For such a small space, the bathroom sure commands a lot of attention. Most of that focus has to do with the necessity of this room, of course, but we'd also argue that bathrooms present a design challenge unlike any other area of a home. And that in itself is irresistible. 

To outfit an ideal bathroom, there must be an effortless harmony between function and style. For starters, all of the necessary parts have to be present, like a shower, toilet, and a sink. Then, it's best to have a cohesive color palette that also takes natural light or a lack thereof into account. In this case, we're going to focus on bathroom floor tile ideas. 

Bathroom floor tiles can highlight a range of tastes, from more traditional penny tiles to more modern geometric pattern tiles. Depending on a bathroom's color palette and size, floor tiles can create a cohesive look that unites the other four walls of this space together. If you're looking for ones that get their fair share of attention in this room, then consider these 13 bathroom floor tiles to complete this all-too-important space.
