For example you can highlight the shower section with bright colored tiles, at the same time the tiles in the bathtub could be of cooler tones. This develops an appealing contrast. At the same time the wall adjoining the bathtub could be made of graphic or pictures tiles to make it interesting. The tiles near the basin area should be of muted colors to enhance relaxation.
