Well, starting with the tiles can be a great way to achieve the revamp you’re looking for.  Here are a few tiling ideas that may help you with this project!

In case you’re looking to make a serious decor statement, you should consider large hexagon bathroom tiles for your walls and floor. The tiles can measure up to 8x8, but they are simple to install.

Although oversized tiles are not traditionally used in bathroom tiling, they are part of a new trend, especially for smaller bathrooms. This makes them feel much more alive and interesting!

It’s not often you get to see a bold strip of blue on a bathroom wall but it can be the perfect accent for a flat all-white background. The penny tile is designed to achieve this, making it an easy way to decorate your bathroom into something subtle, but beautiful; bold, yet simple.

Checkerboard Tile

A rather simple design that is a lot more flexible than it seems. You can use white with any other color you want, but you can also mix and match other colors to create bold combinations. If you’re looking for something a little more subtle though, it’s recommended to combine white with another soft color. Simple and effective!

Now you can bring this experience at home with smaller and black hexagon shaped tiles for your bathroom floor. Complement the floor with a stunning ceiling and cozy lighting to achieve the best possible effect. This design is simple but offers a more elegant option for any homeowner.

Marble comes with a gorgeous gray color that can give any bathroom a distinct and elegant look. But instead of having it all over the bathroom floor, try to focus mostly on the shower. The gray marble on the shower wall complemented with white floor tiling should do the trick.

Subway tiles are beautiful and they have started to make their way into residential homes. But it’s only recently that many homeowners are looking at subway tiles as possible options for bathrooms.

Well, you can achieve the perfect look with the right accents. The cheery white tiles with simple plant pots as accents should do the trick. The tiles will also reflect light around the room making it seem bigger and bigger with the help of a large mirror.

This is not entirely something new but you can add a simple twist to it and make the whole idea amazing. Start off with white subway tiles to cover bathroom walls. Try to complement the walls with smaller white hexagon shaped tiles on the floors.

Although most bathrooms will probably have white tiles, this arrangement is far more exciting and varied.
