Decorative Tile Bathroom Ideas for All Budgets

Tile is a very practical material for bathrooms because of its ability to repel water, durability, ability to be cleaned easily, and the variety of options available. Tile is a great choice for bathroom floors, walls, and even ceilings!

Decorative tile is a great way to add a pop of interest in your bathroom, whether on the walls, in the shower, or as a backsplash. Decorative tile tends to be more expensive than standard tile, so it is typically used sparingly, such as in a small band on the wall or a small inlay in a shower. However, if you have a healthy budget, you can really have some fun with decorative tile!

For Small Budgets:For Large Budgets:
  • Try adding a small band of decorative tile (like glass tile) as a backsplash around your sink/countertop. Depending on the scale of your bathroom, you might only need to come up a few inches.
  • You could also add a small band of decorative tile around your shower at approximately eye level.
  • Alternatively, you could pick a square or rectangular area in the shower to install decorative tile.
  • Consider decorative tile for a whole wall (or all your walls!). Installing small glass tiles on a whole wall looks great and adds texture and dimension to your bathroom.
  • Custom patterns and inlays are another consideration for large budgets.
  • Many highly specialized tiles are available in glass, porcelain, and wood-like finishes.
