Bathroom tiles are an essential part of one of the most important rooms of the house, and making sure you choose the right type is not as easy as you might think. There are more than just a few considerations that you have to keep in mind before making your final choice, and sometimes it can be good to sit down and really flesh out what is important to you before making that final decision, so you have a clear understanding. Here are a few things to keep in mind when deciding on your bathroom tiles so you make the perfect choice!
Tiles can come in all shapes and sizes and while that may not seem like such a big deal, there are a few reasons why it should be. The size of your tiles can really highlight a particular feature of your bathroom, for instance, smaller tiles can make a tiny bathroom feel a little bit bigger, and more intricate patterns can be made with them. Larger tiles give you a more luxurious feel as if there is no care or consideration for space saving at all (in a good way!). It is hard to really get a sense of the scale of bathroom tiles without seeing them in person so make sure you do visit a tiling shop before signing any paperwork.
Another (often forgotten about) feature of your tiles is the texture on top of them. While you may not be familiar with the fact that you can have different textures, there is a sliding scale available from completely smooth to very grippy. In more commercial bathrooms, grippier tiles are used so that there is less chance of slipping for older users, but many residential bathrooms have very smooth tiles that let water glide over them with no resistance. Some people like to use grippier tiles as a mini-feature in their bathroom that adds to the overall interior design of their home.
When it comes to the colour of your tiles, the main question you face is: do you want people to be looking at your tiles or elsewhere? If you do intend to make your tiles more artistic, then a unique or interesting colour is definitely warranted, but if the answer is no then steer clear of them and remain with your underlying colours that are present in the rest of the bathroom. There is nothing wrong with either choice, as long as you make a conscious decision and know what you are doing!
