Bathroom Tile Ideas

Are you looking for bathroom tile ideas? Are you getting frustrated? We bet that you’ve visited many local bathroom and tile stores. Have viewed static display after static display as an attempt to gain some sort of inspiration for your own bathroom project to no avail.

In the last two decades, tiles are one of many things that have come a long way. At one time tiles were considered practical for backsplashes in kitchens, and one row high around bathtubs.

In recent years tiles are considered a design of choice that has a huge market. These days tiles are a beautiful solution for floors and walls in bathrooms.

If you’ve been thinking about coming up with bathroom tile ideas, you need to decide what style and type of tile you are looking for. The main options are ceramic, porcelain, glass, and natural stone.

Any of these types of tiles can be used for bathroom flooring and walls. However, you need to carefully consider the implications and characteristics of each one.

This way you will be able to avoid potential failures which could cost you a lot of money and be disastrous to your project. Before installing any tiles you need to evaluate the situation surrounding each choice.

Whether it’s on the bathroom walls or the floor, or both. Consider if the tile needs strengthening or waterproofing. It the tile is too heavy, you may want glass tiles which require a different type of adhesive, with a professional technique that will avoid any unsightly spaces and shadows behind the tiles.

One popular style for the modern bathroom is to create a completely wet room. This is pretty much a walk-in shower and is much more comfortable than an enclosed one.

These wet rooms can be done in any room type providing that certain rules are followed. The room will need to be 100% waterproofed, that seals in the water and prevents leakage into other areas of the house. The tiles also need fails in it so that the water can drain and not pool.

If you are looking for a beautiful finish, in your bathroom, the natural stone option might be the way to go. These are available in several guises that provide different characteristics and wearing grades.

The thing is that with natural stone it will vary. Most natural stone tiles will need a cleaning regimen and seal occasionally to keep the tile in excellent condition. These tiles can be used on both walls and floors.

Yet, they have quirks that you’ll need to be knowledgeable about in order to fix them before you consider installing them. This is because natural stone tiles have higher requirements compared to ceramic and porcelain types of tiles.

Another consideration for bathroom tile is mosaic tiles. These have a timeless quality that suits most spaces. The thing about mosaic tiles is that these come in glass, porcelain, and natural stone finishes, and in various colors.

Like with the natural stone, mosaic tiles have a special care that needs to be taken when it comes to fixing these tiles. This is to avoid the adhesive from squeezing up through. Because of this, laying mosaic tiles can prove difficult for the inexperienced.

Please remember, if you plan to use mosaic tiles in a wet area with no tanking system, you will have a much higher risk of the water turning into a substrate that causes failure.

When laying tiles in a bathroom you can achieve a designer look with inexpensive tiles, including white and matching size colored ones, contrasting horizontally or vertically. Plain white tiles can look too clinical, consider a striking contrast floor tile that matches other fittings in your bathroom.

When considering bathroom tile ideas, the biggest problem is that the possibilities are endless. When it comes to your bathroom decide what kind of space you’re looking for. Combine different tile types, and have a bit of a designer flair and you’ll achieve a beautiful, bathroom that you’ll love.
