Floor tile ideas for the kitchen would be the same with those for the bathroom. Kitchen tiles must be easy to clean and slip-free. Stains due to food preparation and cleaning of cooking wares abound in the kitchen. Ceramic tiles are fit for such an atmosphere. With a mop sweep, all the stains could be gone without posing much harm to the kitchen users.
Tiles can add amazing style and character to your bathroom and they also prove to be an ideal material due to its water resistant properties. You can select from sleek to classy to sassy and fun bathroom tile ideas as per your liking and sense of style. For small sized bathrooms, light colored tiles prove to the perfect choice as they open up the space and make them appear larger then their actual size. Pastel and muted tiles can be selected to maximize the available space.
Bathroom tile ideas would usually be instigated from what people see from visiting other homes or through suggested home designing. In some cases, the design will be centered on simplicity and uniformity; however, this is not always the case. Bathroom tiles can focus on accenting any one area or product in your bathroom, add splashes of color or detailed patterns, or do just about anything that you want, in the way of decorating. There are some people who have ideas that combine 2 or 3 tile designs. Normally, the outcome would be extravagant and it really all depends on how people would project them as a whole.
One popular solution for a bathroom is to create a wet room, which is basically a walk in shower room that is much more comfortable than the enclosed shower types. These can be created to suit virtually any room type as long as a few simple rules are followed. The room will need to be waterproofed (tanked) to provide a seal and water leaking downstairs or next door. The tiles will need to have falls created if they don't already exist in the substrate, to allow the water to drain and the water to not pool in an area.
If you decide to go in for plain white or off-white colored tiles for your bathroom wall, you can liven up the ensemble by including dark colored tiles like red, blue or green ones in the middle. It need not follow a certain pattern. Just include the colored tiles at random positions. This will add a dash of color to your bathroom. Another idea is to incorporate tiles with paintings or prints in between plain white ones. For instance a few tiles with pretty floral prints in between pale pink or white tiles give a delicate, feminine touch to the bathroom. You can also choose to incorporate a single large tile with a painting or design in the middle and surround it with plain colored tiles.
People that have bathroom tiles ideas may consider mosaics as their tile choice as they have a timeless quality and suit almost any available space. They are available in glass type finishes, porcelain, natural stone and in various sizes. Because of the nature of mosaic, care will need to be taken when fixing them to avoid adhesive squeezing up through the joints and achieving contact with the adhesive of every piece of tile is quite difficult if inexperienced. Remember if using mosaics in a wet area that has no tanking system installed, that there is a higher potential for water to ingress into a water sensitive substrate and cause a potential failure.
