We usually use tile in our bathrooms for its capacity to function as a waterproof barrier against the water and the steam that's present here.
Tiles come in so many sizes, shapes, styles, and materials that enable you to obtain endless design possibilities. Thought, small bathrooms require certain rules when it comes to choosing the right tile.
Here are the best pieces of advice for a small bathroom to look great with tiles:
Tile placed on a diagonal adds vibrancy to any small bath and gives the illusion of a larger room. That's because diagonally laid tile adds a kind of controlled chaotic nature that lends spark and vibrancy to small baths.
Light colors such as white, gray, beige make any room feel more spacious. Another trick is to use glossy tiles, which will enhance the space by reflecting light, that will also give a sense of grander proportions.
But this does not mean you should aim for exclusively white flooring tiles; this only means that you should go for a generally light shade. Even a black-and-white floor tile scheme is 50% white.
Mix small tiles with larger pieces. They will make the bathroom feel less cramped, although if you only choose large tiles they will proportionally overwhelm the bathroom.
If there’s little wall space between shower and the toilet, for example, then small pieces of tile will create a better flow than larger options.
