Contemporary Bathroom Tile Wainscoting

By Kate Riley July 7, 2020

I don’t have any active project in the works right now, because coronavirus but I’ve always loved watching how others are remodeling their spaces in fresh and creative ways. I’ve noticed some modern tile wainscoting installations beyond basic subway tile and they caught my eye.

Wainscoting is a decades old way of making walls more interesting. If you’re looking to remodel your bathroom anytime in the future, here are a few contemporary tile wainscoting installations to give your space that wow factor.

  1. Oh my gosh, bathroom envy happening for me right now! I especially like the vintage retro of that pink tile and when you tie it together with the round mirrors- it really updates it in the best way! Do you know if that tile is available for purchase? I just got my tile and grout professionally cleaned and it looks almost identical to that after the cleaning! Thinking about redoing the half bath to match it!

  2. These are all so pretty! We will be remodeling our master bath soon, and I love the inspiration in these pictures! Thank you.

  3. Hi Kate,

    I was looking for an update on your master bathroom remodel from the Nov. 2018 post. I can’t seem to find it. Did you every remodel your master bath?
