Tips to Choose Best Tiles for Bathroomby Philip Smith Inbound Marketing Manager
Are you building a new bathroom at your home? Or are you considering a complete makeover of your old school bathroom? If your answer is yes, this article is going to help choose the most right tile material for your bathroom. Read on –
1. Light Colors –
For a bathroom, even if it has exposure to natural light, light colored subway (small rectangular) tiles are a great choice. The light color makes your bathrooms (bathrooms usually do not cover large area) appear bigger and more spacious.
And if you are choosing light colored tiles, make sure that the color of grout too is light.
2. Diagonal Tile Placement –
If bathroom area is too small, placing tiles in diagonal order can help create illusion of a larger space. Discuss this point with your tile placer.
3. Not More Than Three Styles/Colors
While planning a design layout for your bathroom, experiment with not more than three colors or styles of tiles. More styles or colors render a confusing distraction. It also become difficult to find a suitable and symmetrical tile pattern when you working with multiple tiles in a single small room.
4. Low-Maintenance Tiles
When looking to buy bathroom tiles, emphasize on getting something that is simple and affordable to maintain. Natural stones look fabulous in bathroom and any other setting. However, for bathroom – an area that gets heavy splashes of water on a routine basis – natural stones aren’t actually a good idea.
All you will have to do is to keep a tile maintenance service on your quick dial list, so you can call them whenever there is a cleaning and maintenance requirement.
So, what’s the solution? Choose stone-look ceramic or porcelain tiles – that resemble the look of natural stones, and are easy to maintain, water resistant, fire resistant, anti-slip, and easy to maintain. These tiles do not have porous surface – that means less likelihoods of stains and damages.
