Luxury Meets Relaxation
Spa time anyone? Turn your bathroom into a special haven with mixed marble tiles.
Channeling a diamond plaid pattern, the Bardiglio and Carrara tile is fashionable and bold. You get a beautiful blend of subtle, multidimensional hues that range from warm earth tones to cool greys and ivories. You can easily coordinate these colors with other design features in your bathroom, like a modern dual vanity in white and earth tone towels that pick up the accent colors in the marble.
Perhaps you prefer cool tones! This triangular hexagon tile features a frosty blend of Dolomite, Leyte Blue, and Thassos marble — a wintery color combo. Naturally, these tones contrast well with wood surfaces and cabinets, or harmonize with other white or grey surfaces and textures.
Here’s a cool geometric bathroom tile idea: choose a design that goes outside the box — literally! By experimenting with shape and pattern, you can give your bathroom a more personal touch.
This triangular porcelain tile is a perfect example. Its abstract fractal look makes a playful statement, while the wood grain porcelain tile finish creates an organic feel. Since it’s a strong attention grabber, be sure to keep the other bathroom features plain, like white subway tile for the backsplash and minimalist sink basins.
If you’re not one to play it safe, go with something even more daring! This green and white brick tile is a modernist’s dream, featuring a funky mix of white Carrara marble and emerald rectangles. It coordinates perfectly with a white vanity counter; by introducing other green elements like a soap dispenser and mat, you’ll ace the white-and-green color scheme!

For the surrounding space, consider inviting a variety of other textures like decorative stones, a fluffy mat and a plant stand.
How to design with geometric bathroom tiles -
Expressive and ornate, or simple and chic - geometric tiles are an ideal choice to step up your bathroom style! Although there are (technically) no design laws, there are some guidelines to get the best objective result when it comes to adding patterns to your bath design. Let’s review some of the key factors to consider when selecting your tile!
Where to tile?
Location matters. For both functional and aesthetic reasons, you need to examine the layout and dimensions of each area in your bathroom before you begin to tile. Factors like color, size, shape, and material all affect the overall outcome in terms of how well your tile choices compliment other existing features in your bathroom.
These considerations are especially important with geometric tiles! Since they are more angular and eye-catching, you need to place them in a harmonious way within the space.
To help you along, we’ll review some common tile guidelines for each area of the bathroom.
Geometric Shower Tiles
The best tile for a shower is durable, water-resistant, and low-maintenance such as a ceramic or porcelain. What’s more, just because a material is suitable for the shower wall, doesn't mean it works for the floor — think anti-slip. Geometric glass tile, for instance, is too slippery for floors but can look stunning on the walls!
Your next concern should be visual coordination! Let’s say your style is funky and you're using hexagons with colors that contrast or pop - then the shower will be the focal point of your bathroom and you want to keep other elements more low key and minimal. Otherwise, too many competing colors and shapes everywhere can look chaotic.
Bathroom Floor Ideas
Follow the same rules for bathroom floor tile as when installing tile in the shower: choose material that’s easy to sanitize and maintain. Geometric marble tile is a classic choice that’s both physically and visually practical. Marble tends to elevate the look of a master bath, whereas for a guest bath, porcelain is more affordable and offers great water resistance.
In terms of design, bathroom floor tiles can be as wild as you’d like! If you go for a vivid optical pattern, we recommend keeping the rest of the look neutral to avoid over complicating the space.
Accent your Bathroom Walls
Basic bathroom walls instantly look more lavish and upscale with geometric tiles. They add depth and drama to an otherwise plain drywall or quiet paint color!
Geometric glass tile is a popular choice, loved for its beautiful reflective look that can enhance natural light. As a plus, its texture is smooth and easy to maintain, unlike stone which is porous and can absorb moisture and bacteria more easily. Nevertheless, if you’re willing to invest the effort of upkeep, natural materials like granite and marble make a stunning choice.
How about accent tiles? They add dimension and movement throughout the bathroom walls. Diamond mosaic tiles can create a lovely accent, either in a color that compliments the surrounding space or offers an unexpected pop of color!
Are you ready to get daring with a dazzling geometric glass tile accent wall or are you keeping to a more neutral look with classic marble diamond designs? Whatever your preference might be, you’ll find lots of inspiration in our Bathroom Gallery!
