Choosing to renovate your bathroom is a big step but will be a decision you do not regret as transforming your bathroom space will not only add value to your home but make it more aesthetically pleasing and functional. Before the renovation can get underway an essential choice you need to make is picking out the perfect tiles, below are some of our tips to help making this decision process easier.
Ensuring you carefully select the right style of tile to suit your bathroom design is essential as it will have a massive influence on the aesthetic of your new bathroom renovation. First you must reflect on what kind of feel, mood, and style you want represented in your bathroom and if it suits your current design of your home. It is essential that you do the proper research and discovery so that the tile properly represents the emotion you are trying to evoke from your new bathroom whether that is a modern contemporary feel or a more heritage look.
A popular trend in bathroom design is the subtle use of patterned tiles which can transform the look of your bathroom. An option you will have been deciding between porcelain tiles or ceramic tiles, with porcelain tiles being a lot more durable and hard wearing than ceramic tiles but come with a more expensive price tag. Another option at your disposal is the use of terrazzo tiles which combines cement and natural stone chips. This is a popular choice by many but need to be sealed and constantly maintained to look their best. Finally you have the option of choosing composite stone which is similar to the terrazzo tile but does not need as much maintenance as the polymers that make up the tile allow it to be more scratch resistant and hardwearing.
Another fashionable trend in tiling is the use of 3D or mosaic tiles and are usually used as an accent to finish off a wall rather than cover the entire space. This is due top their cost however they are extremely versatile and mosaic tiles can be made of ceramic, porcelain, stone and even glass. Not only are they versatile in material but they are also available in many shapes such as ovals, herringbone, hexagonal designs, and many others to suit your design. These tiles are perfect in adding that final touch of elegance and attention to detail to your bathroom and can be the difference between a good design and an amazing one.
A unique but widely popular tile is the use of natural stones which can give your bathroom that industrial or modern look if used correctly. The advantage of a natural stone is that it can be left raw or polished enabling you to pick and choose which finish will suit your bathrooms aesthetic. The only downfall of natural stone, like the terrazzo tile is that it needs to be properly sealed and maintained to ensure it lasts a long time.
