If you are not an expert in bathroom remodeling, one of the main challenges you will encounter while remodeling your bathroom is how to select tiles for this space. Choosing tiles for the bathroom/shower is often confusing owing to the several options available. Dulles Kitchen and Bath presents the following tips that will guide you when it comes to tile selection for your shower.
- Create a feature wall by using another tile choice
To accentuate the bathroom, many designers create feature walls, which incorporate a completely different tile choice than the one that is used in the rest of the bathroom. Many people go for ledgestone tile for the feature wall because it creates a stacked-rock appearance, which is appealing to many. However, it is important for you to be wary of selecting ledgestone tile if you believe your water stains the tiles.
- Proceed with caution when it comes to mosaic tiles
It is no secret that mosaic tiles are a favorite on the bathroom floors and walls. They create visual intrigue, which increases the interest of the bathroom. When selecting mosaic tiles, it is imperative that you pick a mosaic tile that has absolute contact from the backer board to the tile. In addition, this contact should run from the tile to the wall. The reason for emphasizing on absolute contact is the fact that you can never be too sure about the glue on a piece of tile.
- If you must go with glass, go with small colored glass
Glass is a difficult tile material to work with, but if you must, then please go with small colored glass. Clear glass tiles are known to show the moisture trapped within them, which makes the entire bathroom look awful. Small colored glass tile is better because they are opaque, which means you will not see the trapped moisture.
