The bathroom is the most popular room in a domestic home to find tiles. This is largely down to the hygienic and water resistant solutions they have compared to wallpaper, carpets and most paints.
In addition, tiles can add potential value to a bathroom and offer some unique finishes which can’t be matched by other materials.
- Glass: A popular choice for bathrooms, glass tiles come in a wide variety of colors and finishes. Although glass tile is a bit more expensive compared to other tile options, it features a shiny surface that adds a polished look to your space.
- Ceramic: Typically less expensive than glass tile, ceramic tile is ideal for damp environments like the bathroom. Easy to clean and install, ceramic tiles feature a surface that decals can adhere to (like in a kids’ bathroom) or easily be painted if you want to redecorate in the future.
- Stone: For a more neutral look, consider stone tile with a natural feel and organic patterns. Pebble and rock tiles offer a unique and textural touch to your bathroom.
- Porcelain: Porcelain tile is an expensive option featuring a dense, hard surface. It is ideal for bathroom spaces because it is not very absorbent.
