How to Add Accent Tiles in Your Bathroom


Bathrooms make for one of the most important rooms of a home. Since they are used pretty much every single day, it’s important to make them comfortable and pleasing to the eye.

Apart from that aspect of bathroom renovation, there is also one that people who are going for a home removal and home selling should look out for. Improving the bathroom of your home can in fact boost its resale value and mean the difference between a successful deal and no deal at all. So before you go on with your relocation, consider the benefits improve your bathroom a little.

This is a quick and simple way to add flair to your bathroom space without taking apart the entire bathroom refurbishment. Leave the handyman to work on a bigger job, while you take on this tiling project. Add personality to your bathroom by using these creative ideas.

  1. Accent tile “rug”

This is a really interesting idea. Many people think of adding accent tiles on the wall, but this project involves focusing on the floor. Use various sizes to create the design of your choice and lay out the tiles in the form of a rug. This design idea works best if you have a boxy bathroom shape.


  1. Accent wall

Choose the area in the bathroom that you would like guests to focus on most. Adding an accent wall creates a focal point in the room, keeping it interesting and visually appealing. Remember to coordinate the colour in the tile with the darkest colour in the room, which will maintain continuity and add more depth.

  1. No trash

If you have any leftover pieces, do not be quick with the house removal process. Instead, get creative and put them to good work. Add them to the outline of a mirror or picture frame for an extra pop of colour throughout your room. You could also use them to decorate a vase or other accent piece. There is just so much you can do with the tile pieces, apart from obvious removal.

  1. Low budget idea

If the budget is tight from all the expenses during home removals (such as booking with a moving service), or if you are cramped for space and do not want to overdo it, then adding accent tiles to a recessed area is a great way to add a little flair to the space. It is cost effective and you can select more expensive tiles that you really want because you will be covering less space.

  1. Textured accent tiles

If you are going for a modern feel, textured accent tiles are the way to go. Adding pebbles or a tile that has a wooden-like feel adds a modern and serene feel to your washroom, like you are in an outdoor spa.
