The natural stone look is a classic and will add texture to your bathroom. It will also bring a whole new level of elegance to your shower — especially if you use marble! Marble has a timeless beauty, so you won’t have to worry about updating your bathroom every year. Just make sure you provide proper care for marble tiles, which need to be sealed at least twice a year to prevent discoloration and preserve their texture.

The Arabesque shape cyclically trends because of its distinctive and timeless design. The lantern-like shape is the perfect balance of geometric and intricate, making it super versatile! Since white Arabesque bathroom tiles are the standard go-to, you do have to pay attention to grout color. Try to avoid white grout lines. Too much white washes out the style, which is why white-on-white bathrooms are out. Instead, frame your fresh white tiles with a sandy beige colored grout to keep the look natural and give it harmonious contrast. This color combo also matches the natural wood-look for that spa effect.

Geometric Tiles

You can play with these patterns by choosing different color combinations like a contrasting black and white duo or an effortlessly cool grey.
