For those looking to make a statement in their bathroom, our first recommendation for utilizing shower tile is dedicating one wall for a bold, decorative tile. This will create a space that captures your attention as soon as you enter your bathroom. Check out some of our favorite shower tile statement walls.
Matching Shower Niche
If you are loving the idea of a statement wall in your shower, but want to create a cohesive mood throughout the space with even more pattern, we suggest utilizing decorative tile in your shower niche. This is also a cost effective way of adding more patterned tile as shower niches are typically pretty small and only require a few pieces of tile to cover. Below is our favorite example of continuing a patterned tile collection throughout the shower without being too busy.
A great option for homeowners who like a little bit of patterned tile but still want to keep a bathroom simplistic is adding a bordered accent feature in your shower! This is another way of creating a focal point in the shower that us both minimal and attention grabbing. The best part is-you can choose how big or small you want the centerpiece to be!
The Tile Stripe
We always want to include ideas for clients who are hesitant about adding a patterned tile to their home or for client’s who have a smaller budget for tile. Instead of covering your wall with a decorative tile, just add a few rows of tile to add a little pattern strip to your shower. This will create the perfect contrast of neutral and patterned tiles.
As always we would love to hear from you! How you would make a Shower Envy moment?
