Choosing the right tiles for your bathroom can be a taunting task. With so many styles, shapes, sizes and materials to choose from it can be difficult to know where to start. To help you plan your tiles, here is a comprehensive guide from the team at Classic Waterproofing.
Before you even look at tiles, try to envision what your dream bathroom looks like. Minimalist and neutral? Geometric and abstract? Warm and natural? Decorative and elegant? This will help you immediately narrow down what sort of tiles you should be looking at.
Another big consideration is the sizing of your tiles. For flooring tiles in Australia, the most popular size is 300x300mm, but if you are looking for something bigger or rectangular opt for 300x600mm. It’s always best to choose a larger sized tile for your flooring as this will see the most traffic, dirt and grime, so the less grouting the better. The same goes for shower backings. For the rest of your walls you can opt for smaller tiles or accent tiles to stand out or find something similar to your flooring for a more seamless look.
While it can be tempting to add a variety of tiles into your bathroom, the rule of thumb is no more than three. Start with a flooring tile and then consider how to contrast (or blend) with your wall tiling. You can then incorporate a 3 tile to create accenting or a feature wall (this looks especially effective surrounding your shower).
