Small Bathroom Tile Ideas – The small bathrooms present design challenges. Not only should space be functional, but many owners wish to also make the room look bigger than it really is. While the proper arrangement and proper bathroom accessories can help, the tile can also help improve the appearance of the room. With the number of ceramic tile options on the market in 2011, it is possible to maximize the potential of any small bathroom space.
For some small contemporary bathrooms, the most sensitive tile treatment is large format, simple tile. Use tiles that are 12 inches or more, with uniformity of shape and color. Lay the tiles in a straight pattern for square bathroom floors and on a diagonal in long, narrow bathrooms. The smaller number of grout lines on the larger tiles, together with a solid color, will help to create the illusion of space on the floor. Match the color of the tile grout, and try to use tiles with straight edges to minimize the size of the grout joint and improve the effect.
A general rule in small bathrooms is to keep the light combination of colors. This applies to the soil too. Choose light colored ceramic tiles, and if possible, bright glazes. The quality of the reflective color of the enamel will create the illusion of depth, while the color of the light opens the room. Look for bright tiles with ceramic texture, handmade ceramic tiles that have a slightly wavy or wavy surface, or matte tiles in light cream, white and dark gray tones. Avoid the use of smooth tiles on the floor; this makes the surface slippery.
