Bathroom tiling is often seen as a just a practical choice when designing and building a bathroom. It’s a wet environment, so of course it’s better to have the water stopping power of tile, which won’t mold or allow water to seep through into the main floorboards. Furthermore, tile is easy to clean and can be mopped up. Moreover, it allows water to evaporate more easily, which can help to reduce moisture damaged in the rest of the room. Without a doubt, it’s the best possible material for a bathroom. However, many people don’t think about how much color and style they can add to create a stylish new home with the skillful use of porcelain tiles.
Exploring style with bathroom tiling can be a fun adventure. There are so many books available and different shows online and on television, which can help guide homeowners in making the right decision for their home as well. With tile, it’s even easier because homeowners can often do much of the work themselves, which greatly reduces the cost of installation. More time can then be spent on getting the bathroom just right in terms of look.
Most people think of bathroom tile as the really sterile looking white tile. This is not only boring, but can make bathrooms appear unnecessarily bright. Much of the latest design in tile is not just using different colored tiles, but using the right tiles with the right lighting. Many homeowners have begun to use a great variety of earth tones and slate colors. These don’t reflect light as strongly and can make the bathroom a much calmer place to be in than before. Whenever you choose a color think about the brightness of your lighting as well. Very subtle color variations can be lost when especially bright lights are used.
In addition to this detail on new tiles, many homeowners have begun to think of using tiles to make their rooms as variable in color as the rest of their home. Homeowners have started to use different colors for their floor and different ones for their wall. This makes the bathroom much more visually interesting and provides a lot of options in terms of decoration. Because homeowners are using tiles, they can put a splash of color wherever they want instead of having to simply do one bland color for the whole room. With these great options, homeowners can make any room in their house their own.
