9 Trending Bathroom Tile Ideas (2023)
What Bathroom Tile Ideas Are Hot In 2023?
Not only is tile one of the largest material purchases in a bathroom remodeling project, it also consumes most of the project’s duration in terms of labor as well. To help you make the best tile purchase and to safeguard your investment, we’ve curated a list of the most popular tile ideas happening across the U.S. right now. We’ve made sure that these tile ideas won’t be going out of style anytime soon.
1) Herringbone Tile Pattern
Herringbone gets its name due to its resemblance to the bones of the Herring fish. It’s a classic, timeless look that gives the impression of elegance and sophistication. It’s sure to give any bathroom, large or small, a feeling of luxury. Accomplishing this pattern will require a rectangular, elongated tile.
2) Hexagonal Tiles
The hexagon is a more complex shape than your typical bathroom tile. This makes it a great choice for those who wish to deviate from the norm, while also going with a safe choice. Hexagonal tile has found itself as a favorite among bathroom designers.
3) Patterned Tile
Patterned tile is a phenomenal way to breathe some personality into your space. These tiles will consist of either ceramic or porcelain, and will have a pattern printed on them prior to their final glazing. Patterned tile has been around for millennia, and isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.
4) Wood-Look Porcelain Tile
Porcelain tile formed to give the appearance of wood has risen in popularity to an all-time high. These tiles are textured on their surface to even give the feel of wood grain. While you can’t use actual wood in wet spaces such as your bathroom, you can certainly use wood-look porcelain tiles.
5) Geometric Tile
Geometric tile has a surface that protrudes, instead of sitting perfectly flat. This tile will be either ceramic or porcelain, and is a great option for those that seek an aesthetic that excites.
6) Pillowed Subway Tile
The term pillowed refers to the resemblance to pillows that these tiles take. The tiles protrude outwards, creating a fluffed pillow effect. Pillowed subway tiles are skyrocketing in popularity, as people crave the subway tile appearance but also wish to stand out from the crowd.
7) Low-Pattern Tiles That Blend
Sometimes an aesthetic goal may be one of tranquility, especially in the bathroom. Using tiles that feature low activity along with a small grout line, such as 1/16th of an inch, can give an appearance of a blended look that relaxes the mind.
8) Darker Tiles
In a world of house-flipper grey and sanitary white, opting for a tile selection that is on the darker side can truly do wonders. Using darker tiles is logical given you use your bathroom upon waking up and when preparing for bed, both light-sensitive times.
9) Large Format Tiles
We are seeing many of our clients desire larger format tiles. Selecting large format tiles can even keep the price of labor down given how quickly they can be installed and grouted. Opting for large format tiles can make a bathroom feel more congruent and seamless.
It’s Getting Late (Let’s Conclude)
We covered 9 popular tile ideas that we have personally seen and used. The only tile concept that we would encourage homeowners from selecting is plain white subway tiles. Everyone across the nation is currently installing plain subway tiles in both their kitchen and bathrooms, and we predict that in several years time this style will become over-saturated and thus obsolete. We hope that these ideas were helpful, and we wish you the best of luck with your remodeling project. Below you can find even more articles by us that are sure to increase your remodeling knowledge.
