Ceramic tiles have been the standard tiling applied to bathroom floors over the past years. Though, recently, people are starting to use them on their entire house. The reason for that is the huge durability of ceramic tiles. They are incredibly durable and easy to maintain, not to mention that they are resistant to water and changes of temperature. Also, you could find them at any price range. It’s your taste and budget that decide what your bathroom will look like eventually.
You should always keep in mind the size of your bathroom. If you’re blessed with a large one, consider using ceramic mosaic tiles which come in every color and shape possible. They are tough enough to resist scratching and they are also slip-resistant due to the unglazed surface. Get creative as much as you can and watch.
Ceramic bathroom tiles come in many shapes, sizes, and colors. Some are simple and plain while others are bold and colorful with different prints and patterns. You could even combine these both in your bathroom by applying plain-colored tiles in cream shade, for instance, while choosing black tiles with cream prints for the border. That kind of style will go perfectly well with minimalist chrome fixtures.
You could have ceramic bathroom tiles that mimic hardwood flooring or stone tiles, except ceramic tiles don’t require such high maintenance. Also, try playing with the color of the grout which could add a beautiful touch to your bathroom, and remember, the grout should be sealed so as to keep it from discoloration and to prevent the growth of mildew.
Ceramic tiles shouldn’t be used exclusively for the floor. By using them for the countertops and backsplashes, you are making a whole new look for your bathroom and adding a great visual interest. Although, always try looking for tiles with a little texture, especially for the floor to prevent slippage. Surf online magazines and look at different photos of different ceramic tiles to unleash your inspiration and creativity skills.
