There are several tile examples laid out for choosing the right option.Bathroom remodeling projects are a chance to open up the potential of your space and add in some of your unique style. From understated and minimalist to exaggerated and bold, bathroom tiles bring a lot of energy to your space. Our bathroom tile suggestions below will help you make the best choices to make this your favorite project. 

Finalize Your Bathroom Tile Budget

Before even thinking about the tiles specifically, review your finances to set a project budget. Coming up with an accurate budget may involve your contractor who will have greater insight into the prices of materials and labor. Once you have an understanding of what you can spend, you will be better informed to choose tiles. There are a variety of tile types, including ceramic, natural stone, and porcelain. Ceramic is the most affordable, but once chipped will show white. Porcelain tiles cost a bit more, but its color goes all the way through, providing greater value. 

Choose Your Must-Have Tile

Often, a homeowner will find a tile that they love, one that brings their theme together. This special tile could have a unique quality you simply adore, or it could be a solid color that you want to use for most of the room. No matter your selection, your focus tile will form the beginning of the rest of your bathroom design. Take your time to choose the one you like, but enjoy the process of letting your dream design come through!

Keep Your Plan to Three Different Tiles (at Max)

Starting with your dream tile, plan out the rest of the tile sequence for your bathroom design. If your focus tile is more active and interesting, balance that with more muted colors or themes. Or spice up your plain tile with a splash of enthusiasm in your next choice. Consider having floor, wall, and accent tiles as an option for your design.

Consider Tile Size

Next, comes the tile size. Tiling trends continue to change, so choose what makes you and your family happy. Bigger tiles can help make a small space appear larger. Small tiles help fill out a minimalist bathroom decor. Subway tiles and the basketweave effect are staples that won’t go out of style. You can find most of your styles and color selections in a variety of sizes, so you can feel the freedom to match them with your tile size.
