Let Us Talk About Your Bathroom

Aside from your kitchen, another great place that can benefit from the use of gray tile colors is the bathroom. Renovating your bathroom and choosing the tiles in order for you to dress it in new fashion is an important decision you’ll make. To help you pick the right choice here are five practical tips you can actually follow when choosing bathroom tiles.

Pick your must have

Inspiration for renovation arises from seeing a dream look that you want your bathroom to have. Special tile designs or even the most simple subways tiles can capture your attention when used right. What you need to keep in mind is to have that starting point to serve as an inspiration for the final tile choice you will have for your bathroom design.

Keep it up to three different tiles

As stated in the first step, let that inspiration become your starting point in determining what you really want for your bathroom upgrade. Make that tile choice expand to other designs that you can use to make the design more interesting. Mixing and matching subtle tile colors with colorful and pattern accent tiles will bring out a focal point in your design.

Never be afraid of being experimental, the three different choices of tile can be used for the floor, walls and for accenting the focal point of interest in your design. You can keep your choice to a minimum of one but you can also spice up your design by having a mix of at least two or three. It is never wrong to have an eccentric design, guidelines in bathroom interiors aren’t set on stone and breaking it a little bit might create an upgrade that you always wanted.

Stick to one special tile

If you have decided to use an interesting color or pattern for the wow factor in your bathroom, make sure to keep it at the minimum of one design or pattern. It will be regarded as the highlight because you will need to put it in the place where you want everyone to take notice. The amount of interest in that focal design piece will become more timeless if it will complement all other fixtures on your bathroom. Most interior designers will advise you to use one pattern or color that will stand out among the others. However, the size of the highlight area will be up to you. You can even decide to make your bathroom pretty basic as long as the area of focal design can bring out the vibe you wanted to achieve.

Think about maintenance

You might think that cleaning your bathroom is not a factor that you need to consider at this point. However, in order for you to keep your bathroom interior without worrying too much about how to keep it neat and tidy you need to be very wise in choosing tile materials that are virtually maintenance free. Ceramic or porcelain tiles can be used in wet prone areas because they can still appear neat after being submerged in water a lot. Natural stones can be dirtied a lot that’s why they need to be in the parts of your bathroom that aren’t exposed to water a lot. The tile materials of your choice will affect the work you need to put into in maintaining the cleanliness of your bathroom.

Size matters

The bathroom is an area where you can easily slip and fall. In order for you to avoid injuries you need to consider the size of the tiles you use for your bathroom floor. If you love the trend of getting large tiles for the floor, make sure that you choose a slip resistant material for it. There will be more chances of slipping when less grouts are involved. Although it will require more work, for a more slip free shower floor you can always create creative designs when you use smaller 2×2 tiles across the entire floor.
