Your bathroom shower-tile is a popular thing to add color and accent to your bathroom colors. You can place large or small tiles, or both, in the shower and around your tub.

Placing your tiles on the flat or even on the diagonal, commonly called "on point" is an interesting way of creating a pattern with your tile.

There are various designs you can use to add a dramatic effect to your tile. Using a larger square tile for 3 or 4 feet and then a small 2-3 inch pattern all around the shower or above the tub, you can then repeat the larger square and finish the top with a bull-nose cap tile as shone below.

This shower has simple squares up about 4 feet, and then a 4 or 5 inch feature strip of smaller tiles, and then a couple more rows of bigger tiles. The bull-nose tiles cap it all off finishing the tub surround nicely.

bathtub tile My daughter,Lorena, created a unique design with her tile in her bathroom by arranging the "tiles on a mat" in interesting ways. It took her a bit of time, but she was happy with the results and the tile really looks good.

You can see more pictures of her tile in the shower, around the sink, and on the floor of her shower on her husband's website by clicking HERE. Go to "bathroom" on nav bar plus they have step by step directions in the ebook available there.

The 3rd and 4th pictures that you will see, show their above tub plus their shower, and then by scrolling down to "Photograph samples from book" you'll see more of Lorena's tile work. On the side of the tub, she placed the tiles on point. It was a fun experience for her.
