Choosing the Right Tile for Your Bathroom

Tiles can add value to a bathroom! And with their hygienic and water resistant properties, are a popular choice for any wet area. There are various unique finishes on offer that can’t be matched by other materials. Whether it is ceramic, porcelain, travertine or slate, bathrooms can accommodate all types of tiles.

Here are some tips to help you narrow down your choices and find out which is the right tile for your bathroom:

Hygiene

10836323064_8574f2c299_bWith their fresh appearance and easy wipe surfaces, tiles offer a great hygienic solution to a bathroom. While tiles are water-resistant, they are not totally waterproof. Before tiling, you can waterproof the shower area with a waterproofing kit to prevent any potential water damage to the walls behind the tiling. Also, if you opt for natural stone tiles for your bathroom, make sure that they are sealed with the recommended maintenance products prior to fixing to prevent water damage/staining.

Tile size for my bathroom

Typically, it is advised to avoid using large bathroom tiles such as 60x30cm in a small bathroom, as it will make the room significantly smaller. But if most of the tiles can be applied without any cuts, the result can be impressive.

With small tiles like 10x10cm, its several grout lines can sometimes look unattractive. For many people, medium sized tiles such as 40x20cm are a common choice for either large or small bathrooms today.

Using tiles to make a small bathroom look bigger

One way to make small bathrooms look bigger is to use light colored bathroom tiles such as white or cream. They reflect the light more as compared to darker colors, giving an airy and spacious feel to your bathroom. Another way is to use the same color wall tiles as the floor tiles.
