Decorative tile in the bathroom is not only beautiful but it is easy to clean.  For a room that is often filled with steam and wet surfaces, tile can be a highly functional surface.  Tile is durable and can be easily installed, unless there are intricate patterns involved or tight spaces.  For example, if you decide to tile the area around the toilet, this can be a bit more challenging.

The great decorative benefit of tile is that you can use it to trim or accent certain areas.  Behind the sink or around the edges of a shower are a few places you may want to have accent tiles.  You can install tile in the shower or on a countertop as well.

Natural stone tile, such as travertine, marble and slate, can bring a refined look to the bathroom.  Trim natural tile with the addition of glossy glass or ceramic tile accents for a custom look.  The modern bathroom is the ideal space for natural stone tile.
