Things to keep in mind when tiling your bathroom
Tiling your bathroom in Auckland can be quite an overwhelming task. There are so many options and styles that it can be easy to get confused. People often loose their vision for their bathroom amidst all the options available online or in a catalog.
The reason people often take their time in choosing tiles is because floors and tiles are a big part of a bathroom. They can make a small bathroom look bigger or revamp an old bathroom. Follow our simple guideline in order to change the risky business of choosing the right tiles to a downright fun experience.
The size and shape of your bathroom has to be taken into consideration when choosing tiles for the bathroom. You might like colour black and want your bathroom to look like an elegant powder room out of a bond movie, however if it is a small space then it will end up making your bathroom look even smaller. Use light coloured tiled in small spaces to make your bathroom look bigger and airier. If you do want to add a bit of character then add some colourful tiles in the corners or even the centre of your light coloured tiles.
2. Look of your bathroom
Bathroom tiles can really change the look of your bathroom. Fixtures are only a part of the appeal in a bathroom, the real heroes are in fact the tiles. They can truly revamp your bathroom to suit your taste and style. If you are looking for an elegant touch or are you after a fresh and clean feel? The colour, textures and design of your tiles can unleash great potential for your bathroom.
3) Material of your tiles
Style and mood is all well good, but do not forget the practicality. The kind of material your tiles are made of can change the style of your bathroom. However different materials have different maintenance needs and hence should be taken into account while choosing the tiles for your bathroom.
4) Feature or not to feature
Featuring tiles on a wall or as an outline to the floors is a way to add that wow factor to your bathroom. Whether you want to add a set of feature tiles or not really depends on the kind of style you are going for. If you are planning to sell your home then make sure that your feature tiles are up to date with the current styles. Sometimes when you want to revamp the bathroom but do not want to change your entire floor tiles then you can opt for adding some nice tiles on one side of the wall and make it the focus of your bathroom.
Staying within your budget can prove quite a difficult task when renovating your bathroom. Good quality tiles can be quite expensive depending on the size of your bathroom. Our advice to our clients is to stretch their budget if need be and invest in some good quality tiles. Inferior tiles might fit in your budget initially but they will not last as long as good quality tiles which in turn will cost you more in the long run. Good quality tiles does not always equate to expensive. It is possible to find cheaper tiles if you do your research well. You should definitely try and get as many quotes are possible before deciding on the type of change you want to make.
