Tiles are a standard of bathroom design, and the possibilities for how to utilize them are unlimited. This year is seeing loads of different tile trends appear that provide just about each design style, from minimalist to maximalist. Discover here some designs to inspire your next bathroom improvement.

Patterned Tile

Gone are the days of tile floors mixing into the background of a room. In 2019, you’ll see the reemergence of patterned tiles, perhaps reflective of this year’s renewed focus on artisanship and craftsmanship.

Honeycomb Tiles

If 2019 could have a shape, it might just be honeycomb. Designers are getting geometric with their tiles, with honeycomb (aka hexagon) shapes appearing in tiled flooring and walls. This bathroom from Laurel & Wolf features gray floor tiles with navy borders, which echo the navy blue wall.

Color Patterns

Patterns painted on tiles aren’t the only way to excite with tile. Designers are piecing together intricate designs using a variety of colorful, geometric tiles meant to capture the eye upon first glance.

Espresso Tones

Though color will certainly be trending this year, so will earthier tones such as chocolate brown — a sound option for those who prefer a more neutral palette. In this home, the floor tiles are a deep brown that adds dimension to the neutral space. You can also expect matte finishes to compete with glossy this year.

Long, Narrow Subway Tile

If the honeycomb tile trend is any proof, this year will be all about typical tile shapes. Instead of the classic subway tile, this year, the long and narrow tile will appear in bathrooms as a sleek alternative.

Fish Scale Tile

The fish scale trend first emerged in 2016, but it’s still reigning strong into 2019 with fashionable bathrooms like this one. Fish scale tiles add an element of dimension and offer a softer look for the homeowner who wants to avoid a boxy look.

Vertical Tile

When you’ve tired of horizontal subway tile, the only place to go is — up! Vertical tiles can be staggered for an unexpected, modern aesthetic that can visually expand a room. This particular bathroom uses varying shades of gray to capture visitors’ attention.

Colorful Tile

Naturally, 2019 is all about green. But just about every color is appearing in tiles this year as a bright, happy bathroom trend for color-lovers. In this bathroom, vivid green is paired with more subdued natural elements (like the wood sink and window) for a balance of colorful and carefree style.
