Bathroom - Consider The Room’s Function

The bathroom is that part of the home which consists of both dry and wet zone hence it should be the first factor that needs to consider when it comes to the selection of tiles for the bathroom. Since the bathroom has multiple roles to play, choose for bathroom flooring materials that are denser, less porous, harder and offer greater stain and water resistance.

Bathroom Design Ideas - Aesthetic Versus Safety

Interior designing is not just about the function and the aesthetics, it is also about safety, hence when bathroom flooring tiles are being chosen, make sure to opt for anti-skid bath floor tiles, as they provide grip and prevents one from accidents caused by slipping.  Hence, anti-skid tiles are definitely the best option to be used in the bathroom wet areas.

Bathroom Designing - Consider The Size And Color

It is a known fact that dark-colored tiles will make a tiny bathroom look dull and dingy whereas lighter-colored tiles will open up the bathroom space. Similarly, usage of dark tiles in an extra-large bathroom with a pop of color can add in the much-required warmth to an existing cold-looking bathroom. So it is vital to consider the size of the bathroom while choosing bathroom tile colors.

Bathroom Tile Installation - Consider The Tile Size

Though the bathroom subway tiles are very much in trend, the fact is that the bigger the tile, gets, the bigger space seems! And yes, installing one wall with subway tiles won’t do any harm. In fact, it will uplift the bathroom instantly. Just make sure to maintain the tile ratio to avoid unpleasant distractions.

Time To Set A Bathroom Color Theme

Constructing a color palette would not turn out to be a daunting task if one steps ahead with a systematic approach. Hence, what I would recommend is start off by choosing bathroom cabinets, bathroom vanity, sanitarywares colors first. Once these are selected, one could easily start off creating a palette for the bathroom tiles!

Bathroom Tile on Walls - The  Focal Point

When a bathroom renovation starts to make sure to select one tile that would act as a bathroom highlighter, rather as a bathroom focal point. Since the overall bathroom remains neutral, adding a dash of color becomes a necessity. And this is when the bathroom accent wall comes to rescue. Even this colorful accent tile could be used as the starting point for the other tile you will choose for your bathroom design.

How about bringing all the focus to the back wall of the shower? But make sure to not overcrowd the entire bathroom with more than three different color tiles!

Bathroom Tile Ideas - Incorporate Bathroom Tiles In Various Shapes

Bathroom tile is available in various shapes. For instance, the subway tiles, bathroom tile hexagon, the smaller scale penny bathroom tile design and so on. Though these are more available in subtle colors, it still manages to add interest to your bathroom.
