One of the most prominent features of a bathroom is undeniably the tiles. So, when designing your new bathroom, it is vital to pick the perfect tile to suit your bathroom. There are a few main factors that will need to be considered, which we will go over briefly below.
Depending on the size of your bathroom and the amount of natural light that is available, different tile sizes and finishes will have varying effects to the overall ambience of the bathroom. For example, light or white coloured tiles work best in smaller areas as they create the illusion of a larger and more illuminated bathroom. Don't incorporate too many different types of tiles though, as this can cause your bathroom to look more cluttered and messy.
Tiles come in wide variety of shapes, sizes, colours, patterns, materials, and textures. Not all can be used interchangeably, so it is important to know how to properly clean and maintain each tile you have chosen.
There is more flexibility for tiling patterns when opting for smaller size tiles, perfect for creating feature walls in contrasting colours. Keep in mind not to use too many different colours as we mentioned earlier as it will ruin the design of your bathroom.
Depending on the material of the tile, it may be limited in its usability. For example, ceramic tiles can only be used on walls as it is not as dense as porcelain tiles which are suitable for both wall and floors. These tiles are generally also low maintenance in comparison to natural or composite tiles which will require additional maintenance to seal and properly clean.
The most important factor when choosing tiles, your budget. Italian tiles are expensive and are undeniably amazing to look at, but that doesn't mean that any Australian or Chinese tiles can't give the same effect. With current advances in technology, locally or Chinese tiles are able to provide similar patterns and quality to their Italian counterparts. Tiles can get quite expensive so it is worthwhile to consider these Italian alternatives.
Another factor to consider is the shape, patterns, and sizes of your tiles. Smaller and more unique shapes such as hexagons will require more labour to install and will ultimately be more expensive when adding up these associated costs.
After taking into consideration all these factors, you now should be able to select the perfect bathroom tiles for your home! Check out Zure's selection of quality and designer tiles available now!
