5 Bathroom Tile Tips for Small Spaces

Posted On March 27th, 2017

Choosing the best tile for a specific area in your home is more difficult than you expect. And when it comes to choosing a Bathroom Tile, it can be even more difficult due to the smaller size of the room. It is important to adhere to a few basic rules, which if not followed can make even the most beautiful contemporary tiles look cramped and out of place.

Fortunately, Protiling Melbourne has gathered the following bathroom tile tips that can help you prevent these issues:

3 Rules: Diagonal, Lighter and Larger

The main focus in choosing the right bathroom floor tiles should be on making the room look bigger even if it is not. Following these rules will create the appearance of additional space.

1. Diagonal: Going diagonal will always make the room look larger whether choosing decorative shower tile or bathroom wall tiles. It tricks your eyes into seeing a large space where there is none.
2. Lighter: Choosing lighter colors from stone to ceramic tile also gives off the appearance of a larger room. That is why you see most bathrooms are usually white, but other light colors work as well. Similarly, if you paint the walls and ceiling with a lighter color, the size effect is multiplied.
3. Larger size: Opting for larger tiles can make tiny spaces seem bigger too. This works really well if you combine large tiles with a diagonal layout.

Keep Bathroom Tile Color Consistent

Light colors can make a room look larger but if you opt for non-consistent colors, it can make the room look smaller. Having white wall tiles on one side of the bathroom and darker tile on the other can chop up space, making the abrupt borders obvious. Therefore opt for similar color schemes to make these boundaries less noticeable.

Extend Shower Tiles to the Ceiling

Extending the shower tiles to the ceiling goes the extra mile by presenting the bath on a grand scale. Extending shower tiles completely up the wall will create fewer transitions and less contrast similar to the case in keeping color consistent with bathroom floor tiles.

Utilise Glass Tile in Your Shower

Many people install large format tile or choose beautifully colored decorative tile. On the other hand, utilising glass tile in the shower works more magic. Glass, just like a mirror, reflects light better than other types of bathroom wall tile creating the illusion of extra space in any room.

Porcelain Tile for Your Bathroom

Opting for Porcelain Tile is certainly the way to go when a homeowner is aiming for the lofty feeling in their bathroom. Porcelain tile is available in a seemingly endless variety of colors and textures. Porcelain is also low-maintenance even if it doesn’t add to the spaciousness and has a low water absorption rate.
