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.
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.
A design, color, texture shape and size can make or break your whole concept. Make sure that you choose the right tile. Where you want to use a certain tile will also determine what kind of tile will be used. For shower or tub stall edging, a decorative bathroom tile design can be used. For the sink backsplash, you can make a tile design that can be the focal point of your bathroom.Walls can also be laid with tile design that can be blended with the shower stall and backsplash tile design. When choosing bathroom tile to add pizazz to the design, it's important to keep the focus on the overall look of the bathroom and not the single design.
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.
You can also use bathroom tiles made of stone or mosaic. Stone flooring may be more expensive but they last long. Mosaic tiles are made using glass, old tiles, pebbles etc and add texture and color to the bathroom.
If you like wooden floors, go in for hardwood floors. They look stylish and elegant when combined with accessories like potted plants, mirrors and bathroom rugs. However, they require extensive maintenance. Bamboo flooring is also a good idea. It is cheaper and requires less maintenance though it adds the same natural and cool look to the room.
