Bathroom shower tiles are a unique way to add a bit of spice to your home's interior design. Skip the traditional white shower and go for a wild, fun design using tile that's unexpected and exciting. This little hidden design touch will also be a surprise for guests.

Heat Map

For a truly unique shower experience, use thermally sensitive glass shower tiles. The tiles sense heat and turn colours based on temperature, so each shower turns into a heat map of different colours. Tiles are clear when not activated, and guests will be surprised to see the walls turn wild colours as they shower.

Chess Board

Turn your shower into a three-sided chess board by alternating black and white shower tiles on all three walls. Use larger tiles, since the dramatic, contrasting effect is not as strong with small ones. The effect will be reminiscent of a retro diner, and can be used with a variety of design schemes, from wild jungle to all black and white.

Bright Colors

For a shower that's guaranteed to wake you up in the morning, go with an energising, wild shade of your favourite colour. Choose tiles in a bright, saturated colour such as chartreuse, orange or fuchsia. The vibrancy will be a shock to your system in the morning, making it easier to wake up and get moving.

Wild Kingdom

For a child's bathroom, an animal-themed shower can be a fun option that will make bath time less of a chore. If your child is interested in a particular animal, start there; if not, consider a safari animal motif, an undersea adventure, horses, or wild mountain animals.

Animal Prints

For a luxurious, unexpected shower tile design, consider using animal-print tiles. Look for tiles in leopard print, zebra or snakeskin patterns. Consider using these tiles as an accent to avoid overdoing the theme. Pair with a coordinating colour to make the printed tiles pop.

Under the Sea

For a continuation of a water theme without overt sea creature prints, use shower tiles in shades of aquamarine, teal, green and blue. Alternate colours with large tiles, or create a swirl pattern using smaller tiles for a more subtle, blended effect.

Spa Experience

For a serene, spa-like feeling, decorate your bathroom in pure white and gentle blues. For the shower, find small tiles in one or two shades of pale blue and alternate to create a calming oasis that evokes the feeling of a spa. To complete the look and open up the bathroom, use this type of tile with a clear-glass shower door.
