Tile is a popular flooring choice for bathrooms in the greater Triad area because it’s water-resistant and durable enough to withstand daily foot traffic. However, if your bathroom is small in stature, it can be tough to find the right tile that doesn’t decrease the sense of space and make your bathroom feel small and cramped.
Your local experts at Floor Coverings International Triad are dedicated to providing homeowners in the greater Winston-Salem, Greensboro, High Point, and surrounding area with expert knowledge, a great product selection, and professional flooring installation. Today, we’re here to share some of our top tips for tile flooring in small bathrooms.
Use Caution with Color
Our first tip for your bathroom tile has to do with choosing the right color. In small spaces, it’s important to avoid too many dark colors. If you like the look of dark tile, consider an alternatively bright color for your walls and fixtures. For a clean and modern design, consider a bright tile floor with similarly bright walls and ceiling to help reflect light and increase your sense of space.
Consider Your Grout
Grout is an important feature of your tile floor because it adds durability and defines the shape of each individual tile. However, too much contrast between your tile and grout can create a grid-like look to your bathroom and make it appear smaller and boxed in. Consider choosing a grout color that matches your tile to help reduce contrast and create a seamless look to your floor.
Even if your bathroom might not be the biggest, large format tiles are a great choice for your floors. These tiles are typically wider than 12″ in a given dimension and their larger size helps reduce grout lines and increase the appearance of your bathroom’s size. Although you might not be able to be as creative with your tile pattern, as you would with a tile mosaic, large tiles can help reduce the cost of materials and installation time.
Use Your Wall Space
Tile is not only a great floor covering but also a functional wall covering for your small bathroom. Tiling your bathroom walls will help draw your eyes around the room, as well as provide functional protection against moisture. For added depth and visual intrigue, consider a neutral glass tile for your walls that will help reflect light around your bathroom.
