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.
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.
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.
Vinyl planks. Made to resemble hardwood, vinyl planks are a worry-free way to incorporate the look of wood in the bath. Features include true-to-life textures and beveled ends and edges, and they come in the same size as wood planks.
