Tile is one of the best materials for bathrooms in the greater Concord, CA area thanks to its durability, resistance to water, and beautiful design appeal. However, if you have a small bathroom, it can be a challenge to find the right tile design that doesn’t feel cramped or overwhelm the senses. Luckily, our team of flooring experts at Floor Coverings International Concord is here to help! Read on as we share a few tile style tips for small bathrooms.
When it comes to small bathrooms, large format tiles have a lot to offer. Not only will they keep costs down, but the larger tiles will also help create a larger sense of space. The smaller the tile you choose, the more grout lines there will be, which can often make a room feel smaller and boxed in. You can also find large format tiles in a variety of ceramic, porcelain, and natural stone materials, such as granite or marble.
Bright Is Better
Don’t get us wrong, we love tile for the range of design possibilities it provides. From dark slate to multi-colored granite to white porcelain, there’s a tile design for any space. However, for small spaces, not only bathrooms, lighter colors will help create a roomier feel. Make sure your space has adequate lighting and avoid lighting that creates shadows in corners.
Just as we recommend lighter tile colors, we also suggest reducing the amount of contrast and accents in smaller bathrooms. If your tile doesn’t go from floor to ceiling, choose tile and paint colors of the same tone to reduce the appearance of transitions between materials. If you’re remodeling, consider using the same tile for your bathroom floor and shower floor to maintain a sense of continuity. Just be sure the tile doesn’t have a polished or glossy finish to avoid slipping.
Consider Floor-To-Ceiling Tile
In the same vein as reducing contrast, tiling your walls goes a long way in increasing the sense of space in your bathroom. Tiles with a shiny surface, such as polished porcelain or glass tile help reflect light and add depth to your design. While cleaning walls might not be for everyone, a tile finish will also outlast paint or wallpaper.
