Your bathroom should be a relaxing retreat—a place to both prepare for the day and unwind when it’s done. Whether your bath- or powder room is big or small, these beautiful tile designs will make it feel like a luxurious spa. Choose from timeless tiles such as subway and hexagon or trendy patterns like herringbone or even fish scale—each one fit for floors, walls, and showers.
Herringbone Bathroom Tub Tile
Porcelain tile in a pretty herringbone pattern surrounds this tub (from Country Living’s 2017 Lake House of the Year), giving the room a soothing, spa-like feel.
Large Hexagon Bathroom Tiles
Oversized, 8″ x 8″ cement hexagon tiles make a serious statement in this Tudor home’s bathroom.
Bathroom Penny Tile
A bold strip of blue at the bottom of this bathroom’s penny tile wall keeps things fresh and fun, and the matching mirror helps highlight the detail.
Fish Scale Tile Floor
We’re still flipping for fish scale tile (like this by Homepolish), which Elle Decor listed as a top bathroom trend last year.
Small Bathroom Tile Idea
The owner of this tiny house used white (both on the shiplap walls and on the hexagon tile floor) to make the small bathroom seem bigger.
Checkerboard Tile Alternative
If tile’s not an option, try faking it with a pattern painted on hardwood floors.
Black Hexagon Bathroom Floor Tile
A black hexagon tile floor is a sleek and sophisticated design choice that draws the eye upward to that stunning ceiling.
Master Bathroom Tile Idea
This homeowner called the tile step of turning her attic into a master bed and bath “a beast of a job.” No wonder: Between the floor and the walls, almost everything is covered—but all that work clearly paid off!
Marble Shower Tile
Marble hexagon tile in a gorgeous gray color covers the shower walls of this New York farmhouse bathroom.
Subway Tile Buffer
Subway tile separates the splashy wallpaper from the painted wood floors of this bold bathroom so it’s not too busy. You could get the same effect with large checkerboard tile as well.
Here, square marble tile looks even cleaner thanks to the contrast of the dark antique dresser against white walls.
Brick Paver Bathroom Floor
Brick pavers take the place of tile in this renovated California cabin’s bathroom. Though the material is normally used outdoors, we can’t get over how great it looks inside.
Subway Tile with Accent
The homeowners here capitalized on their bathroom’s ample light by incorporating equally cheery white tile: hexagon for the floor and subway tile with eye-catching green accent tile on the walls.
Patterned Black-and-White Tile
When it comes to patterns, sometimes more is more! When paired with green toile wallpaper, the bathroom in this Tennessee farmhouse achieves a maximalist style that, according to Etsy’s 2019 trend report, is so in right now.
Black Herringbone Floor Tile
At first glance, you might only notice the classic subway tiles on the walls (and of course, that vintage claw-foot tub). But the real showstopper in this bathroom is the stunning black tile floor, laid in a herringbone pattern.
