How to use tiles in your Bathroom

There’s a reason tile is often the material of choice in the bathroom: it reflects light, it’s durable, it’s easy to clean and it freshens up space. Tile is a good way to make space look polished and to revamp a bathroom without doing a major overhaul. Keep in mind that the grout between tiles can become grimy if it’s not cleaned properly, and regular maintenance is important in preserving an aesthetic that looks fresh and not grungy.

Tile is more expensive than paint, so the amount of material and the complexity of your design will likely depend on budget. Options range from minimal use in a border, for example, to maximum use in floor-to-ceiling executions.

It’s good to think about resale value when making changes to a bathroom, especially because white and off-white are the most popular color schemes in that room. That said, your bathroom is a space that all of your guests will likely see at some point; so if you want to make a statement, this is the place to do it.

Here are five general bathroom tile ideas to apply to your space.

Wainscoting

Wainscoting is a decorative wall covering that extends partway up the wall. It’s typically done in wood and in spaces such as the dining room. However, it can also work in the bathroom as a way to add character. If you want to incorporate tile but are on a budget, try tiling from the floor up and then paint the remaining wall with a gloss or semi-gloss paint for easy clean-up. A potential benefit of using tile wainscoting is that it can also work as a backsplash if it extends high enough above the sink.

Border Tile

A border of tile lets you add your personal style without breaking your budget. It also can be a way to make a bold statement without making a huge investment (and also one that can be changed to match the taste of future buyers). Add a strip of mosaic tile or colored glass along the top of subway-tile wainscoting or let it stand alone against a painted wall to warm up the room.

Flooring

Tile flooring is common in bathrooms and offers a nice alternative to hardwoods, which can get warped if they are exposed to too much water. If you decide to put ceramic tile on the floor, look for a grade of 1 or 2, a water-absorption rating of less than 7 percent and a coefficient of friction above .60, which are slip-resistant and can stand up to water.

Shower Tile

Define zones in the room by using a different tile in the shower. You’ll want to use a tile that has a water-absorption rating of less than 3 percent (lower than what’s recommended for the floors) and has good traction (a coefficient of friction that’s greater than or equal to .60).

All Over

If budget isn’t a factor, then all-over tile can be an interesting way to merge durability and easy cleaning with style. Vary the color, shape, pattern, size, and texture of tiles by using different materials on the floors, on the walls, and in the shower. Using all-over tile is a good way to make a small space brighter, as the tile will reflect light.

Choosing the right kind of sanitary ware items can help in enhancing the comfort of using the bathroom. Choosing the most appropriate items can be really confusing. Following are some guidelines that can help to choose the right sanitary products that meet your budget and needs.

Small-Bathroom-Ideas

1. The sanitary ware items should be chosen in accordance with the look desired for the bathroom. Consider the color, pattern and other aspects of the selected items that influence the overall look.

2. In addition to the looks, the buyers should also take into consideration the plumbing and fittings for the products. Not all bathrooms have the necessary fixtures that are required for the more stylish sanitary items.

3. It is also important to select the items that prove to be water-efficient, especially in areas that face constant scarcity of water. This only helps in conserving water for other important use.

4. The size and style of the sanitary ware items also play an important role in their choice. Smaller bathrooms might cover greater space and also pose plumbing issues. At the same time small washbasins might ruin the grand look of a spacious bathroom.

5. Rather than buying two piece toilets, it is better to choose one piece type as they not only help in effective utilization of space but are also easier to use for people of all age groups.

6. While choosing the sanitary ware items, it is also important to consider the ease of cleaning and maintenance. In areas, where the water tends to be somewhat harder, it is better to choose light colored sanitary ware items as the scaling and water stains are not much visible in these products.

7. It is also important to avoid buying sanitary ware products that feature a complex design as it might not match the overall décor of the bathroom. Most sanitary ware companies offer products that feature a simple yet elegant design, which complements the overall décor of the bathroom while also making everyday care easy and manageable.
