5 Things you should consider when choosing bathroom tiles

With never ending options for bathroom tiles, your bathroom can be as beautiful as it is functional.

Whether you are embarking on a bathroom renovation or are in the process of building a new bathroom, the tiles are the foundation of your bathroom style so it’s important to consider your choices to ensure you are satisfied with your end decision.

5 considerations for bathroom tiles

Ceramic and porcelain tiles are the most popular tiles for bathroom floors as they are non-porous, scratch resistant, low maintenance and affordable. They are both available in a variety of colours, patterns and finishes making them a top choice for all scales of bathroom renovations.

Large tiles create a feeling of elegance and calm with their clean lines, whereas small mosaic tiles can feel busy but also give you more creative versatility and space to stamp your style on the bathroom. The good news is there is no one size fits all rule and also no reason why tile sizes can’t be mixed and matched.

Think about every aspect of your tiles when it comes to maintenance. As well as materials, tile size will have an impact on the amount of cleaning they require. Small tiles = more grout! Grout is one of the hardest things to keep clean in a bathroom, larger tiles reduce the amount of grout required.

As a general rule of thumb, light colours work best in smaller bathrooms as the neutral colours help keep the room bright, creating the illusion of space. However, if you have plenty of natural light in your bathroom then darker shades can still look great in smaller bathrooms and even make this room the ‘wow’ room of your home. If your bathroom is large, then consider sticking to one colour palette as this will ensure the scale of the bathroom is reflected as a mixture of several colours can create a busy look and make the bathroom seem smaller.

Don’t be afraid to mix and match
Mixing and matching tiles can make certain areas of your bathroom stand out. Consider using different tiles, either in size, shape or colour in your shower or around the mirror than the rest of the room, or if that is a little too much for you, consider using different tiles in recesses to make them a feature.
