Typically you will choose a floor tile, a wall tile for the shower/ tub surround or even all of the walls in your bathroom, and an accent tile that will be used as a focal point. This is just a guideline. Don't be afraid to break the rules a little bit. There are so many beautiful tiles out there and a bathroom is a perfect place to show off some of your personality and take a risk with a fun color or pattern on your tiles. However, if you are going to go for it, keep it to one show stopper. This will make your look timeless and really create the wow factor that you are going for since it won't be competing with the other elements in the room. (Many of these super special tiles can be pricey, but if you are working in a small area like a bathroom, they might just be the splurge you need since you won't need very many square feet.
For smaller bathrooms with tighter quarters, sometimes a smaller multipurpose vanity or a custom vanity with open shelves can make the room feel bigger. Another way to get the most out of a smaller bathroom is to choose an open vanity without cabinets. Mounting cabinets to the wall as opposed to having them under the sink will give your eye some breathing room, create easier foot traffic and potentially keep the doorway from being blocked by cabinet doors. Once you know how you want the space to function, you need to figure out the look and feel you want your bathroom to have. Use your cabinets and vanities to drive home the design, whether modern or rustic. Floating your cabinets is ideal in small bathrooms or as a way to make your room feel more open. Use vessel sinks that sit on top of your bathroom vanity to create a more luxurious look.
Your show stopper area can be big or small, it's up to you. The good majority of this bathroom is done in pretty basic white tile, but they added a wow factor with this beautiful tile at the top. Again the colors in this bathroom are pretty neutral, but the focal point is definitely the back wall of this shower. I love the idea of going with a really fun tile on the floor of a bathroom and keeping the rest of the space neutral. I don't like to clean. I especially don't like to clean the tub and shower so when choosing tile for these very wet areas you will probably want to go with porcelain or ceramic tile since they are virtually maintenance free. (You will want to double check to see if they need to be sealed.) Tiles make from natural stone require more maintenance and do have to be sealed. They are definitely more pours so they tend to hold on to dirt and grim more. If you are wanting to add texture with stone, it may be a good idea to use it on the floor or in a less wet area. Lastly, glass tile is so pretty and makes a great wall or accent tile. It is super slippery, so it doesn't work well on the floor.
