You can also use bathroom tiles made of stone or mosaic. Stone flooring may be more expensive but they last long. Mosaic tiles are made using glass, old tiles, pebbles etc and add texture and color to the bathroom.
If you like wooden floors, go in for hardwood floors. They look stylish and elegant when combined with accessories like potted plants, mirrors and bathroom rugs. However, they require extensive maintenance. Bamboo flooring is also a good idea. It is cheaper and requires less maintenance though it adds the same natural and cool look to the room.
A bathroom is definitely an indispensable and the most important part of the home. It is place where you spend some quiet moment away from all the hustle bustle of life. Thus it is very essential for a bathroom to look perfect, cozy and beautiful. There are various factors which make your bathroom look attractive and tiles are one of them. There are varieties of bathroom tile ideas which can be incorporated not only to enhance the beauty of your bathroom but also to add value to your overall home and to keep the maintenance of the bathroom easy and comfortable.
Tiles also come in a variety of sizes, which when pieced together can create quite a unique look. You can choose to tile the entire wall from floor to ceiling with both the same color and type of tile. Another option is to mix it up and have one color of tile on the bottom of the wall and another color towards the top separated by narrow, textured tile pieces that act as a chair rail.
When coming up with bathroom tiles ideas, you will need to decide first as to which type of tile you want, whether it be ceramic, porcelain, glass or natural stone. You can choose any of the tile types to use in a bathroom installation but you will need to be informed of the implications and characteristics of each tile type to avoid potential failures which are costly and disastrous. Prior to installing your tiles, you will need to evaluate the suitability of the substrate, whether that be the wall or floor and consider if it needs any extra strengthening or waterproofing. The tiles may be too heavy for your wall substrate type, or you may be wanting to use glass tiles which require a different type of adhesive and a professional technique when being fitted to avoid unsightly voids and shadows behind the tiles.
Every bathroom is different and will have different tile laying challenges. You can get thousands of tile ideas from searching through pictures on the Internet or from the countless home improvement books and magazines.
