We outline here some of the things to considers when tiling your bathroom
Type of Bathroom tiles
There are a whole range of tiles available to choose from. Some of the tiles include ceramic, glass, quarry, and porcelain tiles.
Ceramic tiles are more common and affordable. They come in various colours, are smooth with no pores and therefore easy to clean and maintain. Ceramic tiles can be glazed or unglazed. The glazed tiles can be plain or decorated and good for both walls and floors. However, the unglazed tiles are less resistant to scratches and slips.
Glass tiles can be used to create beautiful and unique designs due to their ability to reflect light. They are a lot more affordable now but are harder to install.
Quarry tiles are porous and need a good ceramic sealant to fill the pores. You can get them glazed to fix the problems with the pores. They are available in white, black and terracotta.
Porcelain tiles are a version of ceramic tiles with lower water absorption rate. They are durable and less susceptible to scratches
Making your bath the standout feature
For an elegant appearance, make the bath the standout feature in the bathroom and tile around it. The surrounding tile area gives that bathroom a good appeal. You can use white tiles or tiles with lighter colours that help highlight the area and waterproof from splashes.
Choose appealing shower enclosures
There is no rule that says that the tiling inside your shower enclosures must be the same as the bathroom wall and floor tiles. You can get creative here and select a slightly different colour or even material to create different patterns.
The size of bathroom determines the size of tiles
If the size of the bathroom is small, then don’t use large tiles as it would make the bathroom look even smaller. Use small tiles in small spaces to get the right appearance. There are a lot of options out there to choose from. The major disadvantage is that it takes more time to complete the tiling of a smaller bathroom than a bigger bathroom. This is reflected in the bathroom tiling cost.
Choose colours with the end user in mind
Your colours should be determined by the end user in mind. For a family bathroom use tiles with primary colours that are child friendly. If you have adult children or no children, then you can be more style conscious with the colour choice for your tiles. If you don’t spend a lot of time in the home, then there is no point splashing out on expensive tiles when practical ones will do.
