How To Use Blue Bathroom Tiles In A Way That Isn’t Boring

The bathroom and the tiles go hand in hand and some would say one isn’t really complete without the other. Most often than not this is true as tiles are found in most bathrooms in various different forms and proportions. In each case a decision has to be made regarding the type of tile, the color and the pattern in which they are laid.

Tile patterns like herringbone, chevron, grids, diamond or basket weave help us visual interest and character to the bathroom. The same thing can be said about the color of the tiles. Colors are very powerful and they’re crucial in the world of interior design. Blue in particular is a beautiful tile color which suits the bathroom more than any other nuance.
