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.
You may look at some major resources like internet, magazines and others to get various Kitchen tile ideas before you buy tiles for your kitchen. These ideas will let you know all about getting the ideal tiles for your kitchen at right price. It is very important that you get the right quality of tiles for which you are actually paying for. Today there is wide variety of tiles available for your kitchen. Like there are stone tiles, Porcelain tiles, etc. Slate, Sandstone, Granite, Travertine, etc. are some of the materials that are today used to produce flooring tiles for your kitchen.
One popular solution for a bathroom is to create a wet room, which is basically a walk in shower room that is much more comfortable than the enclosed shower types. These can be created to suit virtually any room type as long as a few simple rules are followed. The room will need to be waterproofed (tanked) to provide a seal and water leaking downstairs or next door. The tiles will need to have falls created if they don't already exist in the substrate, to allow the water to drain and the water to not pool in an area.
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.
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.
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.
