Picking out the tile for your bathroom isn’t as easy as it used to be. Today, there are so many options that are available that it can almost become extremely overwhelming. You’re no longer just picking a design that you like — you have to think about the durability, the textures, the print, and so much more. While it can be exciting to start designing the aesthetic layout of your bathroom, you may not know where to begin. In this blog post, we will be discussing some of the top tile designs to give your bathroom a more modern and luxurious feel. After all, you do spend a good chunk of your life in this room, so why not enjoy it! 

 

Graphic Tile 

Graphic tiles can be the perfect statement that your space needs. Whether you decide to put them on the floor or on one wall as a statement, they truly can brighten up the entire area. Graphic tiles allow you to be the artist of your own space. There are so many patterns and colors to choose from, they can make any room feel brand new again. As of now, we’re seeing a lot of ceramic tiles with patterned finishes. 

 

Matte Finishes

We used to be obsessed with glossy finishes — it was very early 2000s of us. However, matte finishes have continued to follow us and can turn any space into a modern meca. They’re soft but powerful aesthetic allows them to be a statement piece without being too overwhelming to the eye. Matte tiles are also great because they don’t show smudges and watermarks as easily as glossy tiles do, making them great for bathrooms that see a lot of use. If you’re looking for a more subtle way to add a modern twist to your space, matte tiles can add that edgy and earthy tone. 

 

Neutral Colored Tile 

If you’re looking for a way to add a modern twist to your bathroom but you’re not wanting to add color, neutral-colored tiles can still give your bathroom that element. Lately, contemporary and modern designs have been showcasing neutral colors such as grey and cream. Grey and beige have become very popular and have even adopted the name “greige”, don’t blame us; we didn’t come up with this. Since your bathroom is usually a place where you can unwind, these colors add a calming element due to their easy-to-look-at aspect. You can add these colors all over the bathroom. In order to create a space that doesn’t become lifeless, you can layer different shades, add textures, shapes, and various finishes to bring everything together in a new and exciting way. 

 

Another neutral colored tile we’re seeing become extremely popular is all white everything. If you’re looking to brighten up space, white tile can really do that. Although white may seem like a very basic color, there are many shades and patterns that you can work with.

 

Dimensional Tiles 

Just as we mentioned before, neutral pallets are one of the best ways to add a pop of modernization to your space if color isn’t your thing. If you’re still looking for a bolder way to add to your space, but you don’t want to add color, adding a tile with a demenional aspect to it can be the perfect happy medium you’re looking for. Any geometric pattern can work, and this year we’ve been seeing hexagon patterns being featured. This shape is perfect for shower floors, statement walls, and any other place in your bathroom that you want to add a bit of pizzazz to. These tiles can come in all shapes, sizes, colors, and textures making the possibilities truly endless. Typically, geometric patterns are seen in many types of spas, which can give your bathroom at home the relaxing energy that you’re looking for. 

 

Stone Patterned Tile 

Stone patterned tile, specifically marble patterned tile can give your bathroom the ultimate modern yet classic look. Marble has always been a high-end material that has been popular for its neutral yet glamorous style, and now it’s easier than ever to create this aesthetic in your own home. Marble also has a variety of patterns that it comes in, so it can be used to decorate bathrooms of all sizes. Typically we see larger patterns of marble working exceptionally well in master or larger scale bathrooms. You can even add marble to a single wall in a smaller bathroom, giving you all the benefits from marble, without having to cover your entire space with it. While marble was once considered to be expensive, you can now get the marble pattern in a porcelain material that resembles the stone almost identically. So if you’re on a budget, but still want to create a beautifully modern look, marble stone patterned tile could be the perfect alternative for you. 

 

Textured Finishes 

If you want to add variation, color depth, and surface interest to your bathroom adding textured tile to a section of your space can add the perfect modern finish. Adding textured tile can also be incredibly personalized. You can find tile patterns that give a pop of color or simply add a different element to the space. You can also design them to be as bold or subtle as you want them to be. There are truly endless combinations that you can utilize to create a one-of-a-kind space that looks more like art than tile. 

 

Metallic Finishes 

Over the past couple of years, metallic finishes have become extremely trendy. From high fashion fabrics to tile, this trend can literally become the shining star in your bathroom. While it’s more of a statement piece and not as practical, it can give your home the perfect stylized finish to it. Wow your guests by decorating your walls with metallic tile; the shiny and reflective finish is perfect if your bathroom has a window or any natural light that comes through. If you’re going for a modern look, this is definitely a bold way to showcase your keen eye for interior design. This is a new trend, but we do expect to see it continue to climb its way to the top.
