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.
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.
Bathroom themes are also something to consider when picking the ideal bathroom tile idea in most homes today. There are certain codes and layouts to follow and this would usually be the best way to select bathroom tiles. Space as well is something that many would want to work with. It is not a simple matter of using them that may come cheap and affordable. It's must be done accordingly to the specifications that people prefer.
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.
Mosaic tiles also make good flooring for small bathrooms. Mosaic tiles in several light colors or in a combination of light and bright colors can be used. Choose depending on the theme and overall decor of your bathroom.
A truly designer space can be achieved when tiling a bathroom, with relatively inexpensive tiles by using a large format white tile with a matching sized colour tile used as a contrast horizontally or vertically. White tiles can look a little clinical when used exclusively to tile a bathroom, consider using a striking contrast floor tile that matches some other fittings.
