Wall tile in full bath

scoganFebruary 27, 2013
I currently have 4x4 off-white matte finish wall tiles in my full bath. It's on the 3 walls above the tub and on all the other walls in the bathroom as wainscoting. I really like the tile because of it's flexibility for decorating. Unfortunately, the grout on 2 of the walls above the tub and the wall board behind it is in bad shape and needs to be replaced. I would just replace it with the same tile, but I can't find a match anywhere (it's probably 20 years old). Is there a way to design the new tile around the tub, so that I can keep the current wainscoting and have the room look cohesive and not like a hodge podge?

For maximum cohesion? Go with tiles the same color as your paint. You could interchange design tiles in something you like to make it look custom. You'd be surprised what some patterned tiles in a design you like can do to personalize your space. A few pricy tiles instead of all pricy tiles surrounded by the wall color tiles. Tastes run from dragonfly to butterfly to sunflower. Find one that says YOU.

Here are some examples. You are limited only by budget and imagination. If you like it, that's all that matters.
