Bathroom Tile Ideas
Your bathroom shower and backsplash go from drab to dynamic
with our ceramic shower tile and bathroom tile designs!
American bathrooms tend to fall into two common genres: sterile
white or faintly funky. Many bathrooms are a bland landscape of
white and beige. Others may feature a bold area of color tile, but
lack a harmonious middle step that integrates bold color into the
rest of the room.
One of Cape Cod Treasure Chest's valued customers came to us
with a bathroom that met this exact description. Lots of white
tile, but then an interesting lower border of small emerald green
tiles. The customer decided it was time to take this bi-color
scheme to a whole new level by adding special shower tile and
backsplash tile elements that both break up the monotony and bring
amazing new life to the room.
Shower Tile Ideas
As you can see from the accompanying photo, this customer is
working on incorporating our decorative nautical tiles and fish tiles into the formerly
white space in their tile shower.
Rather than approching this project with a regimented,
checkerboard mindset, the customer has wisely chosen to scatter
these gorgeous shower tiles in a random pattern amongst the white
spaces. Shower tile should be treated like pieces of waterproof
art. You don't need to install them all in a row! It's going to be
much more interesting to have these underwater scenes peeking out
here and there like windows into a seascape.
You will also note that the customer has elected to mix up the
shower tile sizes they are using. Our ceramic tile designs come in
sizes as small as 4" x 4" to as grand as 12" x 12". By mixing tile
sizes, the effect is very natural.
Cape Cod Treasure Chest's bathroom tile designs are rich in
color and are doing a beautiful job of picking up the bold color
that is already present in the lower border of this tile
As you can see, when the grouting is finished and the walls are
given a scrub, this tile shower is going to glitter with interest,
color, and character.
Backsplash Tile Ideas
The above photo shows how the customer has continued the
nautical theme with the backsplash tile area above the bathroom
sink. Here, because the tile space is limited to two rows, the
installation of the tile is a bit more uniform in design. The
creativity here is in the varied choice of beautiful ceramic tile
designs. A palm tree here, a sand dollar there. You can imagine
that standing at this bathroom sink will now have a new element of
pleasure for both the homeowners and guests.
Here is another customer's shower creation that is a bit more formal as well as fun!
This design clusters the tiles and uses one of our turtle tiles diagonally to create more visual excitement
Or maybe just a border works better for you!
Bathroom tile ideas are as unique as individual people. While
the nautical theme tends to lend itself so well to rooms that focus
on water, your personal taste might dictate that ceramic tiles
featuring fruit designs, flower designs, or vivid birds
will be most appealing in your home's best bathroom.
Why Cape Cod Treasure Chest's Ceramic Tile
Design Collection is Special
If you go to your neighborhood home and bathroom decor chain store,
chances are your ceramic tile design choices will be limited to
mass-produced, generic pieces. Our tiles, by contrast, are designed
and handpainted by skilled artists and artisans. Each tile is a
little bit different, and this is what makes them works of art that
truly deserve a place of honor in your bathroom.
Our customers tell us that we are their favorite place to shop
for ceramic tiles because our designs are so realistic. Look at the
tropical fish tile shown at right. Doesn't it look like the fish
are swimming in a blissful, watery world? If your hope is to create
a spa-like retreat in your home's bathroom, we have a glorious
selection of exquisite tiles in a variety of motifs that will make
it possible for you to create the exact effect you want.
Installing Ceramic Tile from Cape Cod Treasure Chest
Our ceramic tiles have been designed for multi-purpose use. Each
tile comes with a removable cork backing - this makes them suitable
for use as coasters and trivets. However, if you are about to
install shower tile or backsplash tile in your bathroom, simply
follow these easy directions to remove the cork backing:
- Soak the tile in hot water
- Peel off the cork backing
- Install as you would any ceramic tile
