Choosing a tile for a bathroom renovation can be a tough task with so many options available on the market today. However, we want to make this process easy for our customers. Here are 5 tips to help you pick out the perfect tile for your Ottawa bathroom renovation:
The first place to start is choosing a colour palette for your bathroom. There are 3 important things to keep in mind when picking a colour palette: the size of your space, your design style and the type of fixtures used in your bathroom. The rule of thumb is to use more neutral tones in a smaller space, but there are definitely some daring bathrooms we’ve seen use dark colours.
There are a variety of tile materials to choose from and they all have their pros and cons. Materials like ceramic or porcelain can be a good choice for counters and floors. Ceramic is less expensive than porcelain and is easy to clean and great for damp bathrooms. Glass tile is great to be used on a wall or as a backsplash.
Using bold patterns can really spice up a room, however patterned tile can get very pricey. Therefore, sticking to one bold statement tile can keep your budget down, but also add the look you’re going for.
The size of your tile is dependent on the amount of grout you want to have in your bathroom. If you would like less grout to be shown picking a larger tile would be a great pick, whereas smaller tile would show more grout lines.
Sticking with 3 or 4 tile choices that fit your design and colour palette is a good idea, as you do not want to many different tile designs overpowering your space. This would mean picking one tile for the shower, one for the flooring and one for the backsplash.
