Condo and development housing bathrooms are usually turned over in a bare state, with tiles laid only on the floor and in the shower area—and it’s usually just in white. It’s probably hard to imagine that you can actually transform a plain loo into a stylish bathroom, but it is possible, if you choose the right tile. Complete your bathroom makeover with these seven suggestions:

1. If you want a break from those ubiquitous white subway tiles but still want a clean, vintage look, then go for large hexagons. This shape also helps make a small bathroom look bigger.
