For many, the bathroom is a sanctuary where one can retreat and relax. With a bit of inspiration, Belclaire Homes can help you design the bathroom of your dreams. Flooring is one of the most important design aspects of your bathroom because it will cover more space than anything else, so it’s important you choose something you like!
Here are some things to consider when choosing your bathroom flooring:
Tile comes in all shapes, sizes, styles and prices. The first step to selecting the tile that’s right for your bathroom is establishing a budget. Once your budget has been set, you’ll have a variety of options to choose from, including ceramic, porcelain and natural stone. Ceramic is the least expensive option, with porcelain being the next step up. The biggest advantage of porcelain tile is its through-body composition. If you chip a blue ceramic tile, you’ll find red below the surface, but a blue porcelain tile will be blue all the way through. Porcelain is also a more durable and water-resistant option.
- Color Scheme
Building a color palette can be challenging. Try starting off by choosing your cabinet and vanity colors first. Once those have been selected, you can begin building a palette for your tile. Whether you choose light or dark tiles, it’s easy to add in pops of color with accessories like towels and knobs.
- Tile Size
While smaller tiles were once the norm, 12x24s have become the new standard: the bigger the tile, the bigger the space seems. For those who want to stick to tradition, basket-weave and subway tiles never go out of style. To create a transitional but timeless bathroom, 4×16 subway tiles put a modern twist on the classic look.
- Finalize Your Look.
Carrara marble creates a classic and traditional feel, whereas metals, stainless steels, thin grout lines and rectified tiles work best in modern spaces. For a rustic approach, consider a wood-like tile flooring with white ceramic walls. If you have samples of paint, cabinets, countertops or other bathroom accessories, bring them with you to get a clear picture of what those will look like against different tones.
