9 Bathroom Ceramic Tile Ideas for Your Walls

It's no secret we dig the look of ceramic tile in bathrooms. But, seriously, can you blame us? It's super chic and comes in a variety of shapes, colors, sizes, finishes, and styles. We've seen it looking fab on floors across the globe. But why limit yourself? That's right, we're talking about decking out your walls in ceramic tile, too. And to get your creative juices flowing, we've gathered a collection of nine inspiring ideas for your bathroom ceramic tile redux.

1. Aqua

The modern aqua glaze of these ceramic tiles takes center stage in this black and white master bathroom belonging to Chris and Julia from the blog Chris Loves Julia. The combination of the cool, watercolor-esque color and finish and the symmetrical subway tile layout is totally striking.

2. Indigo

This bathroom by SVK Interior Design is contemporary refinement at its best. The inky indigo shade pops against the white walls and medium-tone wood, while the herringbone pattern exudes a quiet sophistication.

3. Semi-Gloss White

This near black and white sanctuary was dreamt up by Elsie from A Beautiful Mess for her Nashville Airbnb. The modern white subway tile balances the black fixtures, creating a bright industrial-style bathroom perfect for grooming and primping.

4. Jade

Let your bohemian spirit run wild and free with these jade green hexagonal tiles. Their geometric shape and rich hue will complement your bathroom's greenery beautifully, creating the perfect oasis to soak your trouble's away in your fancy freestanding tub.

5. Matte White

This relaxing refuge belongs to Jen Pinkston from The Effortless Chic, which is exactly how we would describe this space: effortless and chic. She paired white rectangular wall tile with white terrazzo floor tile, which results in a subtle yet timeless design that instantly puts you at ease.

6. Paprika

Proof that tiny tile can make a major impact. We're obsessed with the spicy paprika hue of this bathroom ceramic tile. And the frameless oval mirror? Swoon!

7. Millennial Pink

Cheerful and bright, the luxurious rosy-hued en suite of Rebecca Judd is a ray of sunshine. We're not sure what we love more, the millennial pink mosaic tile accent walls or the stunning floor-to-ceiling slabs of marble.

8. Satin Black

Chic fish scale tile in satin black adds subtle pizzaz to this space without compromising on an ounce of serenity.

9. Sage

Who wouldn't want to start their day like Mandy Moore? Or at least her houseguests who are lucky enough to use this tranquil setup designed by Sarah Sherman Samuel. Complete with sage-hued ceramic tile walls, a freestanding tub, gold-tone fixtures, and a custom bath tray, what's not to love?
