There’s a reason tile is often the material of choice in the bathroom: it reflects light, it’s durable, it’s easy to clean and freshens up the space. We’ve assembled a list of bathroom tile ideas to help you get started.

Tile is a good way to make the space look polished and to revamp a bathroom without doing a major overhaul. Keep in mind that the grout between tiles can become grimy if it’s not cleaned properly and regular maintenance is important in preserving an aesthetic that looks fresh and not grungy.

Tile is more expensive than paint so the amount of material and the complexity of your design will likely depend on budget. Options range from minimal use in a border, for example, to maximum use in floor-to-ceiling executions. And each implementation, of course, can be done in different materials be it in a classic subway tile or multi-colored mosaics.

It’s good to think about resale value when making changes to a bathroom, especially because white and off-white are the most popular color schemes in that room. That said, your bathroom is a space that all of your guests will likely see at some point so if you want to make a statement this is the place to do it. Think about it the same way you would your kitchen backsplash: you want it to be timeless, clean and not turn off potential buyers.

You could allow tile to make a statement and cover all four walls or use it to create pseudo wainscotting and paint the top half of the wall the color of your choice. Here are five general bathroom tile ideas to apply to your space.
