15 Inspiring Tiled Bathrooms From Bold to Minimal

by Grace Bonney

One of my home renovation dreams is to one day save up enough to redo our upstairs bathroom. It’s a small add-on to the master bedroom and, while I’m grateful to have it, it could use a little love and a more minimal layout to make the most of the teeny square footage. I’ve dreamed of simplifying to a glass shower (to make the room feel bigger) and some patterned clay or cement tiles for the floor. I’ve been pinning and saving tile patterns for over a year now, and one day I’ll be excited to finally make the leap and rip things up and get started. Until then, I’m taking inspiration and motivation from these 15 tiled bathrooms that range from retro to modern to minimal to maximalist. I hope you’ll find an idea in this set to inspire your next project at home. xo, grace
