When it comes to renovating a bathroom, nothing makes a bigger impression than tile – whether it’s on the floor, in the shower, or used for a decorative backsplash behind the sink.Bathroom Tiles Johannesburg
TileSpace expert shares what to consider when selecting tile for a new bathroom.
Determine Your Budget
Tile comes at all shapes, sizes, styles, and prices. The first step to selecting the tile that’s right for your bathroom is establishing a budget. Once your budget has been set, you’ll have a variety of options to choose from, including ceramic, porcelain, and natural stone. Ceramic is the least expensive option, with porcelain being the next step up.
The biggest advantage of porcelain tile is its through-body composition. If you chip a blue ceramic tile, you’ll find white below the surface, but a blue porcelain tile will be blue all the way through. Porcelain is also a more durable and water-resistant option.
Choose a Color Scheme
Building a colour palette can be challenging, so we recommend starting off by choosing your cabinet and vanity colours first. Once those have been selected, you can begin building a palette for your tile.
Consider Tile Size
While smaller tiles were once the norm, 12x24s have become the new standard: the bigger the tile, the bigger space seems. For those who want to stick to tradition, basketweave and subway tiles never go out of style. To create a transitional but timeless bathroom, 4×16 subway tiles put a modern twist on the classic look.
Shower Tile Should Reach the Ceiling
If you’re retiling a shower, be sure your new tile reaches all the way to the ceiling. This will create a much cleaner and more finished look and will ensure that drywall doesn’t get exposed to dirt or water.
