If there's one simple detail that transforms the style of any bathroom, it's the tiles. Their shape, size, material, and design instantly infuse the room with a certain character. Subway tile reads classic while switching it up to be vertical gives it a modern edge. Square ceramic tiles give a bit of a retro vibe, especially in a nostalgic colorway. Large slabs of marble or slate provide an understated elegance. Mixing and matching bathroom tile designs within a single space can be even more impactful, so get creative if you're planning on giving your bathroom a facelift.
