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.
For homeowners who prefer to let nature drive their designs, stone is the way to go. It’s usually the most expensive flooring choice, but natural stone tile transforms an ordinary bathroom into a luxurious getaway. Stone tile gains rich character over time and lasts for decades. The surface can be cold and slippery, but radiant in-floor heat and slip-minimizing finishes can help address these concerns.
One day you’re loving subtle lace accents and the next day … doilies everywhere. Yikes. Maybe you prefer black in generous amounts, so you accidentally turn your home into a dark abyss. Your go-to design choices can easily cross the line from a fun proclivity into too much, so it’s essential to seek out materials that let you break up the monotony, like fun, unexpected tiles.
If you simply can’t resist the idea of a subway tile bathroom, consider putting a new twist on this timeless look, such as a bright color or an unexpected pattern. Vibrant yellow tiles help this compact bathroom feel larger.
