Ever since vintage style decor started becoming popular again about ten years ago, I have always wanted to have a classic subway tile bathroom in my home. Although I do love classic vintage decor, I am not a super traditional person so when I made this dream a reality I knew that I wanted to use some slightly unconventional bathroom tile ideas. These gorgeous ocean blue glass subway tiles seemed like the perfect way to blend my love of vintage things with my desire to be unique and unexpected. Even better, the tiles design actually cost much less than it looks because it is not exactly a super popular shade for the average person.
I have looked at dozens and dozens of subway tile bathroom photo galleries trying to find the perfect inspiration picture to give to our contractor. I wanted to find the perfect mix of contemporary and vintage (exactly what this material embodies), and specifically something with a subway tile shower. After a long search, this particular photo became my top favorite because the decorator combined the beauty of subway tile with the slightly more edgy and modern flare of glass, metal, and natural stone. I love the backsplash tile ideas in this space because the continuation of the geometric pattern ties in the shower, while bringing in a new a unique texture.
While I was searching for inspiration on how to incorporate a subway tile bathroom into our house, I found these beautiful pictures of a white and Wedgwood blue master in the exactly style that I am looking for. Subway tile patterns are so incredibly geometric, so I wanted something just a bit different that would break up the linear design. Mixing and matching tile types like this designer did in the shower, is the absolute perfect way to make things a bit more whimsical and "outside the box." I also love how the grout between the white bathroom tiles design perfectly matches the deep grey floor tile and mirror frame in order to create a nice contrast while keeping the overall look cohesive.
I love this fun twist on a classic subway tile bathroom because it makes it a bit more on trend with today's hottest marble looks. By breaking up the monotony of geometric white bathroom wall tiles with a diamond marble pattern, the designer created both visual interest as well as brought in a fantastic accent material to tie in with the marble seat of the luxurious shower bench. I really want to attempt to replicate this look in our master bathroom walk in shower but I am a bit intimidated by the scale of the pattern. My husband and I prefer to do the work on our home by ourselves, but these shower tile ideas may necessitate bringing in a professional.
There is something so charming about a subway tile bathroom, it makes you want to lounge in a clawfoot tub with a great novel and cup of tea (or glass of wine!) When we first looked at this home, I absolutely fell in love with the white subway tile bathroom (with original tiles no less!) and knew that we had finally found the right place for us. Once we moved in, we wanted to make a few small updates just to make it our own and to give it a slightly more modern feel. First on the list was bringing in a few fun bathroom color ideas that would really make the beautiful tile work pop. This rich moss green tied in the glorious trees outside the arched window and make the entire space feel cozy and natural.
If you are in search of a timeless look that will attract potential home buyers even years from now, I would definitely suggest looking into a subway tile bathroom. Most people can't decide if bathroom shower tile ideas utilizing this classic material look vintage or modern, but either way it is popular and timeless. This particular room is a great example of how to install the product in the right way. Always go with a totally white subway tile bathroom shower in order to stay in the neutral family and allow homeowners to blend it with their own decorative accents. This helps them to visualize how the home would look as their own, no matter what their particular style may be.
