5 Unique Tile Ideas For Your Bathroom Remodel
Unique and creative tiles offer the perfect finish for your bathroom remodel. Tiles are durable, easy to clean and can bring an old bathroom back to life with a more modern look. Because tiles can last a long time, it’s important to make the right choice when remodeling the bathroom. Looking for something different and unique for your new bathroom? These 5 tile ideas will add an inspiring flair, reflecting your distinctive taste and style.
Gone are the days of plain old square tiles, 2017 bathroom tiles are all about hexagons, circles, elongated rectangles and any other polygon to add subtle interest and patterns without prints. Different colored geometric tiles can even create the effect of 3-dimensional patterns on walls as a feature. One of the most popular features of geometric tiles is their versatility – they can be subtle, neutral, and pared back, or bright and bold, gaining center stage for your bathroom. Perfect for flooring and walls in both large and small sizes, geometrically shaped tiles are a popular bathroom remodel option for 2017.
Colorful and Variegated Patterned Tiles
With cookie-cutter remodels and boring neutrals on the way out, uniquely colored and patterned tiles can add a much-needed splash of creativity to your bathroom remodel. With 2017 bringing a surge in popularity for artisan styles and unique design, colorful and patterned tiles are perfect to add a touch of character to your new bathroom. Mismatched patterns create a stunning artsy boho theme, and break up the monotony of repetitive patterns. Patterned tiles aren’t the only way to add interest to your bathroom walls and floors. A mix of different colored and shaped tiles can create a stunning pattern for your bathroom surfaces in a different, more subtle way.
Fish Scale Tiles
Fish scale tiles are a big trend for both bathroom remodels and kitchen remodels in 2017. Emulating the overlapping scales of a fish, fish scale tiles add eye-catching softness and movement to walls and floors without the need for heavy patterns. Sharp lines and angles can make a bathroom look cold and boxy, but the smooth, undulating effect of fish scale tiles offers a calming and delicate effect to your bathroom remodel.
Want to splash out with some color or pattern but don’t want it to be overwhelming? Showcase your style with ‘feature tiles’ to add a small section of patterned or brightly colored tiles to your design. Even laying your tiles differently can add a different effect or feature that adds a unique touch to your new bathroom upgrade.
Colorful and Iridescent Finishes
A different color, glaze or finish effect is perfect when you want your bathroom tiles to stand out. Colorful tiles can cover your walls or floor for a powerful and unique effect, with many designers opting for full floor designs in 2017 as a distinctive contrast to wall patterns and color. Iridescent and glazed finishes are also popular, adding a richness and warmth to bathrooms and a truly characteristic effect.
Your bathroom doesn’t have to be boring! Spice up your 2017 bathroom remodel with a stunning and unique tile choice to refresh and rejuvenate your home.
