Your bathroom shower-tile is a popular thing to add color and accent to your bathroom colors. You can place large or small tiles, or both, in the shower and around your tub.
Placing your tiles on the flat or even on the diagonal, commonly called "on point" is an interesting way of creating a pattern with your tile.
There are various designs you can use to add a dramatic effect to your tile. Using a larger square tile for 3 or 4 feet and then a small 2-3 inch pattern all around the shower or above the tub,
you can then repeat the larger square and finish the top with a bull-nose cap tile as shone below.
This shower has simple squares up about 4 feet, and then a 4 or 5 inch feature strip of smaller tiles, and then a couple more rows of bigger tiles. The bull-nose tiles cap it all off finishing the tub surround nicely.
My daughter,Lorena, created a unique design with her tile in her bathroom by arranging the "tiles on a mat" in interesting ways. It took her a bit of time, but she was happy with the results and the tile really looks good. This pix shows her final design which she carried over into her shower.
There are myriad of designs that you can make with tile. Using various colors you can create peaceful feelings, or even dramatic color combinations.
RL wanted a very subdued tile around our bathtub and so he chose a nice edge of the same color to accompany his large marble looking tile. It turned out quite nice for our tub.
