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.
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.
If you have the budget to spend, then you might as well make your bathroom look like a total hotel suite. You can choose from a wide range of designer bathroom pieces when it comes to tiles or maybe settle for the glass types which are all pricier. You should make it yield to looking sleek and streamlined along with an overall minimalist design. You can also choose to settle instead for the sharper and cleaner lines whether it is rounded or squared.
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.
There are numerous shapes for the tiles like diamond shape or rectangles, octagons, squares, and hexagons and many varieties of graphics or images on them. Hand crafted designs have a special appeal and can add a charming feel to the house.
