5 Top Tips for Choosing the Right Bathroom Tiles

Looking to invest in some new bathroom tiles? Here are five top tips well worth taking to ensure you get the right tiles, at the right price, and perhaps most importantly the right amount to do the job. Size Small or mosaic tiles work better in bigger spaces as the grouting and angles created by using smaller tiles create a pattern which can all too easily overwhelm a small bathroom or en suite, turning it from a relaxing and calm space into an intense and imposing one. In contrast, smaller tiles work well in larger bathrooms, especially when opting to tile a while bathroom, floor to ceiling in classic white tiles; the grout lines in this instance help to break up and dampen the otherwise starkness doing so produces and turn a big bathroom from a potentially intimidating space into a clean yet stylish one. Colour Larger bathroom spaces can take a little colour. The lack of wall papers and wall paints and carpets within a larger bathroom can all too easily result in creating a big, sterile and cold look when tiled wall to ceiling, and also featuring floor tiles or vinyl. Hence, save the colourful and mosaic tiles for the family bathroom or larger bathrooms. Meanwhile, for those aghast at the idea of using colourful tiles, that needn’t mean sticking to an all white bathroom.

These sandy and stony tiles are fantastic at creating a calm, yet warm and earthy vibe within a bathroom and you can explore a wide range of them via London Tile Shop’s collection. Further, it is worthwhile paying them a visit online as buying directly from a supplier such as the Tile Yard is likely to cost you far less when buying tiles than heading out to a bathroom showroom or store as it cuts out the need to pay a middle man. Pattern Patterned tiles like coloured tiles are best reserved for use in bigger bathrooms. Whilst some might be tempted to ‘inject some colour’ into a smaller bathroom or en suite by means of adding a border of patterned tiles or alternating them with plain white or natural tiles, this rarely proves a sensible idea; small bathrooms are full of angles, surfaces and fixtures that already draw the eye and need negotiating and processing; camouflaging or adding to them by means of patterned tiles or literally drawing attention to how close the walls are is only going to over stimulate  and overwhelm the senses, and emphasise the lack of space.
