For a totally finished look, Wolf may suggest removing a window’s existing wood casing and replacing it with tile. "We call it ’picture framing’ the window," he explains.

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.
