ideas for white subway tile in tub area. unique layout options?

janniemacApril 16, 2012

Hi-

I decided I wanted to do just white beveled subway tile in my tub area, didn't want to use any color accents here. BUT-I would like to do something to add a bit of interest, but what?? Maybe a framed inset of the subways in a Herringbone pattern?? Does anyone have pictures of creative layouts using all the same tile? I did search the forum but didn't really find much on this... Thanks!!

Ann Sack's Savoy Line has a pretty Herringbone mosaic. Maybe you'd like to peek at it for consideration.

I have not done it personally but love herringbone and am planning on incorporating in somehow when we redo our master bath one day. I love that picture from houzz. I have that same picture saved. What about doing 3x6 herringbone all over in the tub shower area. The labor would probably be a bit more but that would definitely make it interesting and beautiful.
