Wall tiles are an essential part of any beautiful bathroom. They not only add aesthetic value to your home, but they also help the functionality of an easy-to-clean bathroom. Here are six tips to help you select the perfect wall tiles for your bathroom.
There are a lot of options for you to choose from when picking wall tiles. Ceramic tiles tend to be the most affordable and natural stones the most expensive. We have extensive relationships with local tile vendors that can help guide you in choosing tiles within your budget.
STYLE & COLOR
Your choice of style is dependent on several factors: your taste, environment, and budget too. You could go with a classical approach or a more modern choice. In addition to visiting our recommended tile showroom vendors to see tile samples first hand, our design team will build out 3D renderings so you can visualize how your tile will look with your vanity and other components of your bathroom. We can present multiple options so you are confident in your tile selection.
Picking the right material for your bathroom tiles is very important. There are four main types of materials you can choose from:
- Ceramic is easily the most affordable of materials and they make beautiful bathroom tiles.
- Porcelain is more durable than ceramic because it is denser. It is a bit more expensive than ceramic. Porcelain is available in a wider array of bright colors.
- Glass is appealing to the eyes, lightweight, and typically easier to install
- Natural stone as the name implies includes natural materials such as marble, limestone, and travertine. Natural stone is the material with the best grip.
While smaller tile sizes were in vogue, newer bathroom tile sizes tend to be bigger due to the evolving nature of the design. Today, many designers consider a tile as big as 12”x 24” to be a great size for your bathroom wall.
There are many color options when it comes to grout. Our designers will help guide you in choosing complementary grout colors based on the tile color.
Keep in mind you do not have to have floor to ceiling wall tile. Perhaps you will want sheetrock with a glossy paint to help keep the wall easier to clean. Some people opt for wallpaper. Some for shiplap. Again, with our team of designers, we can build out 3D models so you can easily envision how your selected tile will look as part of your bathroom along with the other materials used.
In summary, whether you are building a new home or renovating your existing home, our team is here to guide you in the wall tile selection process.
