If there's one simple detail that transforms the style of any bathroom, it's the tiles. Their shape, size, material, and design instantly infuse the room with a certain character. Subway tile reads classic while switching it up to be vertical gives it a modern edge. Square ceramic tiles give a bit of a retro vibe, especially in a nostalgic colorway. Large slabs of marble or slate provide an understated elegance. Mixing and matching bathroom tile designs within a single space can be even more impactful, so get creative if you're planning on giving your bathroom a face-lift.

Designing sans colour can be a timeless approach. Vertical white tile pops against the black walls, fixtures, and tile lining the floor.
Not all tiles need be square or rectangular. These black hexagon tiles make a subtle statement and contrast beautifully against the classic square tiles in the shower.
Combining contrasting tiles with significant size differences can help to create transitional spaces.
Make a traditional bathroom feel modern with painterly tiles in unique shapes and colours.
This unique bathroom wallpaper print really takes centre stage, so Katherine Carter went for a neutral hue for the floor tiles in a geometric shape to give it a little lift.
Does it get much better than this? Subway tile on the walls with a patterned tile on the floor. The reason this works is the subdued monochrome colour palette of black and white. We also love the gold hardware for that extra pop.
This stunning dark bathroom has so many features we want to call out. The large dark navy tiles in the shower really complement the lighter blue tone of the wall paint, and the lighter floor tile pattern really lifts the room.
This is a modern update for the white subway tile. We love the way they've laid out the tile on the side of the bath to break up the monotony and bring a creative flair. The flooring appears fairly simple until you look closer and see it's tiny geometric shapes.
We can't imagine a chicer bathroom than this. The sink and feature wall is rose quartz then you step inside a shower that is floor to wall white square tiles and striking gold hardware. That's how we want to start and end every day.
