Not only are there are thousands of different types of tiles, but there are dozens of colors of tile grout. This added versatility means that you could use the same tile on the floor as on the walls, but by changing the color of the grout, you can achieve two completely different effects.
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.
Some different bathroom floor tiles ideas include tiling your bathroom with tiles made of cork, bamboo or hardwood. Cork flooring gives your bathroom a different texture. They are easy to maintain and stays warm even in winter. If you choose to do the bathroom tile using cork, add some potted plants and use fixtures with a metal finish to give a cool and natural look.
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.
Another important aspect of tiling small bathrooms is tiling the shower or bath area differently. The tiles in the shower area should match the tiles in the rest of the bathroom. The tiles in the shower area can be of a different color or pattern from that of the rest of the bathroom. Otherwise you can use the same tiles but lay them out in a different arrangement. The idea is to demarcate the bath area without being too obvious.
Adding pizazz to your bathroom with new tile ideas can be done in two ways. You can either tile the entire bathroom or just a portion of it. Whatever you choose, make sure that the tile design suits your needs as well as the look you want to achieve. If you have already decided on a design, texture and color, make sure that they come in from the same batch so that you can avoid a difference in textures, sizes or quality of the tiles you are purchasing. Apart from that, you can order you can order a few samples before buying so that you can make sure that your selection will fit into your overall design scheme or not.
