Everyone prioritizes hygiene in the bathroom, so easy-to-clean, stain-resistant, and bacteria-resistant ceramic tile is a natural choice for both wall and floor. Choosing tiles for a bathroom may be a daunting task, with thousands of options in terms of design, size, color, and material – so we’ve put up a guide to help you find the tile that best suits your style.
With every bathroom renovation, there are three areas that we should focus on style, budget, and function.
When it comes to tiling, the interior walls of your shower enclosure don’t have to match the rest of your bathroom. Why not go for a different color or perhaps a different material? Blacks, browns, and greys, as well as light blues or contrasting whites, could all work well. You can even go with subway tiles.
While floor tiles are more durable than wall tiles, they don’t have to be uninteresting. Indeed, you can now use wood-effect tiles to give your flooring a rustic and aged appearance. If you want a monochrome bathroom, use basic black and white bathroom tiles to create a fun chessboard theme. Mosaic tiles can be utilized to inlay intriguing patterns into what would otherwise be a very dull floor space if you’re feeling especially creative.
Keep in mind the overall budget for renovating the bathroom while selecting tiles. Apart from tiles cost, there are other material costs such as adhesive to install tiles, cement, and grout or epoxy.
Labor charges for some fancy tiles can be more than normal as it takes more time and expertise to install those tiles.
The appearance and functionality of tiles depend a lot on how they are laid out. Choosing the right adhesive plays an important role in preventing the water or moisture from penetrating the flooring. A lot depends on the tiler too; an experienced tiler can bring your design to life!
To achieve a cohesive aesthetic, make sure the tiles on your wall and the tiles on your floor are in sync.
Order your samples from The Tiles House to test them. Check for flatness by placing the tile on a level surface – there should be no curve. A clear sound indicates high quality so, try knocking on the tiles.
