If you're searching for walk in shower tile ideas,  imaging showering in the seclusion of a natural bamboo grove. The fresh smells of the forest and open air fill your lungs and rejuvenate your spirit. Bring these Biophillic Design sensations to the comfort and privacy of your own bathroom with our bamboo shower artistic tiles. The walk in shower tile pattern consists of four 7 x 12 inch art tiles that seam together both vertically and horizontally, creating a continuous pattern.

Walk in Shower Tile Ideas that invigorate your spirit!

The Bamboo Forest tile pattern can be used to completely realize your walk in shower tile ideas. Tile from floor to ceiling, creating the illusion that you are standing in the middle of a bamboo thicket.  Or, use the bamboo pattern more selectively, by tiling one wall with a few vertical rows of bamboo. This creates the illusion of a passageway in your shower to a hidden bamboo forest. Either way, including these beautiful handmade tiles in your shower tile ideas will transform showering into an invigorating and stimulating ritual. Showering should be a fun celebration, not a mundane activity. Consider the extra cost of these unique handmade tiles as an investment in your daily aesthetic sensibility. You are worth it!

Available Glaze Colors 

  • Stone Gray
  • Taupe
  • Sage
  • Wicker

Consider the bamboo patterned tile flanked by rows of vertically oriented Border and Field Tile, glazed in a matching glaze color. Note: We mix all of our glazes in house and are always testing new color ideas. If you would like a different color from the options listed, please reach out by phone or email. We love a glaze challenge!

Installation Tips

Choosing the right grout color is an important design element to consider. We recommend matching a midtone value from our  tiles, not too dark, not too light. The installation pictured below was done with Daltile's Natural Gray Grout. 

We recommend laying out the installation on the floor to verify that you've chosen the correct alignment. Space your tiles close to one another, to create thin grout lines for a more sealess pattern. We're here to help. If you have questions about anything, don't hesitate to ask!

Oriental Wave Tile Pattern


Based on the traditional Japanese Hokusai prints and paintings, this versatile pattern can be used in a variety of applications. Pictured here in a kaleidoscopic orientation, this tile can inspire you to play and have fun with your walk in shower ideas. Use it in a single row as a simple backsplash, or fill your entire shower with the swirling energy of the ocean! Whether your shower plans involve a full floor to ceiling use of patterned decorative tile, or just a band of color and pattern, this tile can accommodate.

The depth and fluidity of ocean waves are captured in the translucent glaze of this tile. The pattern is not printed on the tile, rather it is embossed into the wet porcelain clay while the tile is still wet. The subtle texture that is left behind is then flooded with tinted turquoise, deep blue or stone gray glaze. In the kiln firing, the glaze melts and pools into the texture, leaving behind varying thicknesses. This is what creates the varying shades of color. All of our glaze recipes are mixed in house in our Missoula, Montana studio. They are the result of years of testing to achieve the subtle color variations, which are derived from natural oxides from the earth, such as copper and cobalt. These deep rich colors are not available anywhere else.

To complete your walk in shower ideas, consider our Border and Field Tile, which can be glazed in a matching glaze color to our patterned tile. This tile is also compatible with most commercial tile. Please note however, that the actual size of each tile is 5 7/8" x  5 7/8", which is slightly smaller than most true 6" x 6" tile. The Oriental Wave tile can also be easily cut on an ordinary tile wet saw, making installation a breeze.
