- Matte tiles

Floor tiles that runs right into the shower offer a clean, functional style, which works particularly well in a smaller space.

Using sultry monotones in your bathroom can add real depth and drama.

This look is at its best with artificial light, making it a perfect solution for a bathroom with little natural light.

Look for fashionable geometric designs of bathroom tile that have a nostalgic character bringing period style into the room and creating a unique finish that creates a real statement. Patterned tiles can be used to add interesting detail to an otherwise simple room, or make a bold statement when used to cover an entire wall.
Natural materials will stand the test of time. Natural stone, slate and other earthy materials are all great options for bathroom tiles that will work for most designs. They are complemented beautifully with other natural materials in the bathroom, oak or reclaimed wood bath panels or vanity, and seagrass storage units.
