Speaking of tiles, if you’re going the more traditional subway tile route, think about going with a beveled edge, as on the marble wall tile here. It adds just a bit more dimension and character to take a room from typical to dynamic.
The half-wet room (see below) is a strategy that’s easier to live with. The tub and shower are combined in the same area where the water is contained. This saves on the footprint required for a full bath with tub and separate shower, and the only thing getting wet is the bathtub.
It’s amazing how upbeat a bathroom becomes with the addition of a lively wallpaper. Here, an ocean-inspired print perks up a small bungalow bathroom in a way that even the most vibrant paint job couldn’t.
If you’re looking to add a little drama and depth to your master bathroom, consider large-format black hex tiles, as shown here. The color creates a moody vibe, while the pattern offers a graphic, textural look.
