Wood-Look Bathroom Tile Ideas
A go-to in recent years for homeowners who love rustic design, wood-look tile is popular for good reasons. Moisture and steam in bathrooms can cause warping and other issues in real wood, but porcelain tile that looks like wood is water-resistant due to its low porosity.
Faux hardwood bathroom floors instantly update the space, making your bathroom look chic, sophisticated and welcoming. Grey tones are a popular choice in bathrooms since they look cool and contemporary. Bonus: long, wide plank tiles can help visually elongate the room to make it appear bigger than it really is. On the walls, wood-look tile can emulate the appearance of traditional wood paneling with a fresh and modern twist.
If you really want to turn the rustic dial up a notch, why not try wood-look tile shower walls? Smaller porcelain is a good tile for shower floors because it's non-porous and the smaller size means you’ll have more grout, which creates some additional grip. However, if you want large-scale porcelain on your shower floor, using our larger sizes that are available in the R11 Anti-Slip finish is a great option as well. Unique, unexpected and sure to impress, a rustic wood-look shower is the perfect way to make your bathroom stand out.

There’s something very charming and rustic about an exposed brick wall. If it’s a look you love, you’ll be happy to know that porcelain tile can be made to closely resemble real brick. Brick-look bathroom tile can give you the rustic warmth and textured style of a brick wall, which is sure to pack a big visual punch in your bathroom.

Rustic Decorative Tile
For rustic tile design with a decorative touch, a patterned porcelain tile is a beautiful choice. Decorative tile gives your space character and life and it’s a simple way to balance an otherwise minimalist bathroom design. Use it as an accent on bathroom walls, a decorative shower border or a tub surround to infuse some charm and create a rustic-chic room.
