Tiles are an absolute must in any bathroom. They shield your walls from the inevitable dampness and are easy to clean. They also play an aesthetic role, because they’re one of the most visible parts of the room. Today, we’re going to focus specifically on ideas for decorating your bathroom with ceramic relief tiles.

As you’ll see below, we’ve picked out some of the most classic and most modern choices. The way your wall looks is one of the main parts of bathroom style, so you need to give it your decorative all!

Ideas for ceramic relief tiles to decorate your bathroom

Earth tones

We’re going to start with a very traditional, elegant concept that goes well with any decorative scheme. Earth tones never go out of fashion, and they’re easy to match with. Here, you’ll see a variety of different earthy tones and geometrical patterns.

You can choose one type or combine them on one side of the walls, or even just use them to make a border. Make sure you alternate the different tiles to create a sense of continuity.

If you have a small, or poorly-lit bathroom, it’s probably better to use lighter tone tiles. That way, the light will reflect better and it will seem like a bigger, brighter space.

Classic white

One of our favorite ideas for ceramic relief tiles in bathrooms is an update on a classic concept. A long time ago, all bathrooms had small, glossy white tiles. As time went on, colorful and patterned tiles became more popular and the white kind became a relic of the past.

These relief tiles have all the benefits of those classic white ones and are even more aesthetically pleasing. Plus, they give the space light and depth, which makes them especially good for smaller bathrooms. They also have a different vibe that’s decorative but not excessive, thanks to the humble white.

A different, original bathroom

This concept is only for the boldest of you. It involves using tiles of various colors that are symmetrical and have a variety of geometrical patterns. Blue is the main color. You can put these kinds of tiles up in lots of ways, depending on whether you want a completely striking bathroom or one that’s a bit different, but still conventional.

One idea we like for this is to create a border around the entire bathroom. You can decorate the rest of the room with flat, earth tone tiles. But this is just one idea. These tiles are so colorful you can combine them with just about any other color that occurs to you.

Here are a couple more ideas on how to use relief tiles to create an amazingly original bathroom decoration:

  • Set the mirror into the wall. Choose a mirror with no frame at all–nothing but glass. Border the space around it with these colorful tiles to give it a different, original look.
  • Use ceramic relief tiles for the bath wall. If it’s a shower, use the tiles for both sides of the wall. This is a great way to differentiate the spaces and make your shower or bath stand out.

Gold for glamour

Golden tones are very in fashion in decoration right now. It’s becoming common in decorative objects, furniture, and lots of other parts of the home. It wouldn’t be fair to leave the bathroom out, so we’ve included gold tiles in our list.

Gold is the color of extravagance, luxury, and elegance. Of course, if you’re going to use golden ceramic relief tiles, you should only have them on a small part of the wall. You never want them to occupy the entire space. Doing that will just overload the space and make it look extremely tacky.
