I've got a bathroom reno coming up and I'm so torn between going neutral or going bold with the tile. Neutral is safe and will last longer without the fear of it going out of style, but the bolder options are just so much fun! Since I went with white in my last bathroom makeover, I'm considering changing things up. I have compiled my favorite bold tile examples. I'd love to hear what you think!
You can't go wrong with blue, in my opinion. And adding it just to the shower nook is a good option if your nervous about pulling the trigger on the whole space.
But man! If you do pull the trigger, it pays off! Look at that gorgeous, shiny blue! I love that it is applied in a vertical way instead of the traditional horizontal subway look.

Yellow is one of my favorite colors. Can you imagine waking up and showering in here each morning? How could you be in a bad mood?

This bold pattern gives this space such personality. I'd feel like I was on vacation each day!

Black and white are a classic combo. This modern take on herringbone is gorgeous!

This green tile makes me think of clovers. You know me, I love anything green!
Reminiscent of vintage pink bathrooms of the past, this one is a bit updated with hexagon tiles and a stunning bath tub.
I love the slightly distressed look of these tiles! I think these might be my favorite...

My house has its fair share of arches and I have a weakness for them. This arched shower is STUNNING. The tile makes it perfect.

While I don't think I could pull the trigger myself on these colors, I love the look! It is such a fun, chic space.

This has a similar feel and I'm loving it.
If my bathroom had more natural light, I would consider a dark green like this. I love the unique shape as well.

With so many tile color, shape, and material choices, how do you pick? I'm curious if you would choose a bole tile or if you stick to neutrals. If you did pick a bold color or pattern, do you still like it? SPILL :)

After living with decor from the 50’s to now, I tend to find the safe neutral stuff my style. But I do have fondest for the 70’s. Lol
I say go for it!
I love the blue tile in the shower niche, contrasting with the fresh, bright white! I also love the arched shower with the black and white tile on one wall. A little goes a long way. And, white is always fresh and adds light, as most of us do not have huge bathrooms with lots of natural light.
A few ideas:
(1)What about gray tiles or gray and beige mix (or any color) cut into triangles like the green triangle tiles.
(2) Could you add a tube skylight to the bathroom for more light? That way you could go with the green tiles. I absolutely love green and I don't think it really goes out of style. Same with blue.
(3) Go with what you really love so you can enjoy your home. Someone once asked me, "Are you painting a certain color because it is trendy, or are you painting the colors in your house because you love those colors?" Same applies to tile.
Blue is where I would go. For a bathroom it is the perfect colour. Just don’t overdo it. There is such a thing as too much and overkill. Good luck!
I think color choice has to consider the size of the room, as well as the amount of natural light. If the bathroom is small (like mine) with no windows (also like mine), I think anything too dark would not work. Also for a small room, a little color goes a long way. If you put too much color (or too many colors, like multi-colored tiles) in a small space it may look gaudy. Blue is generally safe, though I prefer greens and warm colors. The color of the vanity would also make a difference what color tile you use.
A bunch I like here, particularly the green triangles. Love that cat! and the wild tiles. And the cat. And the arched shower with just one wall of pattern. Really, as mentioned, it depends on your bathroom and how you feel standing in it.
These tiles are incredible! I love so any but the Home Depot ones are pretty. Needed this inspiration for my kitchen and bathrooms.
The picture of the sleeping cat next to the colorful pink tone tyle, any idea where to find them?
