The selection of tiles for a bathroom is a crucial decision that can greatly impact the overall aesthetics and functionality of the space. With an overwhelming array of options available, from materials to colors and patterns, it’s essential to approach the process thoughtfully.
Consider the Size of the Space:
In smaller bathrooms, lighter-colored tiles can create the illusion of space, while larger tiles with minimal grout lines contribute to a seamless look. In larger bathrooms, you have the flexibility to experiment with a variety of tile sizes and patterns.
Determine the Right Material:
Various tile materials are suitable for bathrooms, including ceramic, porcelain, natural stone, and glass. Each material has unique characteristics in terms of durability, maintenance, and aesthetics. Ceramic and porcelain tiles are popular for their water resistance and ease of maintenance, while natural stone adds a touch of luxury. Choosing different types of tile can add texture while also elevation the look of your bathroom.
Select the Right Finish:
Different tile finishes, such as matte, glossy, or textured, contribute to the overall look and feel of the bathroom. Matte finishes are ideal for minimizing watermarks, while glossy finishes can add a reflective quality to the space.
Creating A Focal Point:
Use accent tiles or create a feature wall to introduce visual interest and focal points within the bathroom. This can be particularly effective in areas like the shower, backsplash, or around the vanity. We chose this hexagonal striped tile for the wall behind the vanity in the boys bathroom at our Comstock Project for this reason exactly.
