Are you one of those people that loves flipping through design magazines or scrolling through Instagram keeping up with those beautiful design and decor trends? I’ll admit that I’m one of those people and it can be a real bummer to feast on all of that eye candy and then turn around and walk into a boring, dated space in your own home that leaves you feeling anything but inspired. What if I told you that you could bring some of those luxe looks into your very own spaces?
Let’s focus on the bathroom because while it’s quite possible to blow a giant budget in that small space it’s also possible to incorporate some design elements that can go a really long way for less than a complete overhaul. Whether you’re looking to completely gut your bathroom and start new or just refresh your space you can bring these luxe tile looks to your space and create an oasis that’s anything but ordinary!
Wood-look tile can be used to bring a truly unique flare to your bathroom. This look is especially flattering in urban spaces because it has the ability to bring a modern, rustic look to your space. While it is primarily used as a floor tile consider using it as a wall tile in your bathroom to up the luxe look.
White tile with black grout brings an incredibly sophisticated look to a space with really minimal effort. Pair the look with honeycomb tile or small mosaic tile for and especially chic look that will stand the test of time.
Subway tile is timeless! It works in craftsman spaces as well as it works in modern, sleek spaces. White subway tile is a particularly effective way to up the luxury look of your bathroom because of just how enduring it can be. Because of that long-lived look it also has the potential to be a real money saver because you can swap out your accent colors and fixtures as the trends change and give your bathroom an updated look without a lot of work to get there.
I really love the potential of this look. Bring in artistic tile to make a statement about your design style. You don’t have to dedicate a whole wall or floor to achieve the look either! The look below highlights how you can dedicate a smaller space and create a work of art in your bathroom that’s impervious to the humidity and creates an absolutely stunning luxe look!
Mix and Match
A lot of bathrooms shy away from different floor tiles. It’s not uncommon to see mix and match floor and wall tiles in the bathroom but not quite as common to see it when it comes to flooring. At least not in our everyday, average, normal, ordinary, real people bathrooms. It doesn’t have to be that way though. Look how lovely these beautiful floor tiles complement each other.
Tile is such a fabulous way to really express your design style and create a truly luxury space. Most of us will never have the sprawling bathrooms that grace the covers of magazines and get us double-tapping on Instagram but that doesn’t mean we can’t create our own luxe bathroom spaces that we’ll love showing off and spending time in.
