17 Stunning and Functional Bathroom Tile Ideas

Tile with beauty and smarts.

Tile is an oft-used bathroom material because it’s pretty to look at and tough against water, grime, and general wear and tear. Here are 17 of our favorite bathroom tile ideas that blend beauty and smarts.

1| Turn on the Red Light

The first of our bathroom tile ideas features a candy red tile accent wall.

A contemporary bathroom in black, white, and gray gets a punch of color from narrow candy red tiles.

2| Subtle Surround

Want to keep your bathroom simple and chic? Try pairing small offset joint tiles with large 13x13 tiles in the same neutral color palette.

3| The Glass Between

Give your bathing area a little privacy without blocking natural light with a glass block tile divider.

4| 50 Shades of Blue

Feeling blue? Try square tiles in different sizes but similar shades of azure, sapphire, and Persian blue.

5| Take a Seat

Add a tiled corner seat for extra relaxation and accessibility in the shower.

6| Big and Little

Small natural stones and large offset plank tiles make a visually interesting pair.

7| Chevron Meets Subway

Looking for a bathroom tile idea that will really pop? This bathroom is equally modern and classic with white subway tiles coupled with striking chevron floors (via HGTV).

8| Surface Variety

We’re obsessed with the combination of neutral large format tiles, long subway tiles, and striking cookies-n’-cream granite in this spa-inspired bathroom.

9| Faux Wood

Modern porcelain and ceramic tile now feature wood finishes like bamboo and black walnut.

10| Haute & Hexagonal

Everyone loves black and white tile, and we’d bet that you love this retro-inspired black and white hexagonal style too (via Centsational Girl).

11| Certified Organic

Bring your modern bath back to earth with organic tiling featuring leaves, flowers, and branches.

12| Pretty Powder Room

Trying to achieve that old-school powder room look? Go for vintage tile with floral details and add brass fixtures.

13| Natural Nook

Snow white river stone adds texture to small cubbies in this airy shower space (via Carla Aston Designed).

14| Walk the Plank

Raw planks of wood constitute the most unique of our bathroom tile ideas.

15| Diamonds are Forever

It seems that there are infinite ways to translate black and white in a bathroom remodel, including shiny white wall tiles in diamond shapes.

16| Adept Accent

Cover your vanity top with glass mosaic tile for tactile luxury and graphic impact.

17| Marrakech Made

When it comes to color and pattern, go big or go home. This bathroom tile idea bears a strong Moroccan influence and lively color palette.
