Beneath the Surface

The bathroom is often considered one of the more utilitarian areas of our homes. All function, no flair. Our favorite designs, however, don't sacrifice style for what's practical. The solution? Tile, of course. With its diversity of colors, patterns and personalities, this classic choice is the perfect antidote for a boring bathroom. Tile allows us to customize one-of-a-kind, indelible designs in unconventional ways. 


Neutrals & Naturals

Earth tones and neutral colors are ubiquitous in bathroom designs for their ability to soothe and instantly connect us to the elements. From terra cotta to porcelain and ceramic, utilizing tiles in this natural palette is anything but boring, and makes creating a serene atmosphere in your bathroom a walk in the park.

Bathed in Blue

Cooling, gentle, and quite apropos for such a water-centric space, blue is one of the most popular color selections for bathroom designs. Said to slow our heart rates and breathing, tiles in this soothing shade have the power to instantly relax us, setting the perfect tone for feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.

Moody & Marvelous

Rich woods, dusky color tones and subdued lighting aren’t off limits in the bathroom. In fact, some may prefer them for such a private, personal space. Tiles in darker shades with rustic textures and patinated surfaces can add tremendous character and lend a luxurious, moody ambience to the modern lavatory.
