Everyone has a distinct view about the dimensions of tiles that you should use for your bathroom floor, particularly if you try to create your little bathroom feel bigger. So what advice are you supposed to bring on board and what should you overlook? Bathroom Tiles Cape Town
There are a few considerations to keep in mind when selecting your floor tiles. First of all, it’s important to consider the look and feel you’d like to show your guests, and most importantly the look and feel you’d like to see yourself–after all, you’re going to see and use this room every day!
As with all that goes to interior design, it is very subjective to choose the correct tiles for your venture as everyone has different tastes, wants and requires.
The larger the tiles, the smaller the room looks, or so they say. In general, interior designers will say that in a small bathroom you should not use large tiles (such as 60×60 cm or 80×80 cm), as it will make the room look smaller. On the other side, if you use a small tile for your tiny bathroom, more grout lines will be available, this will also make your bathroom look tiny … so what should you do!?
You can either use medium-sized tiles or choose bigger tiles, just make sure they have edges rectified and use a matching grout colour. This will improve the flow of your bigger tiles and will not disrupt the scale of the space.
It is also recommended that you choose for your tiny bathroom a neutral colour system. Choosing brighter colours for your tiles in the bathroom, such as white, cream or even light grey, will assist create your tiny bathroom feel much larger thanks to the sheets that reflect more light than darker coloured sheets.
These light tiles allow the eye to ‘ flow ‘ across the room and will make your roof appear higher if it is also used on walls.
Our ultimate tip is to put your tiles in a diagonal pattern to make your tiny bathroom look larger. Diagonal patterns make our minds think a room is larger than it really is. When laid down this way, we don’t see the ordinary squared tiles, so our eyes are attracted to the diagonal lines instead, while our brain has much more difficulty finding out how many tiles are truly there.
Another way of making small bathrooms look larger is by using rectangular sheets, like 30×60 cm in size. This will offer the illusion that the walls are larger than they genuinely are if you put rectangle sheets horizontally or on their side moving up the wall or along the ground. If you lay vertically the same tile, when used on the floor, you will make the room look larger or the room longer.
