For many of us, tile tub surrounds are the most realistic and budget-friendly design solution for our bathrooms. But that doesn't mean your bathroom has to be basic--we've rounded up three tile trends that will surround you with statement-making style (see even more designs on our Pinterest Board).

Remodeling your entire bathroom? Start here with our complete guide to bathroom tile.

Soak Up Some Color

Want to amp up your tub design? Just add a splash of color. Deep green tiles like the ones above showcase handcrafted color variation, while warm wood cabinetry adds an organic look.

Yellow can help to wake up your morning routine, like this rustic chartreuse square tile. Consider adding shelving behind your tub for extra storage space.

If your personal style has an eclectic edge, consider small mosaic tiles in a bright color like aqua blue for an eye-catching bathroom refresh and major spa vibes.

Stay Soft and Neutral

A textured neutral tile can help to create a calming atmosphere while making it easy to swap out bathroom decor like colorful curtains and towels.

Warm neutrals don't have to be confined to transitional interiors--they can even make for a fresh and contemporary statement wall like this straight set tile install that beautifully anchors the rest of the space.

But that doesn't mean you can't go back to the classics. This gray subway tile is topped off with white molding for ultra timeless appeal.

Freshen Up with White

And let's face it, you can never go wrong with white tile. You can always fall back to subway tile, but why not try a dynamic pattern? This tub's diagonal herringbone tile offers stylish surprise behind the colorful shower curtain.

Although not a true tub surround, this bathroom's small white hexagon tile wainscoting stands alone as a design element, adding a textured touch to the minimalist space.

What good is white if you can't mix things up? An eclectic blend of square, hexagin, and handpainted tile makes this tub-outfitted bathroom truly unforgettable.
