Before You Hit the Showrooms...

When faced with the seemingly endless, often overwhelming, variety of tile options, try to avoid going hog-wild and choosing an "eclectic" mix of every tile you love. On the other hand, don't go in the opposite direction and settle on a "safe" option like plain white squares (unless that's really what you want). The best plan is to settle on an overriding theme for the entire bathroom, and choose a collection of tile styles that complement or play off of the central theme.
