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.
