Say no to ordinary. 11 tips for using accent tile in your bath!
In many of my projects, I like to start with the accent tile as my "inspiration" for the bath materials. Sometimes you can find a pattern or color that really speaks to the client and can inspire the selection of the rest of the materials and colors. But I shy away from the typical 6 to 12 inch wide border of tile installed at eye height. There is nothing inherently wrong with this concept but let's face it, it's not all that creative.
With so many beautiful decorative tile options in the marketplace, it is a shame to not highlight the beauty of your selection in a creative manner and punch up the overall design. But not all baths need a true accent tile. In some instances just varying the size of the tile used can have dramatic impact. Equally as interesting is building an accent wall of field tile that may vary in size or color.
Decorative tile can also be a budget buster if you need too much of it to make a statement. In many of these baths, just a few square feet makes a big impact! Let me know what you think!
