Walk-in Shower Tile Ideas That Will Inspire You

We’ve all been guilty of binge watching home improvement reality TV shows, looking at bathroom remodel photo galleries (and even saving them) with the hopes of mocking the stunning stone tile, bathroom cabinets and soaker tub when it comes time to remodel. This article is no different from that – but, we have broken down things you need to know to choose the right shower type and shower tile for your bathroom remodel. We cover:

  • The two most popular shower types
  • Neutral shower designs
  • Bold shower tile designs
  • Bathroom accessory considerations

If you’re ready to get started on choosing bathroom stone tile that will transform your shower, keep reading.

There are two walk-in shower types that are popular in today’s bathroom makeovers:

  • A glass enclosure, with the glass helping create a bright and airy feeling
  • Walk in shower designs without doors. One thing to note about the door less walk in shower is that it does not allow for much privacy.

However, there are many different stone shower floor and wall designs you can create. Before you go tile crazy, it’s important to establish if you’re wanting a shower design with neutral patterns and colors or if you’d like a bold and unique style as the focus of your walk-in shower and bathroom.

Next, you’ll want to account for accessories and plumbing fixtures. Both items will tie the look of your shower together. If you’d like to keep your shower design neutral, opt-in for a circular showerhead. On the opposite end, if you’re wanting to incorporate a contemporary shower design then a square rainfall showerhead will give the space a futuristic feel. Here are other popular bathroom accessory options:

  • Towel holders
  • Towel warmers
  • Robe hooks
  • Bathroom shelves
  • Shower caddies
  • Grab bars
  • Corner or curbed shower seats
  • Soap dishes
  • Sink plumbing fixtures
  • Tub plumbing fixtures
  • Vanity mirrors

Ready for your own amazing walk in shower? Here are a few design ideas to get you started.


Neutral Shower Tile Designs

If you want a shower design that’s neutral with a pop of color, try the look above. You can replace the mosaic shower tiles with a color that compliments the overall color scheme of your bathroom remodel. If you’re not a fan of the brass gold fixtures, you can try oil rubbed bronze shower fixtures.


The tiles in this space are a mixture of vertical and horizontal. The color palette is neutral with porcelain and glass tiles that add a contrast in texture.

Lastly, neutral tones go beyond brow and tan. You can use shades of gray, black and white – and even mix them together. If you’d like to keep with the same color scheme throughout, black oil rubbed bronze shower fixtures can be used.

Bold & Contemporary Shower Tile Designs

Ready to add color to your bathroom remodel without paint? Then colored shower tile is the perfect solution. For a contemporary look add stainless steel or chrome shower fixtures.

You can also include a fun pattern as the focal point of your shower design. The bathroom remodel above features subway tile with an arrow mosaic tile pattern.
