Elegant minimalist bathrooms such as this one have an aura of calm, with no distractions. Clean and simple lines make the design statement and need no frills. The stone-look ceramic tile flooring squares off with the rectangular large-format tiles that rise to the ceiling. A subtle Greek key-patterned tile runs midway up the wall for a subtle detail. Ceramic tile offers so many features that make it ideal for bathrooms, including slip-resistant options, water resistance, and a surface that is inhospitable to mold, mildew, and bacteria.
