shower bathroom tile MadisonWhen it’s time to give your bathroom design a refresh, you may find yourself wondering what to do about that old, outdated shower.  Here at Floor Coverings International Madison, you may think our expertise stops at the floor.  However, we often install new tile showers and can help you select a stylish material that is up to the task.  Read on to see some of the latest shower tile trends to watch.

Subway Tile 

The subway tile trend is alive and well and it expands into bathroom design. The rectangular white tiles can be installed with white grout, creating a more uniform look, or darker grout which helps to define the shape and style of the tiles.  Subway tile will give your bathroom an trendy, sleek look.  In terms of color, white tile is not going out of style in bathroom design anytime soon, so you’ll likely have a look that will work for decades.

Natural Stone 

Natural stone has been used in bathroom design for many years and it’s simple to see its appeal.  Moisture is not a problem and, when properly cared for, natural stone tile can last a lifetime. The natural beauty of each unique piece of stone also gives your bathroom design a luxurious feel. Many homeowners choose marble, limestone, or even slate in their bathroom shower or flooring.

Glass Tile 

Whether you’re adding in a backsplash, an accent to your shower, or a countertop, glass can be an excellent way to go.  Glass tiles come in a surprising variety of colors. Go with a blue and green palette or bring in neutral earth-tones with the glass tiles.  Glass gives you a surface that is easy to clean, simple, and beautiful.

Ceramic or Porcelain Tile 

Many homes feature porcelain or ceramic tiles in the bathroom.  These tiles come in solid colors, brushed tile varieties, and also in many patterns that resemble natural stone.  No matter what your bathroom design plan is, there’s a good chance ceramic or porcelain can fit the bill. When when it comes to price, you’ll save compared to natural stone varieties.
