Expand Your Design Horizons With These Wood Tile Bathroom Ideas

Although it looks beautiful, wood has traditionally been overlooked as a choice for bathroom walls and floors because it doesn’t last long. Even with the extra cost of sealing and resealing, you still can’t get more than a few years out of it. Luckily, there’s a way to get the wood bathroom of your dreams without worrying about its durability. The solution is to use wood tiles. They look just like wood but last as long as tiles. They are also way easier to clean compared to wood floors and also tend to be cheaper. It is very popular in rustic-styled bathrooms, but it can be incorporated into any other style. There are many lovely wood tile bathrooms out there, so take a look and get some ideas for your own home.

1. Wood Tile Bathroom Floor And Wall

Many times, people prefer to only use wood tile for either their floor or walls. This is because they’re worried about it looking overwhelming. The secret is to pick a shade you love. This bathroom has wood tiles on both its wall and floor and uses the same wood pattern and shade. It also has a wooden vanity. There is an introduction of darker colors with the shower pole and accessories, which helps to provide a bit of variation needed for balance.


2. Minimalist Wood Tile Bathroom With Gray Marble Tile

Wood tile is a great choice for minimalist bathrooms because of its strong character. This is because minimalist bathrooms can easily start to look drab so there should be something interesting going on in the space. A deviation from the common white color provides the required special effect. Part of the walls can be covered with grey marble and, at times, part of the floor also.


3. Bold Mosaic Floor Tile With Wood Wall Tile

Based on how popular the pairing is, it is obvious that mosaic tile looks good with hardwood floors. It also looks great with wood tiles since there’s very little difference between the look of hardwood and wood tiles. The mosaic tile can have bold patterns, as wood tiles are usually simple and come in either light or dark shades. In this bathroom, wood tile and mosaic tile are used together to highlight the shower area. The mosaic is used for the floor while the wood tiles are installed on the walls.
