Bathroom Tile Ideas, Styles and Tile Design Explanations

Offering exciting tile variations to decorate and transform your life at Bellevue’s premiere tile showroom.

There are many tile variations with unlimited choices, colors, styles, themes, and ideas for mixing and matching. Designing with tile can be fun, exciting, and overwhelming. Here, we’ve added definitions and explanations to tile designs to help you understand tile terminology while helping you achieve ideas for your bathroom. Some of the listed designs work for any room of the house. Today, we’re focusing on tile designs specifically for your bathroom.

When designing a bathroom, it is important to consider the type of tile that best suits the needs of the owner. You want to match what the owner envisions with added functionality. 

Homeowners can find tile products they need at reasonable prices in many showrooms and warehouses. However, not all showrooms have the same selection or quality of products on display. You want to make sure you find a showroom with artists that understand your needs as a designer or homeowner while offering solutions to finding the best quality tile.

The most important thing to realize is that many homeowners have never picked out tile before. They don’t necessarily know what they are looking for. It’s a designer’s job to help them understand what works best with what. A designer’s job is to educate the client on what is offered in tiling and show them what design works best for them.

At Dwellings Tile, Stone & Design (formerly Pratt & Larson Tile of Seattle), we believe in the transformative power of tile. We bring together the finest materials—both locally and internationally—to create a sense of structure, balance, and sophistication throughout your home.

As soon as you walk into our Bellevue showroom, you will feel a sense of relief when you meet our encouraging and supportive staff. Let us help you find what you want within the world of tiling products, and you’ll complete your bathroom with style and ease.

Tile Variations and Designs/ Tile Color Options

Multi-Color Blend

Multi-color blends are a great way to add color to a space without adding too much color. They’re a good option for those who want to use their bathroom as an artistic outlet or want to experiment with different shades.

You can use these tiles on the walls, floor, shower, and sink. Some people like mixing up their tile colors, while others like sticking with one shade throughout the room; this is up to your taste and the beginning of tile variation design.

Gray and White Blends

The color gray can be a good choice for bathroom tile because it is a neutral color. The same goes for white, which makes a great choice for bathrooms. A blend of the two colors is an excellent choice because it gives you the benefits of both colors without being too harsh on your eyes. Gray and white also fuels feelings of relaxation and a sense of ease which is what you want to feel in your bathroom.

Neutral Blend

Neutral tiles are a great way to create a relaxing and calming space. Neutral tiles are also easy to match with other colors, as they don’t have strong reds or blues that may clash. This makes them perfect for creating a cohesive look throughout the room.

Blue, White, Gray Blend

The blue, white, and gray blend is a great look for those who want something a little more neutral. This color scheme uses light grey as the primary color, with blue and white accents. The blue has a very subtle touch and works well with both dark and light grays.
