Tile is the most commonly used and popular flooring material for a bathroom, and there’s an extremely good reason for that.
Tiles are easy to clean and care for, and most don’t absorb water.
Tile lasts for a very long time, so if you decide to go with tile flooring, it’s likely that it is going to last until the next time you choose to redo your bathroom.
Tiles are also not just for floors; they can liven up your walls or shower as well!
Different types of tiles have different qualities and use, so it’s important to pick the right materials when tiling each different part of your bathroom.
Marble tiles are made for luxury and provide a classic and elegant look to any bathroom.
Marble is a natural rock that comes in various shades, so there’s no doubt that there is a shade to perfectly match its surroundings.
Travertine is a type of limestone. It is also incredibly porous, so it may be best used as a wall tile as opposed to a floor or shower tile.
However, if it is sealed properly, it can make for a solid floor with an earthy look.
Ceramic tiles are the most popular tiles for bathroom floor and wall use.
Instead of being cut from pieces of existing rock or material, these tiles are typically made from clay and fired into their final form.
Ceramic tiles tend to be priced competitively, which works out in the best interest of the buyer. They are also easy to care for and can come in an astounding variety of patterns, colors, sizes, and shapes.
Since they can be made in such a large variety of shapes, there are endless amounts of patterns that they can be laid in.
They can be large enough to be feature pieces or small enough to be accents of color or pattern in a room.
All these factors are what make ceramic tiles one of the most versatile options on the tile market.
Porcelain tiles are similar to ceramic tiles, but because of the way they are manufactured, they tend to be a little more expensive. They are the most durable option of what we offer, and best resists the absorption of water.
They tend to look a lot like natural stone tiles, so with porcelain, you get the appearance of a harder to maintain material without the hassle of heavy maintenance.
Glass tiles are mainly meant to be used on walls or around borders since they are made to be highly decorative.
Even though glass doesn’t absorb any water, it is not intended for use as a floor tile in such a frequently used room as the bathroom.
Concrete tiles are highly resistant to water. They are strong, durable, and easy to work with.
Since concrete is so easy to work with during the process of creating tiles, it can be formed into an especially wide variety of textures and shapes to suit every need.
