Subway tile has been a growing trend in both the kitchen and bathroom spaces. The great thing about subway tile is that it can be used pretty much anywhere you want it to go. White subway tile makes for a great countertop, backsplash, or even shower. When installing it, you can choose from a variety of colors for the grout. This choice can help your subway tile stand out as much or as little as you want.
A common trend is to use a dark grey or black grout to bring out the patterns of the tile. This also helps to set you up with opportunities for other dark accents in your design. If you are looking to create a sophisticated space with some classic charm, this could be a great option for you. Subway tile is such a versatile design element that it is a great choice for customizing your bathroom to exactly the way you want it.

If you want your tile to become more of a statement piece, you can use geometric tiles to create a pattern. This trend is very popular in bathroom flooring and adds a whole lot of character to the space. A great thing about this tiling option is that it can give you a lot of freedom to play with different shapes, colors, and patterns to create an eye-catching centerpiece for your bathroom.
Often times, like in the pictured bathroom above, white tile is paired with a darker tile. This adds decoration to the space without it needing to be filled with rugs and other furnishings. A geometric design can also make a space look bigger through the clever use of lines that draw the eye from point A to point B. For those looking for a statement piece in their bathroom, this geometric tiling option is a great choice.

One final great option we wanted to share in this post is the use of river rock tiling. This is a great choice for those looking for a more natural flair in their bathroom. The slight variation in stone colors provides a beautiful mosaic that draws the eye. And you can find all sorts of color combinations to utilize. From different shades of white with low contrast, to white and black with high contrast, the combination you choose will determine how eye-catching of a feature it becomes.
River rock makes for a great accent in showers and is a very popular option for shower floors in specific. Not only does this create a beautiful natural feature, but it will also give the feeling of being outside on a riverbank right at home.
That is it for our roundup of some beautiful white tiling options for your next bathroom remodel project.
