There are a baffling array of materials and colours to choose from so take your time and consider the overall effect that your trying to achieve. Bathroom tiles can be made from ceramics, glass, stone, metal and other natural materials. Ceramic tile are the most popular and come in a range of colour and finishes. White glossy tiles are the cheapest and will provide a cost effective solution to achieving a bright, light and clean bathroom design, however too many without contrast may give a too clinical effect. So by all means use them as a base, but throw in the odd darker tile to break them up or frame them.
•Light airy tile choices make your room look larger. For a stronger effect use contrasting accent tile colors.
The size and arrangement of your bathroom tiles should be your next consideration. Large tiles will obviously cover a larger area quickly and effectively, whereas small tiles are ideal for smaller areas such as basin surrounds or for framing a design. Mosaic tiles can be very time consuming but with a skilled artistic touch you can create a unique focal point. By placing rectangular tiles on their side you can make a small bathroom appear broader and adding a diamond pattern in the centre of a wall will create depth and focus.
Dont be afraid to be creative as you choose your bath and shower tile designs. The result will be a uniquely beautiful bathroom youll enjoy for years.
Tile design can make a floor or wall look very attractive and vastly improve the décor. You can use various types to make the design more interesting, but as the thicknesses may vary preparing the substrate for such designs would require a lot of care. This easy if you are using wet floor adhesive which will allow adjustment, but is quite difficult if you are making the tile design on a vertical surface. While making designs for floors it is all important that the various tiles used in the design have a similar surface as otherwise it could problems when you walk on the floor. Designs are best done on paper or on a computer and the pattern and types of tiles worked out well in advance before starting the work. You may decide on some exotic pattern for some of the tiles and if you fall short of even a single tile during the execution your entire design effect could be marred.
