A 5-Point Comprehensive Guide to Bathroom Tiles

The bathroom is a wet room due to the regular pouring of water when we are taking a bath. And therefore, one is required to be careful when choosing the appropriate tiles to fix in the bathroom.

This is because some tiles are not able to withstand the high moisture; hence they end up spoiling within a short period of usage.

To avoid extra expenses of replacing your damaged tiles, take your time first and learn about different tiles on the market, their pros and cons as well before you purchase them.

What to Know About the Different Tiles

Tiles that are highly porous like the terracotta and slate are not ideal for bathrooms since they tend to suck the water which in return damages them.

But some manufacturers have come up with new designs of these two types of tiles which are water resistant making them ideal for use in the bathroom.

Therefore, before you choose either of the models, make sure you ask whether they are suitable for bathrooms or not. Apart from asking about the best tiles to use for the bathroom area, some of the features that you can watch out for when purchasing your tiles are; the level of resistant.

The tiles should be water, slip, and stain resistant. To make them more durable ensure that you use a sealant on the grout lines when installing the tiles.

Other types of tiles that are ideal for bathrooms are granite and marble tiles. Note that there are two types of granite and marble tiles and if you are buying for your bathroom, ensure they are made of non-slippery material.

Well, before you even purchase the right tiles for your bathroom, there are some essential things that you need to consider for you to be able to make the right decision.

Things to Consider Before Tiling your Bathroom

  • Design

First off, you need to decide on how you want your bathroom to look like. Do you need tiles that add different features or patterns to your bathroom? These are some of the crucial questions to ask yourself so you can be able to select the right designs for the tiles to complete your desired look.

  • Your Budget

The budget that you have set aside will determine the kind of tiles to buy. Also, the budget will be influenced by the size of your bathroom.

If the bathroom is large, be prepared to spend more as compared to a small bathroom.

The type of tiles that you need determines the budget to spend on some tiles such as marble cost more as compared to the regular ones.

  • Durability

You don’t need to buy tiles that will only last for a short time. So, ensure that you entirely focus on the quality of the tiles.

Make sure the tiles are nonporous, and the texture is easy to clean as well.

  • The Material

One of the materials to avoid when choosing your bathroom tiles is the polished material. Such tiles are quite slippery hence not ideal for the bathroom floor.

Ensure the material is water resistant and not smooth. One of the most recommended elements for bathroom floor is the Honed matt.

Conclusion

To ensure the tiling is professionally done, hire an expert to do the job for you.

If you are not an experienced tile installer, avoid handling the work since it is not an easy task and requires the appropriate techniques to complete the job.
