Tha bathroom is probably the least stylish and design inspired room in almost every american house. As tile is often the most used material in the bathroom, it’s really important to choose the right one in an easy way to kick up your bathroom’s style. Take a look at these ideas and see how top designers create lovely combinations with diferent materials for your bathroom.
1. Graphic Shower
Designer Sarah Richardson is famous for mixing patterns in unexpected ways — but she takes a less-is-more approach in this dreamy spa bath where the room’s big punch is provided by alternating bands of watery blue and green glass tile on the shower’s accent wall. Keeping the more modern touch small helps it blend seamlessly with the otherwise traditional bathroom.
2. Marble Tub
Designer Mark Williams makes the slipper tub the star of this luxurious bathroom by tucking it into a tile-covered arch beneath an oversized Palladian window. Larger marble tiles surround the window while smaller marble subway tiles line the arch. To complete the traditional look, Mark chose a marble and black granite basketweave tiles for the bathroom’s floor.
3. The Floor
Although you might mistake the herringbone floors in this posh bathroom for wood or even a painted detail, it’s actually marble that designer Joni Spear had cut into 4-inch-wide planks then laid in a specific order to maximize the color contrast between different areas of the stone.
4. Creative Bathroom
This modern and uber-hip small bathroom, designed by Brian Patrick Flynn, is full of creative ideas. From the graphic pattern on the door, created by attaching cut wood planks, to the mosaic tile accent wall that Brian added to both brighten up the vanity area and make the walls feel taller.
5. An Infinity Space
Designer Kriste Michelini uses tile to create a division between the wet and dry areas of the bathroom. This unique combinations of tile and various tile shapes in the same marble material creates a sense of infinite space in your bathroom.
6. Attention to details
Designer Jessica Helgerson believes the little tiling details can make or break a space. If there isn’t a clean way to end the tiling, it can be often taken all the way up the wall. And even in a bathroom details are often very important, when it comes to interior designs.
7. Spa-like effect
Designer Cortney Bishop decided to create a light and airy waterfall-like atmosphere. To accomplish this, she has the glass tiles installed vertically and keeps the grout neutral. Bishop says, “As a general rule, less is more. Using one tile throughout a space gives a cleaner, more consistent look.”
