Tile ideas for your bathroom floor design

Some tile ideas can help you consider all your options when it comes to redesigning your bathroom floor. Bathroom floor tiles come in a wide variety of sizes, shapes, textures and patterns and they are to be considered as the basis for every bathroom design. For instance, ceramic floor tile is used mainly because of its resistance to dampness, durability, its ease of cleaning and its 100% safety to walk on even if it is wet. So, if you choose ceramic tiles for your bathroom, you should use tiles that are designed to be slip-resistant in order to improve your bathroom safety. If you decide to buy unglazed floor tiles and have them installed in your bathroom, you will have to wash them on a regular basis because this type of tiles are more likely to absorb stains quite quickly.

Bathroom floor tiles can be rectangles, squares, octagons or hexagons while their accent pieces can be small diamond-shaped and narrow. Here are some ideas for you to use in order to get the best bathroom floor design.If you want to use solid and ceramic tiles in your bathroom, you should add some tile borders coming in a different color than the rest of the tile floor or you can create a floor border that alternates more colors. This visual treatment will provide your bathroom with a more interesting design. If you want to use the same ceramic tiles both for the bathroom walls and floor and you want these tiles to have the same color, you should choose a different size for the tile to be installed on the wall. You can also lay these wall tiles diagonally in order to create an interesting effect.

Another bathroom tile idea you might use is to select a grout color in order to achieve a contrast with the existing ceramic color tile. So, if you are planning to use white tiles, you should go for red, yellow or blue grout in order to get the wanted contrast. But make sure that you apply sealers to all the grout lines, especially in the areas that are prone to heavy wear because these sealers can protect and preserve the initial grout colors. If you want to have a blue bathroom, you should add some blue decorative tiles for the bathroom walls or use textures, shapes and borders in order to provide extra visual interest and avoid transforming your bathroom into a monotonous space (visually speaking). You might also select rows of your bathroom walls in order to add some blue tiles placed diagonally.

If you want to provide your bathroom with a more contemporary look and style, you should consider using some bold and bright colors with graphics or shapes that are placed against the plain backgrounds. Well chosen contemporary style fixtures and accessories can provide you with a modern-looking space. But if you are more interested to get a Victorian or romantic look for your bathroom, you should use some floral floor tiles coming in soft colors such as light blue or green and add some hand painted ceramic sinks. If you want to get a Mediterranean look for your bathroom, you should go for the terracotta tiles mixed with hand-painted or Mexican tiles for the bathroom floor. For the bathroom counter top, you can mix plain color tiles with hand-painted ones. Such bathroom tile and tile color ideas are quite important because the bathroom floor tiles can have a great impact on the overall look of your bathroom. When you are looking for the right floor tiles for your bathroom design, make sure that you consider their pattern, suitability and the materials from which they are made.
