Perhaps it’s time to replace your fiberglass shower with tile. This is a great way to renovate your bathroom—transforming it into the master bathroom you’ve always wanted or creating a stunning guest bath. At Floor Coverings International Central Westchester, we have a vast selection of tile products and styles that can turn your vision into a reality. Read on to learn five shower tile design ideas we recommend for your greater Westchester County home.
White Subway Tile
Subway tile is a popular design for shower walls. It lends well to modern or contemporary designs and provides a clean, fresh look. Also, white subway tile pairs well with other designs without being overwhelming. This is a great option if you like to redecorate.
Bring a natural, rustic look to your shower with wood-look tile. This gives your shower the look of a wooden sauna, creating a tranquil and relaxing space. Choose to install the wood-look planks vertically or horizontally for different affects.
Marble tile brings a look of luxury to any room. Use 12×12 or 12×24 inch slabs of polished marble for a traditional or Mediterranean design.
However, it’s important to keep maintenance in mind when selecting natural stone products for shower walls. Abrasive or highly acidic cleansers should not be used on marble, since they can wear away at the sealant and damage the stone underneath. If this seems like too much of a hassle, opt for ceramic tile with a marble look.
Glass mosaics create a stunning and energizing shower wall. In particular, these tiles pair well with natural lighting, since they sparkle when wet. Glass tiles come in a wide range of colors, providing plenty of design variation. They are also stain, mold, and mildew resistant and can be cleaned with any all-purpose cleaner.
Add An Accent Strip
Shower tile strips are a popular design option. Accent strips generally incorporate mosaic tiles, which form a ribbon around all the shower walls or stretch vertically along a single wall. These accents work to add interest and complete the shower’s design.
