A manufactured piece of hard material used for covering roofs, walls, floors and even architectural wonders is called as a tile. It includes ceramic, stone, marble, glass and metal. Tiles are obtainable in variety of designs. Ranging from the simple plain coloured tiles to designer tiles you can have access to any one of them easily in the market.
Tiles provide an easy and efficient way to complete the task at hand effectively. Usually when it comes to decorating a bathroom that is its walls, floors and counterparts, tiling is a better option as it would usually prevent leakages which is so not the case if painting is done.
You have to consider various factors before deciding on a tile to use.
Decide whether you want a smaller or larger in size tile. Smaller tile requires more correctness which would lead to an increase in the labour charges. Tiles are also available in different shapes and sizes, with and without different designs over it, that choice depends upon your style and requirements.
To my best knowledge I have summed up various bathroom tile ideas to revamp your bathroom:
a) Being Natural:
If you are a nature enthusiast and would love to incorporate features of nature in your bathroom you could go for tiles which resemble wood or bark of a tree, giving your bathroom a serene effect. You can use the wood like tiles on the walls and complete the look by selecting natural white coloured tiles for the floor.
b) Geometric Way:
Recently there has been an increase in trend of tiles of geometric shapes. The make your bathroom funky yet elegant. They are available in bold colours and different shapes engraved on it. Make sure to contrast the colour of the walls and the floor. If you go for bold colour walls, go for subtle and light coloured tiles for your floors and vice-versa.
c) Elegant Mode:
You can go mode elegant that is you can select tiles of lighter shade of grey, white, blue and position them for both the walls and the floor. Going for the same colour overall for your bathroom would make it look elegant and beautiful. Darker shades look attractive too when combined with the right colour of porcelain bathtubs and showers.
d) Down the memory lane:
You could go for a particular theme and have the tiles positioned according to it. It maybe of your favourite sports, place, cartoon character and so and so forth. You could go for a garden theme or an aqua theme. It may be a little expensive as it involves great amount of precision and creativity.
e) Floor Heart:
Instead of highlighting your walls you can focus just on your floors. Use designer tiles for the floor and plain tiles for your walls. This way your floor looks vibrant and it would make a style statement.
f) Wall Heart:
In the same way you can focus on a single side of the wall. You can use various shades of the colour blue for example light blue, blue, dark blue and arrange smaller size of tiles on a single side of wall. Preferably use the side where you have your shower.
Selecting tiles depends on your creativity and ideas. Make sure it complements with the theme of your room or house. Bathroom tiles can be creative and would make your bathroom beautiful with an accurate decision.
