These types of bathroom tiles make each space look larger and more inviting. You can create one accent wall or give the whole bathroom a makeover if you like. Make sure that you choose a very light color for the tile as dark colors can make this pattern look overwhelming.

9. Pebble Tiles

Pebbled tiles give your bathroom a beach-like feel and make it look rustic too. They go well with plain light tiles as the pebbles create a textural contrast with the plain surface. You can also go for floor pebble tiles to give your feet a little massage while using the bathroom.

8. Chevron Tiles

Chevron pattern is in rage these days and just adding some chevron tiles to one wall of the bathroom can change the whole look. You can either go for a single-color chevron pattern or a dual-colored pattern to create a different look. Just make sure that you install your showerheads carefully as wrong placement can break the pattern.

7. Faux Wooden Tile

While you may not like to put real wooden floors in the bathroom for obvious reasons, faux wooden tiles can add the same warmth to a cold bathroom. These tiles also bring an element of color to an otherwise light-tiled bathroom. Go for light or dark wood tiles depending on the other tiles of your bathroom.

6. Moroccan Tile Pattern

If you want to create a bathroom that speaks volumes about your creative
personality, using Moroccan tiles to create an accent wall can be a great idea. One thing to keep in mind is to avoid installing a shower caddy or other accessories on this wall as the Moroccan pattern can get damaged.

5. All-black Accent Wall

Black is no more forbidden in the bathroom. Black bathroom tiles in a matte or glossy finish add a touch of elegance and can make your bathroom look modern. While white tiles make the bathroom look bigger, a black accent wall can bring the whole space together.

4. Blue Waterfall Tiles

Blue brings serenity to the space and blue waterfall tiles can make the bathroom look calm and inviting after a long hard day. You can go for one wall or all the walls but keeping these tiles above the bathtub or in the shower area is a better option. These tiles should be installed with light blue or gray tiles as the light gradient look makes them look more elegant.

3. Shiny Metallic Tiles
