Going all in on a bold color will help infuse your bathroom with lively, playful energy. The bubblegum pink subway tiles on the wall and the almost leaf-like motif on the floors of this bathroom by designer Kureck Jones act as a prime example. Consider tapping into some of the color trends expected to be big in 2023, like vibrant orangey reds and deep magenta, when selecting a daring hue for wall and floor tiles.

There’s a renewed interest in colorful mosaics, according to Artistic Tile founder Nancy Epstein. Whether you opt for small tiles in a single bold color—as designer Charlotte Lucas did in this bathroom—or go for a multicolor display made of unique shapes and patterns, the possibilities are vast.

With the rise in wellness-focused spaces, it’s no surprise earth tones are having a moment. Colors found in nature inspire serenity, making them ideal options for bathroom tilework. In this bathroom by Lucy Harris, a backdrop of sage green tiles, a freestanding tub, and decorative accents work together to create a spa-like effect.

“Geometric tilework allows you to be bold and put your creativity to the test,” says Ruth Foster, interior designer at online bathroom retailer Victoria Plum. She suggests coupling statement-making tilework with simple furniture. Go even bolder by pairing geometric tile flooring with plain subway tiles and a tropical print wallpaper as designer Courtney McLeod did in this bathroom.

A black and white tile bathroom is both classic and bold,” says designer April Gandy. The color palette makes an excellent option if you want something more intricate like mosaic tiles with a more subtle effect, as seen in this bathroom by designer Leanne Ford. “When choosing patterns and textures, just be careful not to go overly bold or busy—the simpler the style, the longer it will last,” Gandy adds.
