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.
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.
If you don't have one in mind, there are a lot of sources that can help you. There is the web. You can search over it for ideas that will suit your style. It can help you search for shops and stores too where you can buy tiles with discount. There are also the magazines which are a very handy source. If you prefer professional help, you can hire a bathroom designer.
In the bathroom is where tiles can really be both decorative and functional. As bathrooms are always moist, the use of tiles in them makes them easier to maintain. Compared to paints, tiles in the shower and other parts of the bathroom last longer. If you will just be painting your bathroom, every exposure to water can make the paint wear out easily.
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.
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.
