For the last few decades, homeowners have been renovating their bathrooms to get rid of pastel bathroom tiles. Pale greens, blues, and pinks once covered the surface of every shower and sink in the U.S. during the 1940s and ’50s.

Now colorful bathroom tiles may just be making a comeback. This may come as a surprise for those who’ve cringed their way through outdated bathrooms during their house-hunting phase. But don’t worry, these aren’t your grandma’s bathroom tiles.

Why are colorful bathroom tiles coming back?

It’s no surprise homeowners eventually kicked the colorful bathroom tile trend. Pastels were everywhere and in every house, and eventually, we got tired of it and began renovating bathrooms in neutral colors and pristine whites.

But just like how we got tired of pastels, it seems like we’re now getting tired of neutrals. Trends in the last decade have included white subway tiles and shiplap; homeowners are looking and craving for interiors that don’t necessarily look like every Pinterest post.

Are we headed back to the pastel generation?

Fortunately, despite colorful bathroom tiles becoming mainstream again, the same pastel tones of the past are staying in the ’50s. Today’s homeowners are choosing to get creative with dialed-up color saturation in emerald green, deep blues, deep rose pink, and even lavender.

What’s more, the tile isn’t going through the entire bathroom like it used to. Many homeowners and designers are leaving the colorful tile in the shower or leading from the shower to behind the sink. Full-colored bathrooms have yet to make any kind of comeback anytime soon.

If you don’t want to make a full commitment to a master bathroom renovation with colorful tile, consider trying it out with a hall bathroom renovation. This way, you get to experiment with color and your guests get to be surprised by the new design.
