Basically, that fast wearing out of the paint will compel you to re-paint your bathroom repeatedly which can be a lot of expenses. With tiles, you can have them for years. You don't have to replace them every now and then. All you have to do is just maintain their decorative looks.
Tiles make a wonderful choice for bathrooms because they are easily cleaned and sanitized and they are very hard to scratch or chip. If the proper cleaning products are used on them, they will remain shiny and new looking for decades. Try to choose colors and styles of tile that will serve as a great background and tiles that will allow you to change your bathroom décor without having to replace the tile. Don't be afraid of creating patterns or designs with contrasting colors or even tiles that are subtly different.
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.
Very common mistake that most people make is that they spend many bucks for buying beautiful curtains and accessories. You must realize the fact that, having a great bathroom shower tile idea can provide a wonderful ambience to your bathroom at a much lower cost. Choosing the right color of the shower tiles will depend on the size of the bathroom. If the size of the bathroom is small, it is preferred to use light color tiles, as due to more reflection of light, the bathroom will seem to look bigger.
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.
