by Levi Barney Marketing Manager
Everyone wants it to be big, grand, luxurious, glamorous, elegant with freestanding bath and high ceilings when it comes to the bathroom. But the truth is that the majority of you might have much smaller bathrooms than those that you usually see on TV or in the movies. 
 
Although, there are ways where you can make your bathroom look grand and spaces by selecting the right type of floor and wall tiles. So, if you are willing to change your bathroom tiles or do renovations then contact JLT Renovations as they offer small bathroom renovations as well.
 
Talking about the tiling ideas, here are some designs that will create the illusion of space and style.
 
The illusion of big space
 
There are bathroom tiles available that vary from tiny mosaic tiles to gigantic tiles which can reach meters in length. So, it is not a good idea to use huge and giant tiles in small bathrooms because the tile will need to be cut off a lot which will eventually create tons of waste and potentially interrupt the pattern or style. 
 
On the other hand, large bathroom tiles measures between 30-60 cm that tends to create a calm feeling which is perfect for bathrooms with limited spaces. If you are thinking to use large or medium-sized tiles then use square shapes with neutral colours such as white or grey. 
 
Small bathroom tiles, sometimes create claustrophobia. In order to avoid that, use small tiles with light colours and don’t use small tiles with heavy pattern features. Create an elegant feature wall around the basin area with mosaic tiles as they are the most popular. Choose mosaic tiles when it comes to creating an elegant feature wall around the basin area. Another popular option is mini metro tiles which are perfectly suited to small bathrooms. 
 
Light is the key 
 
You might not believe this but the colour of the bathroom tiles can also make an impact in a small bathroom. Most of the people will go for light hues such as white, cream, light grey, and so on. 
 
Select neutral colours while selecting bathroom tiles. This will help keep the tone of a room calm and clean which really helps in smaller rooms. That is because a neutral colour scheme provides the illusion of more space. You can also monochrome tiles which will eventually look awesome in small settings. On the other hand, if you go with glossy finish tiles, it will reflect the light around the room.  
 
Add style through patterned tiles
 
Everything things that patterned bathroom tiles make a bathroom feel busy and cluttered but if you use it smartly, you can add style to your bathroom! One of the easiest idea to use this style is to create a feature wall with your patterned tiles. This will not only make an impression on your guest but will also help to keep the eyes off the floor. That is because the floor space in a bathroom is a real challenge when you are trying to create the illusion of space. 
 
Moreover, in tight spaces, patterned bathroom tiles look great and is also an excellent way of decorating it. 
 
Reflective surfaces go hand in hand with small space  
 
You might know that light plays a great part in making a room look smaller or larger. When you a big custom built bathroom in Melbourne, think about bathroom tiles, consider tiles with a glossy, glass or mirror finish. Glossy finish tiles allow light to reflect around the room whilst the glass and mirrored finishes will totally enhance the feeling of space. Marble finish is also a great choice as they have a slight gloss finish to it. Get a light colour for such style, as it helps in creating an elegant feel to your bathroom.
