Using Bathroom Tile to Decorate Your Bathroom
Tiles are a great way to introduce not only your theme but your color scheme too. In natural dragonflies are many colors, their wings even look like rainbows in some lights – so you have plenty of options available for a base color. Add to that the designers flare and you are spoiled for choice.

Setting the Mood
Dragonflies in your decor can set the mood of a room. Because they are thought of as whimsical and fleeting, decorating with dragonflies can give a room a magical feeling. This works well as a child’s bedroom or playroom area.
On the other hand, you can also use a dragonfly motif for a nature setting. Using varying shades of green, brown, and beige with dragonfly prints is a good combination for a relaxed nature themed room. This will bring the forest to you, so to speak, with enough of a natural feel to make you feel like you are outdoors. You can enhance this effect with natural fibers, and textures in fabrics for upholstery, curtains, and accessories like pillows and throws.
When adding dragonflies to a bathroom specifically, look for wall art, shower curtains, lighting, towels, and toilet seats. You can create the look of dragonflies flitting along the wall with wall decals. And adding decorative tiles with dragonflies into your tiled areas is another way to add whimsy to the bathroom.

More Dragonfly Facts
- Dragonflies are insect who belong to the order Odonata. Experts divide them into three sub-species: the largest true dragonflies called Anisoptera, the smaller damselfly called Zygoptera and Anisozygoptera which seems to be a combination of the first two.
- They are easily recognisable as having large eyes, small antennae, slim segmented bodies, and 4 thin membranous wing in sets of 2. In dragonflies the rear pair of wings become broader at the base. Damselfly wings are all the same size.
- Dragonfly eyes are set together close to the top of the head and they can see all around them. Damselflies eyes are situated slightly more to each side of the head.
- They can vary in size from around 1 inch to 6 inches in some species.
- So far something like 5680 different species of dragonfly have been recorded world-wide.
- Dragonfly eyes are multifaceted. This means they can see in every direction – so they sense even tiny movements – all the better for hunting prey.
- They eat mosquitoes and other pests which makes them a great addition to your garden. Some people such as the Burmese, regularly release dragonfly nymphs into local water to keep down the population of mosquitoes.
- The twin sets of wings gives the dragonflies the ability to fly in all sort of ways. They can hoover, fly fast or slow, even loop the loop. Their flying ability is one of the reasons they are so much fun to watch.
