Choosing the best tile option for your bathroom project can sometimes be a bit overwhelming. Nicholas Tile and bath has the design background to assist you in making the best choice for your bathroom, let’s go over a few options.
• Stone – Stone tiles are considered to be among some of the most beautiful options available. Also, they are very durable and that is why they are great for a heavy duty room like the bathroom. The problems with these though are that they are heavy and they are costlier than most tile options.
• Porcelain – Porcelain tiles are also good options to consider. They are water resistant and that is what makes them perfect for the bathroom. Even moisture cannot damage them. Aside from this quality, porcelain tiles are also affordable and they come in very beautiful colors.
• Ceramic – Ceramic tiles are great for the bathroom in that they resist wears and scratches when protected with glaze. So if you are looking for a tile that can retain their texture and beauty for a long time, this is a good option for you.
• Glass – Glass tiles are among the most expensive bathroom tile options. This is majorly because of their beauty. Even though glass tiles seem like they are slippery, they are not. They are textured for roughness and that is why they are great for a wet room like the bathroom.
Beauty should not only be your basis when looking for some good bathroom tiles to replace your damaged ones. Aside from aesthetics you should also consider the factors of price, installation, maintenance, and comfort. If you find a tile option that has scored numerous points in these factors, then that is the option you should go for.
Prepare for details…
You might want to add details to your walls. Examples of details include recessed medicine cabinets, shampoo niches, etc. You might even want to add other more complicated details such as lighting or even vent fans. Make sure you properly plan where these would be situated and have them marked, we recommend using painting tape. Once your details have been marked, your walls are ready for renovation. Since the areas where your details will be situated are marked, the tradespeople such as the plumbers and the electric contractors would consider them.
Be careful with your tile sizes…
When planning out how the tiles would be laid out in your bathroom, you have to make sure that you have the right tile sizes in mind. It is important to get some samples of tiles that you would use for your bathroom so you are sure as to what their actual sizes are. Also, unless you have a very spacious bathroom, it is not practical to go for huge tiles. You can always go for small tiles since these are more appropriate for the bathroom. Experts recommend that tiles should not be more than four inches in size. It can be quite hard to fit large tiles in bathrooms.
Be careful with your colors…
Indeed, tiles come in a variety of colors and designs. But sometimes, because of the vast availability of tiles, a lot of people commit the mistake of using too many color in their bathroom. That is something that you should definitely avoid. Not only can getting multiple color tiles be tiresome and costly. Doing so can also ruin the aesthetic appeal of the bathroom. You might want to consider a neutral background color. Add a few splashes of accents here and there but make sure there are not strong contrasting color since these can definitely be unsightly.
