Tiles in Southwestern Design
Tiles are critical in Southwestern designs, especially for the master bathroom. It’s common to use tiles for both the floors and walls, and it’s safe to experiment with the tiles you like best. But, terra-cotta tiles are the most popular in this style, even though they are one of the least-used options in the bathrooms we analyzed. Terra-cotta tiles were found on the walls of 0.21% of the 259,595 bathrooms analyzed. These tiles not only mimic the style of the old West and Mexican culture, but they also keep the bathroom cool, even in hot areas.
Southwestern Master Bathroom Color Schemes
You can go as subtle or as bold as you’d like with a Southwestern bathroom. It’s most common to see shades of brown and beige with this style, as it takes inspiration from areas that survive in heat and those that are set in landscapes of desert, rocks, and beautiful sunsets.
But, you can also go more bold with blue, yellow, red, and orange, drawing inspiration from traditional Mexican architecture. A bright-colored foot rug or an accent wall with a mural can be a good way to incorporate color without going overboard. Mosaic tiles lining the walls or shower can also add a splash of color.
Traditional Southwestern designs often incorporate wall lighting with the use of sconces that create a calming environment. Sconces with curved designs mirror some traditional Southwestern design elements, and those made of iron or other metals are perfect for this style. Large windows are also popular in this style to create as much natural light as possible. If you don’t have adequate wall space to add enough wall lights to brighten the room, recessed lighting can fill in the gaps between wall light and natural light
