Going for white shower tiles for a small bathroom is a perfect choice because the white color makes this space look bigger. The choice of long white subway tile to mimic the shiplap walls in this farmhouse-style bathroom creates a uniformed look for this space.

To add contrast to the whole look the frame of the shower glass is in matte black, and the floor cementine tiles in a black and white pattern create a unique moment for this bathroom. The use of a narrow metal blanket ladder as a towel rack is a perfect hack for a small bathroom without storage space.

2. Forest green shower tile

When Molly was designing her bathroom she followed the rule: pick one thing you love and design off of that. It is obvious what her choice was, the forest green tiles in the back of the shower. Having the sidewalls of the shower tiled with white subway tile make this bathroom feel open warm and inviting.

Having vertical shiplap walls in the color forest green which is very similar to the shower tile she chose makes this side of the bathroom look like one big accent wall.
