Top tips for choosing the right bathroom tiles


Today, there are hundreds of various types of tile in the market. They come in different colors, sizes, styles, and shapes which can cause people to feel overwhelmed when they are renovating their bathroom. There are a lot of things to consider when choosing your bathroom tile contractors. You want it to be easy to clean and take care of, be pretty resistant to water damage and to flow nicely with the natural stone countertops you likely already have. 

If you are having a hard time deciding what type of tile would be best in your space, these tips can help a homeowner to quickly narrow down their tile options and make the decision-making process less tedious.

Create a budget

The first step to take when choosing bathroom tile contractors is determining your budget. You need to be comfortable with your budget and understand what tile options are suitable for you. Examples of quality and affordable bathroom tiles are ceramic and natural stone. Natural stone bathrooms are incredibly popular due to their affordability. Porcelain, similarly, is usually quite affordable and has a robust body-composition as it retains its original color even when it chips, making it another popular option.

Selecting the right size

While some manufacturers have their own non-standard tile sizes, the majority of tiles are sized anywhere from two inches to 24 inches depending on what type of design you are looking for. If you have a smaller bathroom, use smaller tiles as this will make the room appear bigger. Large tiles can dominate a space, making them more suitable for larger bathrooms. You can even choose to do a variety of sizes in order to create a unique design in your space.

Consider the tile type

Most bathrooms use different types of tiles to create a cohesive look that is visually interesting. When selecting your tiles, try to limit yourself to three types. If you have a small bathroom, avoid incorporating a variety of tile types and colors as it may appear too overwhelming; however, when using a single tile type, adding a variety of different sizes and colors can be a great design feature.

Choose the right color scheme

Coming up with the right color theme may be challenging. But, once you’ve selected the best tile, it's easy to come up with a suitable design. Try picking at least three different colors. Since your central theme is the center of attraction, pull subtle colors to it to make it colorful. A good rule of thumb, if you want your bathroom to be cohesive, is to pick out the undertones of your natural stone countertops and work with those for your tile. You can use them to accent or you can choose a complimentary color in your tile to offset it. Your options are almost endless!
