Tiling your bathroom is usually the best option as it is more hygienic and also easier to clean. However, it can be very costly so you want to do it just right. Especially when you have a smaller than usual bathroom you might feel like your hands are tied and have no choices. You might also feel like you are out of stylish options and that you might as well just go for boring white tiles to play it safe.
Well, we disagree! That’s why we’ve rounded up the best advice to guide you select the right tiles that will make for a great bathroom and give the illusion of more space.
Yes, you got it right, lighter shades will make your space look larger. But that doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to get the standard dull tiles you see in most everyday bathrooms. Choose something unique, like a nice natural stone tile that will brighten up the room and give it a sophisticated look.
Decide on something you really like as it’s best to have only one colour to avoid making your space look cluttered and busy. Having only one style and colour of tiles throughout and even use the same ones for the floor can help give your bathroom a more polished look and make the space feel lighter and larger.
Mosaic tiles are a great way to add adventure and character to your room. Use a combination that is close to your bathrooms colour pallet and add some interest by highlighting small parts of the wall. For example, you can use mosaic to emphasize the wall at the back of the washbasin, making it look like a stylish backsplash.
No one really gives much thought to grouting but when you really think about it, it has a very big effect to the final outcome. Make sure the grout is as close to the colour of the tiles as possible to compliment your choice. Moreover, special mould-resisting grout is sure to look clean and new for a long time.
