With the myriad of decisions facing you when you decide to remodel or create a bathroom in your home, the one you expect to be most enjoyable is choosing the tiles. They set the tone for the entire look and feel of the finished space and will likely be the first thing you notice.Bathroom Wall Tile Cape Town
Well, fear not! Today, we share our top 5 tips for choosing your tiles, making it easier than ever to narrow down what you really want to make that dream bathroom a reality.
Choose Your Wow-Factor Feature
What do you imagine will be the first thing to catch your eye when you walk into your bathroom? Will it be a gorgeous shower enclosure? Perhaps consider using your main tile in this space. Will it be a free-standing roll-top tub?
Then choose the perfect feature wall tile to become its backdrop. Maybe it’s a stunning antique you’re repurposing as a vanity? Think about what tiles you’ll want to use for your backsplash. If you decide early on what the focal point of your bathroom is from the start, you can then begin to choose tiles that will complement and enhance your chosen feature.
Consider Your Accent Tiles
Once you’ve chosen your feature tile, then consider just one or two other tiles to compliment it. You’ll want to make sure that the complementary tiles do just that – choosing too many bold tiles in a room will create too many focal points, so something neutral, plain, or a simply textured style should do nicely here, allowing your stand-out tile to take centre stage. Many of our ranges contain a number of tile patterns and styles which will complement each other perfectly for an easy way to a cohesive look.
Choose Your Floor Tiles
If you’ve already chosen the feature tile for your space, you may want to consider your bathroom floor tiles merely as complementary tiles. However, if you’ve opted for something a little simpler for the walls then the latest trend is to create a little wow-factor with a patterned floor.
Tile Size vs Room Size
Generally speaking, if your room size is small (as many bathrooms are), you may wish to hold off on using any large format tiles in the space. Choose tiles that will complement the size of your room, so medium-sized tiles for a mid-size bathroom or mosaic tiles for a very small cloakroom.
Consider the Practicality of Finishes
There’s no doubt that a smooth tile will always be easier to clean. Water may have more of a tendency to settle on heavily embossed tiles, natural tiles with dips and crevices, and pebble tiles and the like, so bear in mind that you may need to be a bit more tenacious about a cleaning schedule. When choosing your tiles, ask yourself how willing you are to be vigilant about keeping your tiles looking their best over the lifetime of your bathroom.
