Bath Tile Trend: Floor To Ceiling Fabulous!


Increased interest in European-style wet rooms may have kicked off the recent surge in floor-to-ceiling tiled walls. Designers and builders are paying careful attention to universal design, which includes an accessible curbless shower entry. A wet room is the best way to accomplish this in the smallest amount of space, and extending the same tile throughout a smaller space can help make it look bigger while reflecting light.

The look ranges from the plainest of white ceramic tiles with white grout to colorful mosaics, from vintage Victorian to futuristic. Here are a dozen dramatically different ways to try this savvy move. 

-- Go monochromatic. A 1- by 1-inch tile in a solid color adds texture in a subtle, clean-lined and contemporary pattern.

-- Emphasize one accent wall. The large cream tiles on this side wall support the small-scale green glass mosaic tile.


-- Go Halfway! This Modern Mediterranean bathroom by AK Renovations in Marietta, G gives the look of a tiled wall without going all the way up! The high ceilings and vast wall space would make a full walls of tile too much of a good thing in this bathroom. But the complimentary tile and the bullnose extended height chair rail make an excellent choice for a custom spa look.
