Glass accent tile is really exciting right now," says Bill Wolf, owner of DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen in Grand Rapids, Mich. Used for backsplashes, shower walls and as accents on floors, glass tiles add a depth, sparkle and luminescence not found in ceramic or natural stone.
Looking for a tile that complements either traditional or contemporary bathrooms? Gary Fratianne, owner of Creative Kitchens, Baths and Closets in Westlake, Ohio, says the natural choice is metal wall tile.
We all love the look of hardwood flooring, but most contractors say it has no place in a moist bathroom. The next best thing may be faux hardwood porcelain tile.
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.
