Retro Stencil Tile

Most trends are made by finding inspiration from the past and turning that idea into a cool, updated style. The retro stencil tile trend is no different. The Cementine Retro rectified porcelain tile series looks back at fabrics from the 60s, 70s, and 80s, and has transferred those charming colors, patterns, and time-worn look into tile. This cool bathroom wall tile brings charm and personality to your bathroom. It's the type of design feature that makes people smile when they see it.

Long Hexagon Tile

The long hexagon tile trend is a twist on a twist. Hexagonal tile is already playful, but when you elongate the hexagon, it looks even more whimsical and modern. Neutral-toned geometric patterns are ideal for people who want to experiment with playful tile while still maintaining a classic, simple look. For an effortlessly modern bathroom backsplash, choose the slender Paloma tile. This geometric tile's sleek lines will give your bathroom more dimension and personality.

Fabric-Look Tile

One thing that's missing from most bathrooms is coziness. In other rooms of the house, your fabric furniture, curtains, rugs, and blankets add a pleasant warmth. However, other than floor mats, it's hard to bring fabric into a bathroom that's constantly getting wet. 

The solution is surprising yet simple. Imagine tile that is made of durable porcelain but looks like fabric. The Digitalart tile series uses digital print technology to perfectly mimic that comforting, soft, and welcoming texture of fabric but in a material that makes more sense for a bathroom. This unique tile will make guests do a double-take. They may even touch it to see if it's real fabric.

Immersive 3D Tile

This trend takes textured tile a step further. 3D tile doesn't just look textured. It actually is textured. Give your bathroom walls depth with a tile that you'll want to reach out and touch. Although it's a statement tile, its clean, endless look and neutral color options make it surprisingly easy to integrate into any bathroom. This modern 3D aesthetic will definitely give you the cool bathroom you're looking for.

Black & White Tile

Looking for pattern but prefer the timeless black and white color scheme? Black and white patterned tile lets you express yourself without straying far from a classic bathroom design. This creative tile trend takes inspiration from 50s diner floors and black and white movies, mixed with the time-worn aesthetic of vintage film. Whether you like organic and curvy patterns or sharp and geometric lines, the Cementine Black and White Tile has something for you. This tile's porcelain material makes it perfect for bathrooms because it's easy to clean and holds up well to heat, steam, and water.

Glossy Colors

One of the easiest cool bathroom shower tile ideas to emulate is glossy colored tile. In a room known for neutrals, mattes, and natural stone, a pop of color on a glazed textured tile is a welcome change of pace. Glossy colored tile, like the Flash series that looks hand-crafted, gives your shower or bathroom walls a charming visual intrigue. Morning light dances off its blush, light blue, or cobalt surface, creating beautiful dimension in your space. 

If you'd prefer a more classic neutral tone, the Flash series also has smoky hues that still provide that trendy glazed look.

Vintage Geometric Patterns

This tile trend lets you turn your bathroom floor into a work of art. Vintage geometric patterns are colorful yet muted by artificial age to create a classic look. By switching from neutral and forgettable floors to mosaic floor tiles, your bathroom will instantly feel like a new place. With Cementine tile, stepping into your bathroom in the morning will be like going on vacation in your own home. To create an even greater visual impact with your own personal twist, mix and match different Cementine tile patterns to create a one-of-a-kind mosaic.
