Tiles are a pretty noticeable element in every bathroom. Floor tiles get lots of use every day yet we somehow rarely think about them. If you find yourself looking around your bathroom thinking about what you want to change, chances are you don’t always think about the tiles. And you should!
Let’s take a look at some twists to your bathroom tiles you can pull off when doing a bathroom remodel in Carmel Valley.
Before you begin
Make sure you got the measurements right. If you are about to make a complete tile makeover in your bathroom, you want to nail the measurements. The devil is in the details and you will be furious if you invest time and energy into decorating the bathroom with fantastic tiles, only to see that they don’t quite fit.
Tile up, tile down
Who says that the floor is the only place for tiles? There are plenty of other places you can tile up. Luckily, there is also plenty of choice when it comes to different tiles you can use. Go crazy with different colors, textures or even shapes. You can install intricate tiles around the mirror or on the door to spice up the bathroom decor. Get creative!
There is no limit to creativity. Why does the inside of your shower have to be generic? It absolutely doesn’t. Choose one shower wall and decorate it with colorful tiles. This simple addition will give the whole bathroom a new look, especially if you have the all-see-through shower doors.
Experiment with different tile sizes to get a more designer-like bathroom. Uniformity may be unimposing but it gets boring with time. After all, you are bound to pay your bathroom multiple daily visits, so why not make them worth your while? The combination of big and small tiles will modernize your bathroom and give you plenty of opportunity to personalize the space.
If your bathroom ceiling is not that high, you can do a little trick and make it look higher. How? Line the tiles up vertically. Simple, yet effective.
Illusion of space
Same-colored tiles may sound dull but they are a great solution if you want your bathroom to appear larger in space. Create a visual illusion by laying out tiles of the same color, preferably lighter shade. The bathroom will appear larger and also more elegant. After all, elegance is timeless.
Marble is definitely synonymous with luxury and elegance. By the same token, marble tiles are bound to give your bathroom a sense of style and wealth. You don’t have to choose marble tiles of the same size. To spice things up a little bit, choose different sizes for the flooring and even for the space around the mirror or window.
If you feel that less is more, as it often is, you don’t have to go all in on different colors, shapes and sizes. You can keep it simple by deciding on a specific look of your bathroom and choose the tiles to complement it, not add contrast. That way, you can line the tiles all the way up to the ceiling and still get the Zen-like vibe.
