Before creating bath and shower tile designs, you must choose your pattern and tiles you want. When using tile to create designs there are three kinds of tiles you can use. There are field tiles, which are simple in shape. These come in many sizes and are great to use when covering a large area. The next tiles are the accent tiles. These tiles are designed with unusual shapes, sheens and textures. All it takes is a few of these to turn an ordinary tile pattern into something extraordinary. Last, the trim tiles are your border tiles. These are typically narrow and go around the edge to add to your design.
The dimensions of a room are very important for starting any tile design. Tile patterns whether for shower tiles or a bathroom floor tile floor need to be based on the overall sizes of the surface being treated. It is essential to base a design on full tile sizes as cutting of tiles is a problematic job and would also render the design less effective. Work out the entire design before hand and calculate the different types and colors of tiles being used and ensure that you have sufficient quantity of the material before you start laying the tiles. There is no harm in having some extra tiles as breakages are a possibility.
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.
