Choosing Tiles for your Bathroom

Whether you are planning an entire bathroom makeover or just feel like your walls and floors could do with a revamp, choosing tiles can be one of the most painstaking elements. Deciding upon which tiles will look best with your other bathroom applications and whether they are a practical choice are all things to consider. Don’t worry though, as we’re here to help you select the ideal bathroom tiles for your chosen design and make the process an easy one.

Why tiles are such a good choice for Bathrooms

It is no surprise that tiles are the most popular choice for modern bathroom interiors. On bathroom floors, for example, carpet and natural wood surfaces are less practical than a tiled surface. Tiles are perfect for protecting an underlying floor substrate in bathrooms and through straightforward cleaning and maintenance techniques the risk of damp and mould developing can be reduced. Tiles are also more hygienic than carpet which is a particularly important aspect in the floor areas next to the toilet. Not surprisingly, tiles with a high level of slip resistance are the best choice for bathroom floors and we have a wide range to choose from. In terms of wall tiles, a tiled backsplash near a sink, bathtub or within a shower area is great for creating a protective covering. In addition to the practical benefits of tiles you can also create the style you desire as you have such a vast array of patterns, colours and materials to select from throughout our premium collection.

Bathroom Ideas

The great thing about the amount of choice you have when acquiring tiles from Tilesporcelain is that you can provide your bathroom with the exact style you have always dreamed of. There are many different ways to transform your bathroom interior. You can use a unique tile combination or maybe the same tile variety on both the wall and floor in order to create your desired look.

Modern Bathroom Style

There are plenty of tiles to select from if you are looking to create a modern bathroom style. Plain tiles are often used within contemporary bathrooms as they will help to emphasise the available space and will complement modern fittings particularly well. Tiles in neutral colours like cream, grey and ivory are available throughout our range. Light travertine tiles are great for providing a unique feature in modern bathrooms. A mosaic border or backsplash is also often incorporated within modern bathroom designs. Large bathroom tiles are regularly chosen for smaller bathroom areas like en suites as the reduction in grout lines will produce an uncluttered appearance.

Traditional Bathroom Tiles

A traditional bathroom style is often chosen for older properties which have high ceilings but it is also suitable for modern layouts. For a traditional design we have a wide range of suitable tile options. For floors, a wood effect porcelain tile can be a great choice. Another tile which can be used as part of a traditional bathroom floor covering is natural stone marble, with the classic veined style creating a timeless appeal. Metro Ceramic or patterned tiles on walls are also recommended for traditional bathroom interiors and they can produce a highly decorative appearance on walls. Tiles from this range which have a retro appearance can also be incorporated within traditional bathroom layouts.

Wet Room Tiles

Converting a standard bathroom in to a wet room is becoming a popular design choice. Wet rooms represent a good use of space, particularly in smaller bathrooms. Upon the floor area which surrounds the drain, mosaics provide a flexible and practical covering. Contrasting a mosaic floor with standard format wall tiles can provide wet rooms with a classy style. Wet rooms are not only being seen more regularly in homes but you may have also realised that they are the preferred bathroom option in many hotels.

Bathroom Border Tiles

If you are looking to add something a little different to your bathroom layout then border tiles are an excellent choice. A border décor enables you to provide a trendy feature which complements the overall design theme. You can use border tiles both horizontally and vertically to create the look you desire. We have a range of tiles which are suitable for border designs including mosaics. A mosaic border will not only produce an intricate look but you can choose from a variety of styles, including sparkly and glass.

Creating more Bathroom Space

There are times when you might feel that you require more bathroom space. Maybe that storage area underneath the stairs could be converted in to a toilet area? If you have a large bedroom then there could be enough space to add an en suite. Bathroom loft conversions are also becoming increasingly popular. This additional bathroom space can prove invaluable to large families and also come in handy if you have guests to stay on a regular basis. Creating the space will be the biggest task but once that is completed, the decorating can then commence. Throughout our range of extensive bathroom tiles you will discover varieties which are suitable for all manner of layouts and designs.
