a raised pattern. Whether you want to highlight your dreamy freestanding tub or your new bathroom vanity, use three-dimensional tile to steer attention towards the room’s best feature. Since the 3-D texture lends visual interest, stick with a monochromatic color scheme. You want to make a statement, but not overwhelm.
5. Heated Tile
One of our favorite bathroom tile trends has absolutely nothing to do with looks. Heated tile is an affordable luxury that takes the chill out of your flooring from underneath the surface. Radiant floor heating systems go beneath your flooring, to deliver heat from the bottom up. While it is not extremely expensive or difficult to install in-floor heating, it does need to be put in before your tile, or hardwood floors. That being said, you should save this new addition for when you are ready to replace your flooring as well.
