Choosing bathroom tiles can be one of the most difficult things to decide on when redecorating your washroom. So here are some tips to help you make your choice.
Before choosing your tiles, make sure you know what colour scheme you want in your bathroom. You might want your tiles to match, complement or contrast with the colour, but it is important to have a main style in mind first.
For instance, if you are going for dark blue paint on your walls, white, gold, or grey tiles work particularly well. Alternatively, a green bathroom could have complementary green tiles, or even pink ones for a stylish contrast.
The size of the tile may depend on the size of your washroom. Cloakroom WCs, for instance, call for small tiles, as using very large tiles will make the room appear even smaller. Larger rooms can handle bigger tiles, or even floor-to-ceiling splashbacks.
It is worth noting that smaller tiles are fiddler to fit. However, bigger ones are more likely to need cutting down to fit in edges and around corners.
Where to tile
What style of tile you opt for will probably depend on where you plan to tile. If you want your entire room covered, it is wise to opt for a neutral colour that isn’t too overwhelming. Rejecting the latest trends and choosing a more neutral shade will also help if you plan to sell your house soon, as it won’t put off prospective homebuyers.
However, if you only want a small sink splashback tiling, you can go as bright and bold as you want.
