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.
When fitting the bathroom tiles, there are many aspects that need to be taken care. The foremost is to select the tiles and the materials that they are made of. Since, there will be dampness in the bathroom it is always advisable to fit tiles which are made of non-porous materials. Ceramic tiles are usually used for the wall tiles and the design depends upon your choice. Ideally the wall tile should match the color of the wall and the floor tiles. Some people also use contrasting tile colors for their bathroom wall tile design and the floor tile design.
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.
Tile designs are often custom made to suit the choice of the client and the hand paintings on the tiles are done by professional artists. You have to give your own design which will be printed on the tiles. You can choose from the variety of designs like the landscapes, aquatic life, coral reef, trees, flowers, fruits, vegetables etc.
Glass tiles are more expensive but really can add the wow factor to a bathroom. Glass can give colours more depth, reflect or allow more light whilst distorting the image on the other side. Shells or other novelty objects can be fused inside to really add a unique character to your bathroom tile designs. Natural materials such as wood, cork and stone often add a rustic effect to bathrooms, but with a highly polished finish can add a fantastic dimension to a contemporary bathroom design. Natural materials often have tactile quality that you wouldnt find in other materials. Metal tiles will often give a reflective surface and are nearly always used as part of a modern design.
