Updating elements of a bathroom can bring about enormous change and make your bathroom a place that reflects your personal style and surrounds you in comfort.
Part of the process of updating a bathroom may be the replacement of a vanity, a bathtub, or a shower; but for a truly thorough change, the replacement of bathroom tile can have you feeling as if you’ve just stepped in to a whole new room.
Tile has so much visual impact because it covers so much of the room. When chosen with care, it can ultimately set the tone of the room and single-handedly determine the overall theme. All elements of the bathroom will then follow suit; working to complement the tile and create a cohesive room.
When it comes to choosing tile, the possibilities are virtually endless; light colors, dark colors, solid colors, patterns, ceramic, stone – you can create the drama you desire by choosing tile that fits within a particular style.
Choosing color is just as important as choosing the actual tile. Choosing warm colors will warm the entire room and give it a natural, calming feel; cooler colors will give a bathroom a clean, crisp, contemporary feel.
Many professionals advise against choosing bright colors, as the tile can quickly overwhelm the entire room. Instead, it is suggested that you stick with a more neutral palette and add deeper colors in the form of accessories.
Bathroom tile is not limited to covering just the floor. The integration of tile throughout the bathroom can pull a room together and add a variety of interesting textures. Tile used in this capacity is often used throughout shower stalls, around bathtubs, around vanities, and on segments of the wall.
You can handle installation on your own but keep in mind that the laying of tile – especially ceramic – can be somewhat tricky. There is of course professional installation which although pricey, in most cases is well worth the money.
One of the drawbacks to using this on the floor is that it can often be cold. But owners have found ways to combat the chill by using complementary bathroom rugs and even installing heating coils underneath the floor.
In an effort to choose the tile that is appropriate for your particular bathroom, do some shopping around. You will find a wide selection from which to choose at home improvement retailers and flooring stores.
Often you can take a sample of the tile home with you to see how it will look in your bathroom; this is particularly helpful because wall color and lighting can significantly alter how tile appears in the room.
The bathroom is a place of refuge and relaxation. More than just a practical room, it demonstrates how you do not have to sacrifice form for function. With the addition of elements that mean something special to you, a bathroom can be transformed. And there’s no better way to establish the mood of your bathroom than by the choosing of dramatic and high-quality bathroom tile.
