How To Design A Bathroom Tile Backsplash On The Cheap

Mix Expensive with Mundane

Have an accent tile you love, but is too expensive for your remodeling budget? Try mixing it with a matching, plainer, and less expensive tile. In this way, your backsplash still has the tile wow-factor that you love without having to break the bank by doing the entire backsplash in an expensive tile. Decorative, or jewel toned tiles can be mixed with their more mundane counterparts to great effect!

Play with Orientation

Taking a regular subway tile and turning it diagonal will immediately class up a room, and at a fraction of the cost of expensive artsy tiles. You can even use the same tile as is inset vertically or horizontally on your floor, wainscoting, or shower to give your bathroom a cohesive look.

Create a Focal Point

As much fun as it would be to do an entire shower in a gorgeous, expensive tile, when designing on a budget, this may not be possible. Instead, use your favorite tile in a limited amount to create a beautiful focal point as either a single wall of the shower, a band above the shower, or as a sink backsplash.
