Update: Current Bathroom Styles Are Obsessed with Classic Tiles

What is trending when it comes to home design is constantly changing and evolving. What is popular one year will be completely outdated the next. Keeping up on what is trending and what homeowners are looking for in new homes is the best way to keep yours up to date, stylish and to increase value. 

Many homeowners are looking to create a timeless feel in their home, which helps keep it free from updates.  A more sophisticated and updated esthetic in a timeless design is being created by blending natural stone, quartz, porcelain, and ceramic tiles. Updating bathroom spaces is oftentimes done to create a more modern look that incorporates what is currently trending, but this can be a slippery slope. As things rapidly change, you will be in a constant cycle of updating every few years. Searching for something timeless will likely be more beneficial. 

What is timeless?

Timeless design focuses on keeping a space highly functional, which doesn’t mean bland and boring. Timeless often means that it is subtle and easily adaptable. It will outlast the trends. It is best to make it quite simple and very sophisticated. Consider using antiques combined with modern and contemporary art that is easily switched out when need be. 

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 tiles and other materials such as natural stones are 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. The white polished glossy tiles compliment ever changing trends. Consider using these classic tiles, but instead of a typical white grout, a black grout can really make the tile pop. This is a super easy twist on a classic that still keeps things timeless, but adds in a unique quality. Accompanying the 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

A great way to keep your bathroom space timeless while still making it unique is by using a unique shaped tile in a neutral color. This will keep the room pretty neutral, but still give you something of character to look at. Give the hexagon tile an updated and fresh, but always classic look by using a larger size or by mixing stone colors or material types. Using classic tiles that are 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.
