Retiling your bathroom is a great way to give the room a new look. This is a project you can take on yourself and it’s one that can make a statement. The tile you choose will help complete the look and feel of the room, so it’s important that you choose the best fit for your home.

If your project will include altering the piping in your bathroom, remodeling or installing new appliances, contact a Seaford plumber who can make sure the job is done correctly and safely.

But, with all the options out there how do you know which tile to choose? Here are a few tips to keep in mind.

Bring in the Right Colors

There are virtually endless color options when it comes to tile. Bright, subdued, natural, modern or classic; the kind of colors you bring in should complement the rest of the bathroom and your home. You can bring out a few colors that are already in the room or choose colors that will flow with the colors in the bathroom.

In general, bright colors make a room feel happy and cheerful while lighter colors can make it feel bigger and more open. Natural colors will bring a calm feeling or make the room feel classy or luxurious.

Choose the Right Size and Shape

There are almost as many tile shapes available as there are colors. The most important thing to keep in mind when choosing what kind of tile to use is that the size and shape will add contrast, giving your room a professional touch.

Different shapes can also add to the theme. Intricate tiles will make a room feel detailed and luxurious while more simple tiles are great for a calm, modern atmosphere.

Combine Color and Shape

In most cases, you will use a combination of a few different colors and shapes in your bathroom. Creating a pattern, adding a border or just using two different types of tiles in two different spaces will add some variety and detail that adds personality.

The best combinations use elements that tie each kind of tile together. Use a color theme, style or other element to make sure all your tiles work together before you use them in the same bathroom.

Installing new tile in your bathroom is a great way to give it an update and dramatically change the way it looks. Use these tips as you shop for tile to make sure it enhances your room and has a professional vibe.
