We have a lot of fun projects happening right now between my own home renovation, the Evergreen project, a couple of client remodels and a cabin my parents recently bought and are renovating (more on that soon!). I’ve been non-stop shopping for tile for months now with all of these projects, and at this point I’m dreaming about tile! (There could be worse things to dream about though, am I right?) Lowe’s invited me to share some of my favorite tile picks and how I like to approach the bathroom design process. I absolutely love all the gorgeous tiles they have right now (and a few of these made my JAW DROP in person!!).
Before I share my design planning process for bathrooms, let’s jump right to the good stuff – a few of my favorite Lowe’s tile finds! I have to say though, there were too many to list them all here! There are SO many goodies on the site and the prices are incredibly affordable. If you’re looking for any tile, check out this selection here! (Just make sure you don’t miss out on seeing this AMAZING marble and brass inlay tile!! It’s insane!!!)
Okay, so when I’m designing a space, I like to pull out tile and stone samples, little accessories, scraps of fabric and other items that can represent a color story or a certain texture I’d like to incorporate into the space. I lay them on a white backdrop and snap a photo to keep in my phone. It sounds silly, but it only takes a few minutes, it’s a fun little creative exercise and it ends up acting as a roadmap for me that I can reference back as I make purchases for the space. These warm, earthy flat lays are for a client who lives in a California style rancher.
Here’s another flat lay from the same house. Items like the little coral plastic ring represent just a color I’d like to incorporate in the bathroom, maybe in a vintage rug or hand towels. Also, CAN YOU EVEN HANDLE the brass and marble tile we’re planning to use on the walls? Usually when people have brass inlay pieces like this, the tile installer has to cut down brass schluter strips by hand – a SUPER expensive and labor-intensive process! That’s why I was completely shocked by the price of this tile!
For the kids bathroom, I LOVE the idea of this gorgeous moody green blue fireclay like tile all over the walls and this super sweet gray penny tile on the shower floor. Wouldn’t the super affordable green patterned tile be the perfect fun accent to the space?
Let me know if you guys end up trying my little flat lay trick! It really does help create a visual checklist for a space. It’s great that you can pop into Lowe’s and quickly buy a single sheet of any of their tile (and there’s even more tiles in their online selection!) so you can test the color and size in your space before committing. I hope you look around at their selection – they have so many pretty options right now!
