3 Timeless White Bathroom Tile Trends

Fireclay Tile Inspiration Gallery: Emily Henderson's Guest Bathroom Reveal

All-purpose and always flattering, there’s everything to love about white bathroom tile. No matter what your style is, you can count on white to go the distance. We’ve rounded up three ways to work with white that will never fall out of favor (check out our Pinterest Board for even more trends).

1. Herringbone

Herringbone tile has been around for a long time. Give it a modern update with our large format EDGE series in Calcite. Crisp precision edges help to give herringbone patterns a clean contemporary look.

White herringbone tile can be a bold choice with the help of your favorite accent color. This bathroom’s blend pink, gold, and white floor tile shows us how a little can go a long way.

Looking for bathroom backsplash tile ideas? Consider exposing the edges of a herringbone tile pattern to lend it extra dimension. All-over white helps to keep the space looking seamless.

2. Offset

White tile and offset arrangements are a classic design combo. This timeless bathroom’s square offset pattern beautifully balances out the handpainted floor tile. If you love handpainted patterns but want something a little more subtle, consider our chic Neutral Motifs.

If you’re looking for something more modern, consider aligning your shower tiles vertically in an offset arrangement. This can also help to make your ceilings look higher (and who doesn’t want that?).

This bright and airy bathroom subtly subverts our expectations by arranging floor subway tile diagonally. A fresh white palette ties it all together.

3. Pattern Play

See a tile pattern you love but not sure how to make it work? You’ll never go wrong with white tile. Plus, the bathroom is the perfect spot to test out your favorite trends.
