Tile is a beautiful and luxurious finish for your newly remodeled bathroom. It is designed to create a spa-like aesthetic and easy to maintain. In the bathroom, tile works well for flooring, showers, backsplashes, and decorative accent walls.
Since your new bathroom needs to meet both form and functional needs, consider not only colors, patterns and textures that you prefer, but also consider your needs for safety and comfort. Accessible bathrooms can include large format tiles with slip resistant finishes. Radiant heat installed beneath tile bathroom and shower floors and shower bench seating can add a spa-like comfort to your bath.
Shapes, Patterns, and Finishes of Tile to Choose From
Currently, homeowners seek out a variety of shapes and styles. Adding a personal touch to your bathroom can be as easy as implementing one of these tile shapes:
- Basket Weave
- Fish Scale
In addition to unique tile shapes, there are other tile trends to consider. For areas that won’t make contact with water, metallic tiles are wonderful for a decorative wall. Graphics and unique, asymmetrical “art” walls are becoming popular by mixing color, style, shape, and texture to create a one-of-a-kind accent wall for your bathroom. Homeowners can select mosaics, or solid shades, matte or gloss finishes for tiles used in the bathroom’s shower, niche, flooring, or walls.
Installing slip resistant tiles is a great safety precaution for many households. Homeowners aging in place, or those with mobility issues need to consider avoiding tiles with slick finishes. Slip resistant tiles don’t have to put a damper on color and style choices; for example, you can have custom treatments added to the tiles you choose. Ask your contractor about slip-resistant treatments that can be added to your tiles, but keep in mind it can cost more than standard tiles due to additional labor, supplies, and tools.
