When it comes to bathroom design, one of the easiest places to make a statement is with the shower design. Glass doors allow your shower to be on display; so don’t be afraid to show off with a beautiful design. Here are some top shower trends to consider from the experts at the Poulin Design Center.
Chevron Tile and Herringbone Pattern Tile
Chevron tiles keep popping up in kitchen and bathroom designs alike. This unique angled look is a great eye-catching way to install the tile. The chevron shape comes in many sizes so that you’re not limited to the design possibilities. You can also achieve a similar look by installing classic rectangular tiles in a herringbone pattern as pictured above.
Wood Look Tile
Natural wood looks beautiful and gives your home a rustic feel. However, in a moist environment like the bathroom, it’s smarter to get your wood fix using a porcelain wood-look tile. This can be installed as flooring, but more and more it is used to create a truly unique shower design. Consider classic browns or go with the stylish grey wood-look tile.
Lantern Shaped Tile
If you want your tile to exude elegance, you’ll want to make sure you consider lantern-shaped tile. This shape of tile comes in various sizes and can create a beautiful shower and backsplash option for your bathroom design. Go with a classic white or feel free to add in glass varieties as well.
Small Porcelain Tile
Historic homes and buildings often feature small square ceramic tiles in the entryway and bathroom. Trends tend to come back and we’re seeing more and more homeowners going after this classic look. Smaller tiles can be used as the shower floor option and will provide great traction. However, smaller tiles make the perfect accent for a shower wall. Consider a single vertical strip of smaller tile.
