Some of the most important things to keep in mind when considering different bathroom remodeling ideas are choosing materials that are easy to maintain, maximizing energy efficiency and focusing on brightness wherever possible.
A small space like a bathroom is a great place to try out bold colors and finishes that might not work in larger areas. We’ve rounded up 17 colorful bathroom tile ideas to show you how. Whether you want to plaster your bathroom with stripes and ombré or just make your beige a little less blah, these as will give you some inspiration to pump up your space’s style.
Also pay attention to porosity; you’ll want a more impervious tile for the floor because of exposure to water. Vinyl feels better on bare feet than ceramic tile, and it’s one of the more popular flooring choices as it’s inexpensive and practical (safe, easy to install and maintain).
Mid-century American bathrooms were in love with pattern and color. The 1940s saw suburbs filled with bubblegum-pink bathroom floors, mint-green ountertops, and even tubs, toilets and sinks in vibrant colors. The bold bathroom trend lasted into the 1970s — and many older homes have the avocado tiles to prove it.
Then, in the 1980s, we suddenly got sick of bathrooms that had something to say. Ever since then, we`ve been covering our bathrooms in safe, quiet choices such as beige, gray and plain white. A neutral bathroom isn’t all bad. But these gorgeous, graphic tile treatments make us want to kiss quiet bathrooms goodbye.
