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.
Another important bath and shower tile design element is the grout color choice. The wide array of grout color will make your patterns come together with a matching or contrasting color. When you choose a high contrast color of grout to the tile it becomes more visible. Contrasting a white grout with black tile will contract for a checkered look giving you a little extra design. It is also important for grout to be cleaned with warm soapy water and re-sealed often in regularly used areas.
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.
•Add color to your tile choice by using randomly spaced contrasting tiles.
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.
