can make a dramatic difference in the look and feel of your newly remodeled bathroom. Floor tile comes in a wide variety of materials
from marble, granite and ceramic to limestone, vinyl and travertine. I can order any tile that you find on the market. I can
bring tile samples to you if you can give me a basic idea of the materials that you are considering.
One of the
biggest factors that goes into determining the material you use is the finish that you are looking for. If you are interested
in a European look I will probably suggest a natural stone with an unfilled finish. Bathroom tiles come in a huge variety
of textures in each of the above materials. Allow me to help you make these decisions easily and efficiently.
last factor that will play into your bathroom tile choice is the pattern that you are going for. Square tiles in a traditional
square pattern is a classic look, but you might want to spice up your flooring with one of the many patterns that are out
there. If you do want a pattern, I will point you to the right combination of materials, finishes and patterns to get what
you need to make your dream bathroom a reality.
WALLS & SHOWER STALLS
Want to add some personality to your bathroom? Try adding some splash on the walls.
Start by selecting the main wall tile, which typically is made of ceramic, porcelain,
marble or limestone. Many people have moved away from small tiles to large tiles, and are varying the patterns.
The old prototype of the 4-by-4 is looking pretty dated. Most people want rectangular
wall tiles in the 8-inch by 12-inch sizes or modular tiles in 6 by 6, 12 by 12, 6 by 12 that you mix and match to make a pattern.
Then zero in on one or two areas that
you want to emphasize. Try:
- the shower stall
- the deck around a whirlpool tub
- framing a section in front of the vanity
If you're concerned about
resale value, keep the extremes limited to confined areas, such as the shower stall.
options in decorative tile are almost endless, ranging from a wall border of tiles with a raised rope or seashell design to
hand-painted porcelain tiles to multi-colored glass tiles. While sizes vary, many decorative tiles used as borders are 2-inches
high by 6, 8 or 12-inches wide.
Overall, people have moved away from
shiny finishes toward matte or rustic finishes. In stones, look for tumbled marble and honed limestone, which have a casual
look that blend with the soft look of earth tones. Unlike the polished stones, they have irregular shapes and a muted appearance.
Among the popular designs are:
- soft, earth tones --
camels, sage, creams
- ceramic patterns that resemble natural stone
- real granite
- tumbled marble for an
Old World look
- glass and metal tiles -- as randomly placed accents; borders or on a full wall
Glass tiles add a sense of freshness and tranquility.
They often are arranged in a row with several different colors that blend together and accent other decor. The finish on glass
is much different than ceramic -- it's a deeper, more layered look.
How to Blend
While many of these materials can
be mixed together, they key is blending the right shades, textures and color tones. You can put ceramic with natural materials--granite
and marble and limestone--and glass with marble and granite and limestone, but the colors need to work together.
While marble can create a stunning look, it involves more maintenance than ceramic. It is a porous material and should
be sealed once every one to two years, depending on how much the area is used. For example, if you have a steam shower that
you use every day, you should seal it more often because the steam and heat will break down the treatment.
