How to Style Bathroom Tile

How to Style Bathroom Tile

Make the most of your renovation by trying these ways to style bathroom tile. The bathroom is a great place to have a little extra fun with tile and décor. You spend a lot of time there, so put in the extra energy to make it a stunning space to get ready in the morning, or a relaxing space to wind down after a long day.

Try these ideas to style your bathroom tile:

Let your tile stand out.

We love the way the white walls and vanity let the tile stand out in this bathroom. Another key concept is to get a nice glass door to ensure that your tile is always visible to admire. For this idea, we like to include a bright pop of color in the tile – it’s all about having fun!

Use beautiful storage.

Add beautiful storage containers to keep your space clean and eye-catching, just like your tile. If you’re like most of us, you have plenty of small items in your bathroom. Avoid clutter with storage options that you’ll want to use every day. We love these little handmade jars made by Willful – how beautiful does that look with a sleek black Moroccan Fish Scale backsplash?

Find matching color accents.

With over 100 glaze colors to choose from we imagine that you’ll fall in love with the hue of your ceramic tile. Take your color choice to the next level by incorporating matching accents throughout your bathroom. It’s all in the details.

Layer floor tile with a statement rug.

The bathroom is an excellent place to use floor tile as it can hold up against all the water and wear that a bathroom endures. Give your floor some extra love by layering on a statement rug. We’re fans of the juxtaposition between soft and textured fabrics against sleek and smooth tile.

Go with a theme.

Having a tough time bringing all of your elements together? Go with a theme for your bathroom. It’s amazing how much easier it is to make creative decisions when you settle on a concept. Some theme ideas include tropical, spa, retro, or like in the image below - nautical!

Deck the shelves with knick-knacks.

Adding a few sweet knick-knacks can make a world of a difference in a space. Choose something to go along with your theme or add items that mean something special to you. We adore this example of adding a succulent and some stacked rocks to enhance the spa-like vibe of the 1017E Sea Mist Moroccan Fish Scales.

It’s all about the towels.

If you don’t have a lot of room to style your bathroom, consider focusing on what matters most: the towels! Towels can be a fun way to bring out your bathroom tile color, add a contrasting color, or play with a new pattern.
