Could there be a more glamorous master bath than this gorgeous suite! Every luxurious detail from the mosaic marble bathroom flooring to the chandelier hanging above the jacuzzi tub is absolutely stunning and really sets the tone for the rest of the home. This is one of those unforgettable spaces that potential buyers remember long after they leave the viewing. If you want to make a similar design impact you could easily take these bathroom shower tile ideas, or even the gorgeous panelling around the tub surround and translate it into your own home. The first place I would start is by imitating their shower tile ideas.
A couple of people have told me that you have to be careful about the material you chose for bathroom floor tiles, because the wrong type can be slippery and dangerous (especially for old folks like me). Specifically, there was a gorgeous marble tile that I really wanted to use but my builder discouraged me from it. Ever since then I have been on the hunt for a safer ceramic tile option that would give the essence of marble but with out the slippery factor. While I never did find a good faux marble options, I did stumble across several shower tile ideas featuring this beautiful beige product. I love that it is available in a variety of sizes to create cool patterns and accent designs (like they did here), but yet it is simple enough to go with nearly any accent color or decor theme that I decide on over the years.
Let me tell you, hunting down the right floor tiles for our master bathroom remodel has been quite the learning experience. I had always thought that we would use marble to accent the space, but our contractor told us that the authentic natural stone is actually quite slipper and dangerous to use on high traffic areas that will be wet. I was stunned to find out that a lot of the gorgeous shower tile ideas that I have seen online featuring the material are actually a faux marble product. Given this realization, we had to change up our design quite a bit. Rather than the traditional marble look you often see, we decided to use this gorgeous and more contemporary porcelain tile that would be safe to use on both floors and walls.
A lot of homeowners that a speak with are scared to commit to bathroom wall tiles because they feel that it is a design decision that you cannot go back from. In some aspects they are certainly correct -- tile is an expensive investment and one that is not exactly easy to remove every time you want to incorporate a new trend into the space. However, just like shower tile ideas, wall coverings can still be quite versatile if you pick the right product. For something as large as a wall, I recommend sticking with a design that is quite neutral in both color and pattern. I simple travertine tile like this is a great option or even a classic subway tile works as well.
There is nothing I love more than taking on a bathroom renovation project when the client specifically requests to do a unique and unexpected design. Classic neutral shower tile designs are certainly the bread and butter in our business, but every once in awhile you have the opportunity to create something bold and artistic. This master bathroom update was certainly one of those cases. When we first started the design process, our client brought us these bathroom tiles (that we ended up using on the floor and shower wall) and told us that they wanted to center the entire room around those. I loved that idea because they are funky and contemporary while being neutral enough in color to create a stunning and approachable design.
Check out these awesome Carolina blue wall tiles that we just installed in our entire guest bathroom! We did all of the work ourselves and could not be more pleased with how it turned out. When I saw these beautiful dusty blue glass tiles in the store, I immediately knew that I wanted to incorporate them into our new shower tile ideas. They are actually meant to be hung like subway tiles, but we thought it would be cool to do something a little bit unexpected and hang them vertically rather than horizontally. I think it actually works really well in the space, not only as shower tile but on the surrounding walls as well, because the lines draw the eye upwards and give the illusion of more height in the room.
