Tile Trends : Mixed Surfaces

What do copper, stainless, hardwood and glass have in common? They represent some of the hottest tile trends currently popping up in hip bathrooms. Here's what we have to say about today's latest bathroom tile trends.


Glass Tile Backsplash

Used for backsplashes, shower walls and as accents on floors, glass tiles add a depth, sparkle and luminescence not found in ceramic or natural stone.

With a broad color palette, and finishes ranging from glossy to flat, glass tiles can fit most design schemes. When used sparingly, vivid glass tiles can provide exciting visual highlights. Conversely, when covering an entire bathroom wall, glass tile can create a luxurious spa-like atmosphere.


Metal Wall tiles kitchen backsplash

Looking for a tile that complements either traditional or contemporary bathrooms? The natural choice is metal. The most obvious application for metal wall tile is the backsplash. For a polished, contemporary look, go with stainless steel, which is available in finishes ranging from satin to brushed. Warm bronze or copper tile adds a timeless beauty to baths with more traditional style.


Faux hardwood tile floors

We all love the look of hardwood flooring, but it has no place in a bathroom. The next best thing may be faux hardwood porcelain tile.

Available in 2-, 3- and 4-inch planks, tile is much easier to care for than real wood. And porcelain's natural resistance to moisture makes it an appropriate material for any bath application.
