Tile remains a popular choice for bathrooms because it can be used in so many ways and is especially suitable for wet environments. Whether you choose bathroom tile for your floor, as a tub and shower surround, or just as a backsplash behind a sink, there are a number of bathroom tile designs and materials from which to choose.
There are a number of things to consider when choosing bathroom tiles for flooring, and one of the main things to think about is how slippery it can be when wet. Some appropriate flooring options include natural stone, textured ceramic and porcelain, and even rubber tiles, to name a few. Talk to a flooring expert at a home center to make sure you choose the right material for your project. He or she can also inform you of suitable cleaning products for tile flooring.
With shower and tub surrounds, you have a few options as well. Don’t forget that grout is used with tile and with that comes a commitment to keeping it clean. Consider using larger square tile pieces as they cover more square feet and therefore use less grout than their smaller counterparts.
Cultured marble is a great choice for showers and tub surrounds as well. This material is a composite of high strength molded polymer resins and natural stone dust. It’s beautiful and luxurious looking, but also very durable and resists staining. Installing cultured marble wall or tub surrounds is best left to a professional who will assemble on site. Because the pieces are larger, there are very few seams to worry about, making it a highly desirable bathroom tile material.
Real marble or granite are two more options, but they are considerably more expensive than a fiberglass shower or surround or even cultured marble or regular tile. It also needs to be installed by a professional.
A backsplash is also a must have in the bathroom. Fasade decorative thermoplastic backsplash tiles are water, impact and stain resistant and are an inexpensive, DIY project. Durable and timeless, these bathroom tiles add instant drama that leaves a lasting impression. They’re easy to install for a weekend remodeling project or affordable and stylish for new construction. The tiles are installed with double sided tape or liquid adhesive over existing plaster or drywall for quick easy installation in hours.
Aspect Peel & Stick Metal Tiles are another great option in the bath. They offer the modern look of metal at a fraction of the price and are available in 3x6 subway tiles or matted formats. Aspect Glass Tiles measure 3x6 and come in 6 stylish colors to match any decor. Both feature easy peel and stick installation, with no need for grout, offering a high-impact stylish solution that adds beauty and value to any home.
