Tub Surround Ideas to Whet Your Design Creativity

Last Updated on May 27, 2022

Does your bathtub beckon you after a long day, or does it leave much to be desired? Soaking in a bathtub can be one of life’s most relaxing moments—when you can escape from your busy lifestyle and bask in the warmth of bubbly goodness. If you find yourself opting for a quick shower instead of retreating to a soothing bath, it may be time to upgrade your tub with a tub surround. It might just be the answer to creating a spa-like retreat in your home while giving you the pampering you deserve. Are you ready to take your bathtub to the next level? Here’s what you need to know.

What is a bathtub surround?

Think of a bathtub surround as a backsplash for your tub. The possibilities are endless. Some homeowners choose to protect the walls just above the tub while others go all out to create works of art and practicality around their bathtubs. While some may choose to use tile for their tub surrounds, the latest trends are diving into more sophisticated looks using mosaic tiles and solid surface materials.

Get ready to take your bathtub remodel to the next level! The countless design choices can get a little overwhelming. With so many styles and materials to choose from, where do you start? To help you kickstart your planning, here are some beautiful tile tub surround ideas from Granite and TREND Transformations to whet your appetite and inspire your design creativity.

Classic Design

To achieve a classic and timeless look for your tub, choose large, neutral tiles for a stunning visual. You can carry the tiles up the full length of the wall or stop part way up.

At Granite and TREND Transformations, we have multiple product lines perfectly suited to achieve this elegant tub surround. Peruse our concrete collection or quartz collection for color.

Marble-inspired Elegance

Marble is elegant and timeless. It’s the perfect way to enhance even the smallest of bathroom spaces. Plus, the possibilities are endless! You can choose to keep solid tiling to showcase the unique veining, or you can accent your tub surround using mosaic tiles.

With marble from Granite and TREND Transformations, you can achieve this look without installing traditionally soft and porous marble. Our marble collection is made from quartz and recycled glass, and will hold up beautifully to bathroom use.

A Work of Art

Let your creativity run wild with a mosaic tub surround and create a show-stopping work of art that never goes out of style. Multi-colored mosaic tiles are an elegant backdrop to soothe your senses and beckon you after a long day. Additionally, mosaic tiles offer a wide range of options to suit every style. So whether you love bright colors or prefer more muted and neutral tones, you will find the perfect fit!

With the wide range of patterns, colors, and styles found in the Granite and TREND Transformations’ mosaic tile collection, you have ample choices. Let your imagination guide you and you’re sure to find the perfect mosaic tiles for your space!
