Bathroom Tile. Wednesday , September 20th , 2017 - 18:20:07 PM
Sure, you love the look of natural stone and ceramic tile in the bathroom, but you don’t love the cost. If you want an alternative that’s easy on the budget, low-maintenance, and comfortable underfoot, turn to vinyl. Water-resistant and antimicrobial, vinyl is available in hundreds of colors, patterns, and designs. It’s fairly easy to install (chances are you can do it yourself) and today’s styles offer enhanced realism. It’s warmer to the touch than tile, a plus for winter mornings, and has a cushioned feel that reduces leg fatigue. And if you knock a vase of flowers off the vanity, it probably won’t break. Most manufacturers offer unique features for stain protection, cushioning, durability, and antimicrobial properties.
When choosing tiles, consider how wet your bath gets. Moisture-prone baths require tiles that are impervious to water and safe to stand on in bare feet. Shiny, glazed tiles add glamour to walls and countertops but they can be slippery. They might be best for a guest bathroom that doesn’t have a shower or tub. Tiles with a matte or textured finish provide traction and are safer for wet feet. They’re a better choice for a bathroom used by children or the elderly.Manufacturers are introducing tile options that incorporate recycled materials, for a more eco-friendly product. For the ultimate indulgence, install radiant in-floor heat to warm up bare feet.
A tile backsplash in deep shades of gray sets a striking tone in this contemporary bathroom. Working with a dark-colored tile may seem daunting, but you can lighten up your space by incorporating at least one bright white element.
