If you’re in the middle of a bathroom remodeling project, you’ve probably thought about adding new tile floors to this room in your home. Here are some tips for picking out the right tile during your bathroom remodeling project, so you’re happy with your new tile floors for years to come.
- Pick one “must-have” tile—When you start off your bathroom remodeling project, there’s probably one tile you came across that you absolutely have to have in your bathroom. Make sure you pick out this tile first and use it to coordinate with the other tiles that will go in your bathroom.
- Try to stick to three types of tiles—Remodeling your bathroom is a great way to incorporate a fun tile design into this room. However, try to stick to three different colors or styles as you pick out the tile for your bathroom.
- Consider maintenance—When you pick out your bathroom tiles, think about how much maintenance they’re going to require. For example, while natural stone tile is stunning, it’s more porous than other types of tile and often requires more maintenance.
- Think about scale—Keep the size of your bathroom and the features in it in mind as you pick out new tile. For instance, you wouldn’t want to inundate a smaller guest bathroom with huge tiles, and you wouldn’t want to downplay the design in your large master bathroom by going with very small tiles.
