Trying to find the best tile for your bathroom? While it might seem like a simple decision, the truth is there are more options available today than ever before. From gorgeously glazed ceramics to striking sandblasted stone, the only limits are your imagination… and your budget. Here are some of Go Mobile Flooring’s top tips for choosing tile that’s beautiful, durable, and easy to maintain:
Think About Budget
When it comes to choosing bathroom tile, aesthetics isn’t the only concern; you also need to consider the cost of various flooring options. In general, styles of flooring range in price from low-cost ceramic to high-end natural stone, with porcelain and glass options falling somewhere in the middle. Ultimately, the best tile for your bathroom is the one you can afford.
Consider the Cleaning
Natural stone tile might be one of the most beautiful, luxe options out there. However, it’s also one of the more difficult styles to clean. If you don’t have a lot of time for scrubbing showers – and don’t want to hire a professional – you might consider opting for maintenance-free porcelain or ceramic. Because these materials don’t have pores, they don’t hold onto dirt and grime like stone does.
Set on stonework in your master bath? Consider using this textured tile on the floor or another area that doesn’t get wet.
Keep Variety to a Minimum
Creating your bathroom color palette can be an exciting prospect and also a challenging one. After all, choosing too many shades can result in a bathroom that looks less than sophisticated. For best results, select the colors for your cabinets and vanity before choosing tiles. Then, choose your focal point tile (the most visually interesting one) and complement it with subtler shades. In general, designers recommend abiding by the rule of three when choosing bath tile, using a neutral shade, a rich shade, and an accent shade in a 70/20/10 distribution.
