One popular solution for a bathroom is to create a wet room, which is basically a walk in shower room that is much more comfortable than the enclosed shower types. These can be created to suit virtually any room type as long as a few simple rules are followed. The room will need to be waterproofed (tanked) to provide a seal and water leaking downstairs or next door. The tiles will need to have falls created if they don't already exist in the substrate, to allow the water to drain and the water to not pool in an area.
Another area that you can add some tile work to is the countertop. By adding tile here as well as the walls and floor, you can achieve a room that looks elegant and well put together. Choose tile in complementary colors, but vary the textures and the sizes of the tiles to please the eye and to add different layers.
Floor tile ideas for the kitchen would be the same with those for the bathroom. Kitchen tiles must be easy to clean and slip-free. Stains due to food preparation and cleaning of cooking wares abound in the kitchen. Ceramic tiles are fit for such an atmosphere. With a mop sweep, all the stains could be gone without posing much harm to the kitchen users.
One of the more practical bathroom floor tiles ideas involves using concrete tiles. They are durable, low maintenance and come in different colors and textures. They also give good grip and prevent one from slipping.
One of the most popular bathroom wall tile ideas involves using large, rectangular shaped tiles. Larger tiles mean lesser grout and this makes cleaning easier since dirt tends to accumulate in the group used to fill in the space between tiles. Other bathroom wall tile ideas include using different patterned tiles, scattering colored tiles at random and using dark colored grout.
Not only are there are thousands of different types of tiles, but there are dozens of colors of tile grout. This added versatility means that you could use the same tile on the floor as on the walls, but by changing the color of the grout, you can achieve two completely different effects.
