Bathroom tile designs are often one of the most important factors when considering bathroom design. However, there are a lot of bathroom tile designs and a wide range of wall and floor tile shapes, sizes and materials to choose from; it may take time for you to choose the bathroom tile design that you like.
Choosing where you want the bathroom tiles placed should be a first step. You do not have to cover every inch of the surface of the bathroom with tiles, but you need put more than a few around the water collecting reservoir area. The most sensible option is to consider where the walls and the floor will have the most contact with water. Showers, bathtubs, sinks, and often the floor are the key areas of the bathroom.
Then, you need to consider the issue of bathroom design and style. Traditional country designs can have a bathroom tile or slate for a rustic finish. Modern bathroom mirrors can have a tile or Italian designer glass tiles for a modern finish. For the colonial style, black and white checkered tile will always give an amazing classic look.
The size and layout of your bathroom tile designs should be the next consideration. Large tiles, of course, will cover a large area while small tiles are ideal for small areas. Mosaics can be time consuming, but with experience or tips considered, you can create a single focal point. By placing rectangular tiles on the side, you can make a small bathroom appear bigger; adding a diamond in the center of the wall will create depth and orientation.
There are many materials and colors to choose from, so take your time and consider the overall effect you are trying to achieve. Bathroom tiles can be made of ceramic, glass, stone, metal and other natural materials. Ceramic tile is the most popular, and these come in a variety of colors and finishes. Bright white tiles may be cheap, and provide a cost effective solution to achieve a bright light, and clean bathroom, but with there being not much contrast or colour this can have a clinical effect. Use these instead as base, but add dark tiles at odd places to break the monotony.
Glass tiles are more expensive, but they can really add to the wow factor of the bathroom. The glass can provide a greater depth of color which reflects more light, and it can blur images on the side. Shells and other objects of novelty can be merged into a unique design with your bathroom tiles. Natural materials such as cork, wood and stone often add a rustic effect to the bathrooms; a polished finish can add a fantastic dimension to your modern bathroom design. Natural materials often have a tactile quality that you will not find in other materials. As for metal, it often produces a reflective surface that is also part of a very modern design.
Now that you have this design bug why not consider DIY headboards, these are also something you could consider planning and building yourself if you want to spice up your bedroom decor and make your home truly unique to you.
Once you get a love for D.I.Y in the home you will never be bored again! (at least that is what my wife always tells me!).
