Are you getting ready to do a bathroom remodel? Your tile choices need to pass the test of not only time, but style. Whether you’ve been dreaming of subway tile, mosaic tile, or something entirely different, consider these bathroom tile design ideas that will make your bathroom awesome.
You probably don’t want to have a run-of-the-mill bathroom. Let your personality and sense of style shine when making choices on tile shower design.
After all, you’ll be spending a lot of time in your shower in the coming years and decades. Make sure it’s a pleasant place to be with these 8 design ideas that will make your bathroom awesome.
Also consider these five reasons to use a design/build firm for your bathroom remodel.
- Create mosaic shower walls
If you’re nuts for the look of mosaic tiles, consider mosaic tile for more than just an accent in your shower. Use mosaic tiles over the entirety of your shower walls (and even the ceiling over the shower). Then, have a glass shower door installed so the look will always be on display.
- Combine glass and subway tile
Subway tile is a look that will stand the test of time. But to spruce it up a bit, consider interspersing glass tiles in a fun or complimentary color. Go with one color, or many. Then tie the look together by using the glass tile to surround your shower.
- Go natural
Stone tiles can be a great way to not only bring a touch of nature into your bathroom, but can provide a spa-like look. Consider shower walls made of slate, marble, or natural stone. If you love the look of polished stones at your feet, consider using pebble tile for your shower floor.
- Create niches
Throw away the toiletry organizer that hangs over your showerhead. When doing your tile shower design, work in a few recessed cubbies where you can place your shampoos, soaps, and other shower necessities. While you’re at it, add a shower bench to your design.
- Plan for accessibility
When doing a bathroom remodel, plan for the future. Will you be aging along with your bathroom? Consider accessibility features such as a barrier-free shower. This means having a tile floor flush with the rest of your bathroom floor, instead of a tub to step into.

- Go monochromatic
For a truly modern, spa-like look, consider a monochromatic look for your tile shower design. Choose one color, then pick a variety of tile sizes or types to mix it up. Also consider a monochromatic look for your entire bathroom for a truly clean look.
- Tile the floor
Tiles aren’t just for showers. You’ll likely want to choose tile flooring to go in your new bathroom or bathroom remodel. Choose tiles that go well with what you’ve chosen for your shower.
Of course, making your bathroom floor awesome includes using tiles that are easy to take care of. Check out porcelain or glazed tiles, which are easy to clean and care for. Avoid limestone and other porous natural stones, which need to be sealed regularly or they’ll stain over time.
You’ll also want to consider tiles that are less slippery than others, such as those with textured surfaces, matte finishes, or glazes containing sand. Also consider choosing smaller tiles, which means more grout surrounding them to act as grip.
