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.
One of the more vital things to think about when selecting tiles will be that you need to be sure the tiles chosen for the countertops, walls, backsplash and floor, compliment each other. If you select the ones with patterns and colors which jar with one another, the kitchen ends up appearing messy and wont be a cohesive design. In order to prevent this, youll need to initially view different interior design magazines to obtain ideas concerning what patterns of styles and colors appear attractive together. Color blends in the instance of tiles which work will be different for various kitchen décor styles. For the cottage style kitchen, the patterns such as flowers, stripes within bright and sunny colors such as coral, lime green, yellow, and peach, appear just right. For the Mexican style of kitchen, a white and red striped tile that has décor to compliment will appear stunning.
One of the wonderful things about tile is the fact you have almost unlimited creativity. There are many types of tile and different ways to create your own unique bath and shower tile designs. From standard bulk tile to individually hand painted, no matter what your decorative style, youll still have many choices.
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.
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.
