Your bathroom is a high humidity room and your bathroom floor and wall tiles need to hold up to all that water. You’ll likely have children in there forgetting to turn off the water in the sink or bathtub, pets that jump out of their bath dripping with water and toilets overflowing. So, your choice of tile in this room is pretty important.
Bathroom Floor and Wall Tiles That Hold Up
A good porcelain or ceramic tile is a great choice in the bathroom for both the bathroom floor and wall tiles. Make sure you use a tile on the floor that is not perfectly smooth, however. You don’t want anyone to slip and fall when they step into a bit of water or they have socks on. For the walls, a smooth surface or a different texture will offset the design of the floor.
Using wooden tiles or flooring isn’t a very good choice for the bathroom, due to the high humidity and water spills. But there are great choices that look a lot like wood. Ceramic tiles come in a wide variety of designs, one being a very realistic wood look.
Cement is another popular look that has become quite popular lately. You don’t have to pour cement and it would not be recommended even if you could. But, there are tiles that are designed to have the look of cement. This is a great choice for floor tiles, especially if you are designing in a more industrial look and feel.
Of course, marble and granite are always wonderful, standard choices. Make sure the tiles you use on the floor are rough to avoid slipping when walking on them.
