Current Bathroom Styles Are Obsessed with Classic Tiles

There is new twist in classic bathroom design thanks to traditional materials, such as marble and subway tiles. A more sophisticated and updated esthetic in a timeless design is being created by blending natural stone, quartz, porcelain, and ceramic tiles. If you desire a luxury bathroom retreat and have contemporary, transitional, or modern style then this updated classic design is for you.

Timeless quality and design is highly sought after by homeowners and buyers. It is important to consider ever changing trends when selecting tiles to use as a backdrop in your bathroom. The goal is to select a tile color scheme that is universal and allows for a multitude of paint color trends to pair well or be complemented by it. Classic materials such as natural stone tile is a wise investment for your home.

So what are the top three traditional tiles in bathroom design right now? Subway tiles, white stone tiles, and hexagon tiles. Let’s discuss the modern interpretations of these timeless looks.

Subway Tiles

Nothing says timeless or classic like subway tiles do. Period. The white polished glossy tiles compliment ever changing trends. But using 3x6 subways tiles in a non-traditional design, such as a 90-degree herringbone pattern, is all the rage right now. Accompanying the patterned subway tile with a complimentary mosaic border adds the perfect amount of flair that will transform your bathroom into an instant classic.

White Bathrooms

Along with traditional subway tile, nothing quite says classic or timeless like all white bathrooms. And with the flip of almost any interior design magazine page, you will find all white kitchens and bathrooms. All white kitchens and bathrooms are always a popular choice and always in high demand. With all white bathrooms you will find that the room has a clean, bright, durable, fresh, and expansive feel to them. White opens the space up and natural sunlight really makes it shine. Consider using different types and textures of all white stone to keep the classic all white look, but add some dimension and character.

Hexagon Tiles

Small hexagon tiles have been used and trending for decades. Give the hexagon tile an updated and fresh, but always classic look be using a larger size or by mixing stone colors or material types. Using a classic gray and white marble for hexagon tiles has enough dimension and variation in coloring that even using the same type of marble will give the tile wall or floors a gorgeous appearance with noticeable difference and variation throughout.

Choosing a timeless lighter colored material that is easy to maintain for your bathroom countertop, floor tiles, and wall tiles is a wise investment for your luxury bathroom.
