Planning Your Bathroom Tile Design

Deciding on a bathroom tile design is the first step in creating a cozy and inviting bathroom. It is important to plan the design ahead of time to make the actual installation smooth and hassle-free. The three important steps that you should take when planning your bathroom tile design and installation are: selecting your bathroom tiles, identifying your bathroom theme, and getting the materials and tools needed for the installation.

Selecting your bathroom tiles

  • If you want a beautiful tile design for your bathroom, choose ceramic tiles or stone tiles. They can provide your bathroom with an elegant appeal and induce an inviting feeling. However, ceramic and stone tiles can be cold to the touch. If you do not mind their cold feel, then they are the perfect tile choice for your bathroom.
  • Make sure the tiles you get are nonporous and durable. Ceramic tiles offer good resistance to dampness. Consider tiles with slip-resistant surfaces for superior bathroom safety.
  • Most bathroom tiles are rectangular, square, hexagonal, and octagonal. Choose a shape that compliments the size of your bathroom. Get small tiles if you have a small bathroom. Narrow and diamond-shaped tiles can perfectly accent your bathroom and make it look bigger as well.

Identifying your bathroom theme

  • If you want a streamlined look, consider getting tiles with solid colors. You can give them accent by adding tile bordeBlue Bathroom Tilesrs. Just make sure the borders are of a different color than the tiles to create a highly noticeable design.
  • For a contemporary look, choose tiles with bright and bold colors with simple designs and graphics. You can install them against walls with a plain background to make them stand out. Adding contemporary-style bathroom fixtures can further enhance the modern appearance of your bathroom.
  • If you want a romantic bathroom, get soft-colored tiles in pink, light blue, or light green with floral designs. Match them with a handcrafted ceramic sink and a wood flooring to get a romantic Victorian-style bathroom. 
  • If you prefer the Mediterranean look, you can combine terracotta bathroom tiles with a Mexican handcrafted flooring system.

Getting the materials and tools for installation

  • Before purchasing the materials you need for your bathroom tiling project, take accurate measurements of your bathroom area first like the floors, walls, and ceiling.
  • Calculate the number of bathroom tiles you need based on your bathroom measurements. Make sure that your calculation is correct to prevent over- or underestimating the number of tiles. Do not forget to consider the gaps between each tile when calculating the number of bathrooms you should purchase.
  • If your budget still allows it, you can order extra bathroom tiles in case some break during the installation. This way, you do not have to rush to the hardware store to get new ones.
  • Before getting on with the installation, prepare all the tools that you need. If you do not have the complete tools, do not buy those that you do not have. The cheaper and most practical way to complete your tools is by renting those that you do not have.

Installing bathroom tiles is really difficult and time-consuming. However, it can become easier with proper planning. If you want more bathroom tiling tips, you can always consult professional tile installers.
