Geometric motifs are one of the hottest trends in interior design. Skilfully used in the bathroom will bring to it a breath of modernity and originality. The geometry can be drawn with a line, painted in colour, and impressed with a three-dimensional structure, in a micro or macro scale. Today, we present 6 methods of applying geometric motifs in the bathroom, which will give it a unique and original look.


Method 1. One-coloured geometric structure

White tiles are a bathroom banker – a choice which you can always bet on. White introduces cleanliness, brightness, and optical enlargement to the interior – the higher, the more glossy the surface of the tiles.

White tiles do not have to be boring – geometric motif comes into action here! This time it’s not the colour, but the structure which will bring this element inside. Thanks to the structures on the one-coloured tiles, you can shape the interior in an interesting way. One of the most fashionable forms are brick rectangles. The timeless shape of bricks allows for arranging interiors in a variety of styles: classic, industrial, modern, minimalist, glamor, and retro.

The form of bricks can be of an ordering nature, when the bricks are arranged horizontally, and dynamic one, when they are assembled in herringbone. Both ways are extremely effective.

Modern bathroom classics: wall white tiles in the form of bricks arranged in herringbone and impressive geometric floor.

White brick tiles play the main role in the loft bathroom.

White tiles with geometric structure in the shape of rhombuses will look great in both classic and modern bathrooms.

Method 2. Colour contrasts + clear, diverse figures.

Black and white is the strongest and at the same time most effective contrast present in the applied art since always. Monochrome combinations, based on the use of white, black and grey, is one of the tried and tested methods for an elegant bathroom. Geometric forms find themselves there perfectly, introducing unusual and hypnotizing impressions to the eye.

When designing a bathroom with such expressive “special effects”, it is worth balancing the proportions so that the final result will not be overwhelming for users. If, for example, the floor is very strong in expression, for the balance on the walls, one-coloured tiles can be placed – smooth or structural (however “calmer” than the floor).

Small, square tiles with black and white stripes, allow you to create eye-catching geometric patterns.

A strong pattern on the floor, based on the contrasts of white, grey, and black plus more delicate wall tiles is a recipe for a fashionable interior.

Method 3. Geometric motifs in the mini and in the maxi version

Monochrome combinations of black and white can also appear in other scenes, using geometric motifs on a large and quite a tiny scale. Each time the effect will be different and each time equally interesting. White micro-hexagons on black glossy tiles reflecting light like in a mirror can be combined with large structural honeycombs on white ceramics and a wood-imitating floor. Unusual visual impression – guaranteed.

The mirror surface of the black tiles reflects the image, and the tiny hexagons create a delicate mesh effect. This is the perfect example of geometry in the mini version.

Large hexagons on black and white tiles impressively decorate the monochrome bathroom.

Method 4. Irregular geometric motifs in subdued colours

Geometry does not always have to assume typical, known forms of lines, circles, triangles, rectangles or rhombuses. Irregular shapes, combining elements of various figures, can also be the basis of interesting arrangements.

To the bathroom in neutral beige colours, you can add a bit of expression, decorating it with subtle structural geometric motifs. Thanks to them, the interior becomes really interesting.

The delicate arabesque structure in bright colours subtly adorns the bathroom.

Irregular, unclosed triangles, and trapezoids bring geometrical dynamics to a subdued in colour, classic bathroom.

Method 5. Geometry in white version

We already know almost everything about white tiles in the bathroom and their regular structures. Now we will show a slightly different form of white tiles with geometric motifs. White has many shades – from crystal clear to darker shades with an admixture of different colours. Shades of ivory and silver are among the most effective ones. When we add to them a very delicate geometric pattern – white, but properly complemented with silvery and slightly grey elements – we can introduce the effect of sparkling freshness into the bathroom.

Regularly crossing thin lines form a subtle decoration of the bathroom.

Delicate geometric patterns above the basin are interestingly combined with leaf motifs and graphite hexagons in the walk-in cabin.

Method 6. Subtle colour shading, i.e. an ombre effect

We have not exhausted the entire range of fashionable bathroom geometry yet ? An option worth considering may also be light tiles with printed modernist patterns in shades of white, grey, and beige, creating a subtle ombre effect, i.e. a gentle colour shading. Mild, powdery shades of base tiles, combined with a delicate shading of decorations, bring to the bathroom peace in the morning and evening relief before sleep.

The subtlety of powdery shades and the ombre effect will help create a calm bathroom arrangement.


Do you like geometry and want to introduce this theme to your bathroom? You do not know how to do it? You can use one of the following methods:

  1. Try a one-color structure. The geometric motif does not have to be distinguished by a clear colour or print – delicate colours will suffice, on which we will then apply a structure, for example diamonds or bricks. In combination with appropriate lighting, they create unique patterns on the wall.
  2. Apply clear colour contrasts (for instance, black and white) with various geometric motifs to further enhance it.
  3. Test the irregular geometric motifs in the mini and maxi versions – set them side by side or, on the contrary – select only one.
  4. Check irregular geometrical motifs in subdued colours, for example, beige. The calmer base colours, the more crazy you can apply in the interior. But if you prefer delicate colours – you will also find something for yourself.
  5. Bet on effective geometry in white colour version – geometrical motifs can be marked with delicate lines, for example. The interior remains homogeneous in colour, but takes on character thanks to decorations.
  6. Try subtle colour shading (ombre) with modernist geometric decorations.
