Tiles also come in a variety of sizes, which when pieced together can create quite a unique look. You can choose to tile the entire wall from floor to ceiling with both the same color and type of tile. Another option is to mix it up and have one color of tile on the bottom of the wall and another color towards the top separated by narrow, textured tile pieces that act as a chair rail.
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.
Hand painted ceramic tiles can also be used on the bathroom walls to make it look different and interesting. These tiles are generally available in bright hues and are glazed so that their colors do not easily get washed off. Tile murals are also one of the interesting bathroom tile ideas. Wide variety of these mural tiles is available in the market which includes animal designs, replicas of famous paintings, landscape and many others. So just incorporate these amazing and interesting tile designs to give a new aura and look to your bathroom.
If you like wooden floors, go in for hardwood floors. They look stylish and elegant when combined with accessories like potted plants, mirrors and bathroom rugs. However, they require extensive maintenance. Bamboo flooring is also a good idea. It is cheaper and requires less maintenance though it adds the same natural and cool look to the room.
Bathrooms today are not limited in their tile choices to plain white, square, glazed ceramic tiles as they used to be. Today, there are literally thousands of different styles and sizes of bathroom tile ideas and choices. Ceramic is not the only material, either. Tiles are now readily available in travertine, sandstone, or marble just to name a few.
Some different bathroom floor tiles ideas include tiling your bathroom with tiles made of cork, bamboo or hardwood. Cork flooring gives your bathroom a different texture. They are easy to maintain and stays warm even in winter. If you choose to do the bathroom tile using cork, add some potted plants and use fixtures with a metal finish to give a cool and natural look.
