Design Tips For Bathroom Tile

There's no other material that compares to the stylish and elegant look of tile in the bathroom. Whether you have a small or large bathroom, tile is almost certain to help create a more attractive atmosphere. It possesses a naturally shiny appearance that reflects the surrounding light, which is just one of the many reasons why so many homeowners choose it.

Choosing The Right Tile

You might be surprised to learn just how many different types of tile there are. Some of the ones that are most commonly used in the bathroom include ceramic, porcelain, vinyl and stone, all of which have their own unique characteristics and properties. The good news is that all types of bathroom tile are designed to withstand the damaging effects of water and humidity; therefore, you can use them without fear of future damage from moisture.

It's recommended that you take your time to carefully go over the different types of bathroom tile before purchasing it. The additional time it takes will ensure you make the best decision for your bathroom. Consider not only the color and style, but also how easy it is to install. Trying to install mismatched stone tile in a bathroom can easy take several days if not more. The bottom line is that you want a tile that's quick and easy to install.

If you are having trouble choosing a tile for your bathroom, don't be afraid to visit your local home improvement store and ask an employee for help. Nine out of ten times they will be more than happy to guide you in the right direction.

Start on Walls First

Some homeowners may feel inclined to install tile on the bathroom floors first; however, doing so will usually only make it more difficult to move around. A better option is to install the tile on the walls in your bathroom first and then work your way down to the floors. Since tile is usually only installed in the shower/tub area of the bathroom, installing it should take less time anyways.

When you are finished installing tile on the walls, you can then start working on the floor. The key thing to remember is that you want to work from the back of your bathroom floor to the front. This will allow you to easily exit and enter the bathroom without stepping over newly laid tile. After the tile flooring is laid out, you will need to avoid walking on it until it fully dries.
