The Black-and-White Approach

Black and white is a tried and true classic, so you can never go wrong with this tile option. While the standard checkerboard flooring seems a bit outdated, there are plenty of other routes you can take. These days, black and white tiles come in numerous patterns and styles, from swirling vintage patterns to modern rectangles and diamonds. Check out Michael J. Fox's black and white flooring for inspiration.

If you'd like to utilize black and white, it's easy to blend the shades into your tile floor. Choose a patterned tile or create your own pattern by mixing and matching different tiles. Better yet, enhance the elegance of your vanity with a matte-black wall behind you mirrors. This really makes the vanity pop as the centerpiece of the room with a noir-traditional, smoky, onyx feel.

Subway Tiles

White subways tiles are the trend for bathrooms right now, and it's easy to see why. The pure white helps the space feel clean and sterile. However, subway tiles also go great as a backsplash in the kitchen

To use subway tile, you can stack it in the ordinary way, or switch to a herringbone or chevron pattern for a more interesting look. If white isn't exactly your vibe, all-black subway tiles are an emerging trend that look smooth and slick on both walls and floors.

A Pop of Color

Who says tile has to be either black or white? Give your room a pop of color! Brighten your wall or even your floor. This is an especially great choice if you're choosing something plainer for the walls or ceiling, such as subway tile. Having a bright floor makes your bathroom or kitchen stand out without investing in as many decorations or accessories.

You'll have a few choices when it comes to the type of tile, including bright grid tiles. However, you may simply opt to have your tiles custom-made for a truly unique atmosphere.

Go All Out

At the end of the day, it's your space, so don't be afraid to mix sizes or go all out. Tile is a great accessory and there are no limits as to how it can be used. This bathroom even tiled the shower ceiling.

Mix old and new, neutral and color, rectangular and hexagonal - the choice is yours. All of these tile trends afford homeowners a lot of flexibility in their choices.
