Most people do not like the idea of tiling their bathroom walls from floor to ceiling. Your bathroom will end up looking like a public restroom. The best idea is to tile the walls unto eye level or a little more. You can give borders to the tile arrangement. White tiles bordered by tiles in another color like red or blue looks good. You can also use different colored tiles to create a border. Patterned tiles also make good borders for an assembly of plain tiles. Border tiles ought to be thinner than the tiles that make up the body f the wall.
Bathrooms today are not limited in their tile choices to plain white, square, glazed ceramic tiles as they used to be. Today, there are literally thousands of different styles and sizes of bathroom tile ideas and choices. Ceramic is not the only material, either. Tiles are now readily available in travertine, sandstone, or marble just to name a few.
If we are searching for the truly unique yet innovative design, glass tiles could be the answer. Glass tiles appear in some colours and may look semi-transparent, shimmering, and reflective. In growth to glass, hand decorated tiles also give that unique innovative design. Hand decorating our tiles or having anyone else decorate them to our designations guarantees that our bathroom will display that unique modern "one of a kind" design.
Another area that you can add some tile work to is the countertop. By adding tile here as well as the walls and floor, you can achieve a room that looks elegant and well put together. Choose tile in complementary colors, but vary the textures and the sizes of the tiles to please the eye and to add different layers.
The tiles you use in your bathroom are an essential part of its decor. Wall tiles especially affect the overall ambiance of the bathroom. They can make a bathroom look colorful and vibrant or dull and staid. If you are looking for bathroom wall tile ideas, you have a lot to choose from. You can cover the entire wall with tiles or you can decide to tile only the wall in the shower areas or you can cover half the wall with tiles and the remaining with paint. Whichever you choose, make sure that the tiles go well with the overall feel and color scheme of the bathroom.
Playing around with bathroom tile ideas can be entertaining. However, the real deal comes out when homes are constructed and they can see the product of their idea practice. Once they are placed, it will really be a big problem and discomfort if they do not turn out to be the design people wanted. Hence, it would be best to make the most out of the initial tile ideas even before they are placed.
