How to Choose the Right Bathroom Tile
Floor tile sets the tone for the total look and feel of your bathroom. It is the x factor in your satisfaction. The right design, placement, color and angle of your bathroom tile can instantly transform a bathroom room giving it style, character, and elegance. Just as paint, cabinets, furniture, wall décor, and many other elements are essential in creating the right motif for your bathroom, installing the perfect floor tiling can give your home that added touch.
When you work with the professional remodeling contractors at Christie's Design Build Remodeling to begin your bathroom flooring project, here are some things you'll want to consider.
- Tile Size — First choose the thickness and width of your tiles. The average tile size that most homeowners use is between three to six inches in diameter. If you really want to make a bold statement and go for a grander look, then twelve inch tiles may be for you. This is especially appealing in larger bathrooms.
- Tile Style — Next, what is your style? Are you going for a modern look, a vintage look, plain or elegant? For example, more decorative, Greek style with a creative design will give your bathroom a regal look along with your showers, tubs or cabinets. Plain glossy rich coloring will add a sleek image to your bathroom's overall look.
- Tile Texture — The type of tile flooring you use often makes a statement. Travertine offers a crystallized appearance with an earthy tone. Porcelain tile is constructed from white, red, or brown clay combined with Feldspar crystal rock. It can either be glazed or unglazed. Natural Stone, which is produced by natural materials is quarried, slabbed, finished, and cut to size. Types of stone include granite, marble, limestone, and slate.
- Tile Tone — And last but certainly not least is the color of your tile. Color often sets the tone and mood of your room. Homeowners often choose earth tones over primary colors as they generally go with most bathroom furniture and décor. With the right design and vision, however, primary colors and bold colors will give you an edgy bathroom look!
