What’s new in bathroom tiles?

When we were in Palm Springs we not only visited mid-century modern homes, we also took a look at what was happening in new construction. One thing that struck me was the use of bathroom tiles.

Bathroom floor tiles

Colors were neutrals and greys… lots of subway tiles… vertical accents in the shower… and lots of tile insets of smaller sizes, unique shapes, even Escher-like tiles that make your eyes vibrate.

Mike Otto of Fair and Square Remodeling recently did a post on what is new in bathrooms for 2016, and it includes subway tiles and neutral color palettes. Here is his list…

  • Trough sinks
  • Freestanding tubs
  • Open shelving
  • Square shaped faucets
  • Subway tiles
  • Heated floors
  • Neutral color palettes
  • Digital features
