Elegance, sophistication and an overall sleek look are all always synonymous with black and white tones. Whether you incorporate specific shapes or install random patterns, use black and white subway tiles to create designs for a modern bathroom. As well as squares and octagons, subway tiles come in basic rectangles.
Row or Horizontal Designs
Make your entire wall is filled with stripes by creating a row of white tiles followed by a row of black tiles. To create more diversity and texture, start with the opposite-color tile when you begin the next wall or for a more uniform appearance you can follow the same striping pattern from the first wall. It is good when row patterns is extended to the bathtub or shower area; begin with the opposite-color tile or simply follow either the same pattern as the walls. If the fixture will accommodate the treatment, you can opt to further extend the row pattern onto the bathroom vanity.
Arrange your black and white subway tiles to create an octagon shapes. Take the black tile as the backgrounds and make large white octagons or conversely white backgrounds surrounded by large black octagons. Solid white or black tiles only will be featuring by do this on opposing-facing walls with other walls. Create more walls in symmetrical patterns or numerous small octagons all over one or even more random design. You can create octagons as wall perimeters or opt to create octagons in the corner only. Use octagon shapes if you are going for more of a mosaic look or use tiles already shaped like octagons because this shape will require some creative tilling.
By using black tiles, you can create design on bathroom walls to make squares across the middle of the walls in horizontal patterns with white tile backgrounds or vice versa. The patterns would be made as large or small as desired, or you can consider the alternative between small and large squares. Tiles for square could be installed in vertical or diagonal patterns as well.
Layer squares for a more complex look. For example, on a black tile wall, you can create white squares and place a black tile in the center of every other square. You may also use the squares as frame plain, with all-purpose adhesive, lightweight mirrors attached to the wall.
If nonsymmetrical, create an original look by installing black and white tiles with randomly placed, black-and-white tile bathroom. You can also place two white tiles in a row followed by three black tiles, one white tile for every three black tiles and so on in purpose to making patterns. Additionally, with either tile or the other as the background, create the “X” shapes, or go a step further and make triangles or stars. Mosaic patters on mirror frames could be formed as well by smaller versions of black and white tiles. When tiling the bathroom floor, create start and triangles should have to take into your consideration.
