After a hard day at the office, or a long day working in the kitchen, or taking care of the kids or family, the first place you would go after a good meal is to take a break and unwind in the bathroom tub. For many families you may have a bathroom tub and for those who don’t, a nice good shower is ideal for those long stressful days. When you walk into the bathroom, the first thing you expect is to feel relaxed and the importance of your bathroom tiles is paramount!
Designing the bathroom with excellent tiles can make your bathroom stand out – not just in terms of aesthetics but also in terms of feeling good and psychological and emotional satisfaction. Whether you plan to spend a couple of minutes or a long hour in your bathroom, you should love to be there.
So how does a bathroom standout ? How should one deal with the selection, placement and installation of tiles ? We at Lavish Ceramics will take some time out to explain what makes a bathroom , indeed it starts and ends with the tiles!
Creating the illusion of a larger floor space, plain-coloured floor tiles are a great solution.For years there was a belief and a myth that small tiles in a small bathroom work best to make the space appear larger, however, the numerous grouting lines can, in fact, make the space seem much smaller.
One of the easiest ways to give your room a spacious look is to use lots of white — white tile, white paint, a white vanity and so on. The way the human mind works is amazing and white allows you to feel you are in a larger room and the feeling of a large bathroom reduces the sense of feeling claustrophobic and dizzy. The larger the bathroom feels, the more you are able to spend more time in the space as well. This noncolor-color of white naturally recedes, making the space look bigger. It also reflects any available light, rather than absorbing it. However, that being said, looking bigger does not always mean the bathroom stands out. Using high quality tiles that match the feel of the rest of your house also is ideally recommended to ensure that you feel comfortable in that space too.
Another great strategy and chain of thought is fully tiling your bathroom which helps it to make it classy, more formal, and very clean cut. There are several different ways you can customize and personalize it with different kinds of tiles. The only thing to take note is if you cover the walls with tiles, you may find it harder to keep things on them. However, if you are not bothered about hanging frames in the bathroom, the tiles can give stronger impact meanings too.
The bathroom for years is your safe space. We as humans go there for nature calls but more importantly for that little bit of privacy and the get free from the world approach too. Sometimes popularity works well and subway tiles are by far the most popular bathroom tile today. Subway tiles can be used both on walls and floors to give a seamless look. Easy to install and budget friendly, subway tiles in contrasting colors can be used to create colorful horizontal lines and other patterns.
While designing your bathroom with tiles, consider the following thoughts to make your bathroom stand out.
Floor tiles and wall tiles can match, but certainly do not have to. Most importantly, floor and wall tiles should create a cohesive look by either combining monochromatic colors, coordinating patterns with colors, or pairing complementary solid colors together for an aesthetically pleasing result.
