Tiles save cleaning time and offers a special look for your bathrooms. Choosing the right tiles for the bathroom is a tricky matter. If you select wrong tiles then your bathroom may not look up to your expectations even after spending lots of money on it. In the following, we have discussed some tips for choosing the best tiles for your bathroom. Start by creating a sincere plan. Try to envision your remodeled bathroom. How do you want it to look? Do you want to make niches in the walls for keeping essential bathing items? The tiles of your choice should be able to accommodate your needs. You may hire a professional designer to plan the bathroom décor. One of the main concerns should be the size of the tiles. You may use more than one size of tiles for the bathroom. Think about using differently sized tiles for the different parts of the bathrooms. Along the edges of the walls and curvy shapes, smaller tiles work better. For the place of sitting, you should use bigger slabs of tiles that offer comfort. The tiles are water resistant but not necessarily waterproof. You should consider water proofing the walls before fixing the tiles. The mosaic tiles you choose should be in contact with the board at the back. Experts recommend that you must only use the mosaic tiles that have 95% contact. The glue may not be sufficient for keeping the tiles in touch with the backer board. Using glass tiles in the showering area is not probably the best idea. The glass tiles lock moisture inside it. The trapped moisture shows up behind the tiles and you cannot do anything about it. After using the shower area a couple of times after the renovation, you may find it very unattractive. If you really want to use glass tiles in the bathroom then choose smaller ones. Summary: The tiles you select for the bathroom should be of the proper size. Pick colors carefully so that it matches the entire décor of the bathroom. Light colored tiles work best for the small bathrooms.]]>
