Fixer Upper host Joanna Gaines chose handmade tile and dry-stacked it—that is, applied it without grout in the spaces between each piece—for a dramatic new look with the quirky style her sister favors.
To lay the groundwork for this modern bathroom, designers started with a neutral color palette that would reflect the natural light let into the space from the skylight above. Then, they added modern wood cabinets and a gray countertop to warm the space. To give the room a touch of personality, a gray, black and white penny round tile backsplash was added, and a gray and white chevron floor was laid. In the shower area, the walls are covered in off-white tile with a penny round tile inset that matches the backsplash to tie the space together.
Look closely -- this is a bathroom! The centrally-located shower separates the sink area from the commode; a bench sits against the side of the shower's tile enclosure. A unique feature is the walnut floors in the bath, carried in from the rest of the home. High windows provide light without sacrificing privacy, and white paint on the ceilings make them feel even loftier.
This sleek bathroom design features a smooth brown tile shower with white fixtures and two niches to store all of your shower essentials. The vanity includes a solid white countertop and a white faucet to complete the clean design.
To give the design in this newly remodeled bathroom a touch of dimension and pizzaz, designers created an accent wall of decorative tile. The tile was purchased from Wayfair and is called "Illica" ceramic.
After taking this dated mid-century bathroom down to the studs, the homeowners opted for a more modern look. Adding an angular toilet and bath fixtures, as well as the stacked subway tile gives this guest bath a clean, modern vibe.
