Tips For Choosing Bathroom Tiles


Whether they’re hexagonal, striped or grey bathroom tiles, there’s a lot of options when it comes to picking a tile for you bathroom. So how do you find the perfect tile for you? Here’s some tips to help you get started. Don’t be afraid to break the rules a little; remember, this is for your bathroom.

Get the must tile have first

Whenever we start renovating a bathroom, we usually have that one type of tile we dream of getting and putting in the design. Maybe it’s uniquely-accented grey bathroom tiles, or something simple, but timeless, like white subway tiles. Regardless, you want that dream tile; get it, and use it as the starting point for the rest of your design.

No more than 3 tiles

Using the must have tiles, choose what other tiles you want to include your design. If your must have is a really unique colour or pattern that pops up and it’ll be the focus of your design, then use more subtle colours from it to use for your accent tiles. If your must-have is rather plain, then use vibrant colours and patterns for your accent tiles.

Stick to one show stopper

There’s a lot of beautiful tiles available, and the bathroom is the best place to show off a bit of your personality and take some risks, with fun, poppy colours or patterns on tiles. However, if you’re going to be bold, then opt to stick to only one show stopper. This will help create a timeless look that’s worth noting, since, being alone, this show stopper won’t be competing with other elements in the room.

Remember to be practical

Don’t forget, your bathroom needs cleaning and maintenance to stay pretty. That means, when choosing tiles, consider how much of those two things they need. For example, porcelain and ceramic tiles require minimum maintenance, while natural stone tiles tend to need sealing and additional maintenance. They’re more porous, so they hold on to dirt and grime a bit more. If you want the texture of stone, it might be a good idea to use it on the floor or someplace a bit less wet. Glass tile, meanwhile, is exceptionally pretty, but it’s rather slippery, so it doesn’t make for good flooring.
