Bathroom with large gray bath tub and geometric gradient floor tiles

Geometric tile designs are trending, and this designer kicked it up a notch with a gradient effect.

Plain white tiles transition to shades of grey and full patterns near the bathtub, creating a striking focal point and adding unique action to the bathroom.

You might be able to do the same with some stencils and the right paint. (By the way, did you know this is also a popular deck paint trend among artists? It’s true!)

2. Pebbled Carpet

A fully white tiled bathroom floor is not unusual, but this tile designer made it pop by adding a new element: a pebbled carpet leading up to the bathtub.

This carpeting illusion doesn’t involve a full texture of pebbles; rather, small light grey tiles form a rectangular faux carpet that creates a noticeable path. 

This cute look works with almost any color scheme, but white and grey are ideal for most bathrooms. It’s exotic and subtle and adds texture to the room. What more could you want?

3. Section It Off

This tile layout ensures you can tell which part of the bathroom you’re in, especially with a standing steam shower where glass panels can seem invisible.

After all, we’ve all had moments where glass panels seem invisible!

Two different tile patterns delineate the bathroom sections: one for inside the shower and the other for outside of the shower. Smart.

4. That’s Not Wood

Want to know one of the most popular trends in bathroom flooring? It’s wood-look tiling like the one you see here.

Wood-style tiling gives a bathroom an air of elegance, similar to what you expect in a spa or luxurious resort. The only difference? It’s less prone to mold, easier to maintain, and, in many cases, cheaper. 

Wood tiling is a great pick for people who fall in love with wood but want something more bathroom-appropriate.

5. Made In Marble

This is not a new concept by any means, but oh goodness, it’s such a nice look!

Marble, with a slightly warm hue like this, is an excellent choice for people who want a timeless bathroom that looks amazing and still feels homey enough to work in any house.

This marble shade looks great with silver bathroom accents, by the way.

6. Tiny Details

Industrial style bathroom with tiles with a detailed petite pattern

The main trend in most parts of the country is to use large floor tiles throughout the bathroom. This adds a seamless, modern touch to every building.

However, that isn’t always a good thing. Too much seamlessness can look fake or even downright soulless, especially with cooler color schemes. 

This designer broke up the monotony of their industrial-style bathroom by adding tiles with a detailed, petite pattern, giving it a much-needed human element. 

7. A Stripe Of Blue

While the tiling is considered the de facto flooring of most bathrooms, this doesn’t have to be the case throughout the bathroom.

This crafty designer used a poured concrete floor buffed to a matte finish for most of the bathroom. Then, to add a unique focal point, they continued a stripe of tile from the wall on the floor.

Though this isn’t the cheapest look, it stands out well. Everyone loves that creative flair!

8. Mural It In

Did you know floor murals are a major feature in top mansions these days? It’s true; you can use tiling to create one in the bathroom.

This Italy-inspired bathroom features a stunning old-world compass design made entirely of cut tiles, and we couldn’t love it more!

Tile-based murals aren’t the cheapest trend, but their elegance is timeless. If you want to really rock this look, opt for classic Italian accessories, too.

9. Honeycomb Heaven

Octagonal and hexagonal tiles, known as honeycomb tiles, likely inspired the designer behind this cute yet insanely modern bathroom.

Like most other bathrooms done in a modern style, this bathroom is primarily white and dark grey, giving it an industrial look. 

However, the designer broke away from the status quo by choosing yellow for the bathroom flooring and walls. We feel that this is a golden design that will continue to get positive reviews!

10. It’s Black And White

White and black modern bathroom

Black and white checkered tiles, popular in the 1950s and Gilded Age, never should have gone out of style.

This bathroom flooring option’s high contrast is a bold statement that will make jaws drop. While it’s traditional in its own right, the way the tiling looks on modern fixtures makes it avant-garde. 

If you choose this option, we strongly suggest incorporating the theme into everything. For example, having striped shower curtains can help create that trippy yet bold look. 

11. Black Marble

Most bathrooms feature white or cream marble-look tiles, but black marble is a rarity, primarily because it’s an intimidating tile color.

However, the dramatic look of black flooring might be just what your bathroom needs—just that it requires good contrast with white walls and fixtures to avoid a cramped appearance.

12. Going For Gold

Mosaic tiling fell out of favor once people started using it with uniform colorings, and rightfully so. When done poorly, it looks like a cheap grade school bathroom.

This designer, though, didn’t use it the wrong way. The bathroom walls and floors are done up in gold-hued mosaic tiling, featuring just a pinch of shimmer. 

The varied gold hues add dimension, while strategic lighting highlights the tiling, giving the room a stunning, unearthly glow.

13. Pebble Pride

This handmade pebble floor switches out traditional tiling in favor of petite pebbles, giving the shower an eye-popping vibe that is striking yet not completely out of the left field. It’s quirky, but not oddball.

Fans of this look should be prepared for its organic vibe. Want to make it a DIY project? Big tip: always use pre-tumbled pebbles to avoid cutting your feet.

14. On The Radar

This striking green flooring may look like a single spread, but it’s actually a group of hexagonal tiles with painted stripes arranged in starburst patterns.

Arranged in starburst patterns, they add a unique twist to classic flooring and a vibrant pop of color. To enhance the look, consider matching bathroom accessories.

15. Geometric Glory

We’ve covered honeycomb tiles, but rectangles and triangles are also popular. This geometric layout uses multicolored tiles to add color and dimension to a drab bathroom.

Slightly midcentury modern, it’s current with trends, thanks to soft colors and unique design.

16. True Blue

Shower with cool herringbone pattern

Bright robin’s egg blue can be a risky bathroom color, but this designer embraced it.

They added a cool herringbone pattern to the blue floor tiles and balanced it with a painted tile pattern and whites on the wall. The exotic look is further accented by a gold-accented mirror and a wooden table.

17. Reclaim It

Most people prefer crisp, glossy bathroom tiles, but this designer broke the mold. They accented their dark industrial-style bathroom with reclaimed terracotta hexagonal tiles.

This unusual combination creates an exotic, earthy vibe, contrasting the polished shower with gritty, vibrant terracotta. It’s a daring look—are you bold enough to try it?

Final Thoughts

Get creative underfoot with bathroom tile colors and patterns that make a statement. Be modern, be rugged, and choose your style to accentuate the entire room!
