How To Choose The Right Bathroom Tile For Your Remodeling Project

By Nancy Evans

Many homeowners are looking for a way to make the most of their remodeling budgets. One way to do this is to change the appearance of a bathroom. These small rooms can often make or break the sale of a house. Adding a new bathroom tile to the walls or floor of your room can give it a fresh new appearance that buyers love. Here are some tips that you can use to choose the right product for your needs.

There are many reasons why so many individuals in San Francisco, CA are installing these items in their homes. The first is that they can be relatively inexpensive. Another reason is that they hold up to moisture and to heavy foot traffic while resisting damage quite well. You may be looking for materials that are easy to clean and if that is the case, tiles will also be a great choice.

If you consider a few basic factors it can really help you wade through the large number of items and help you find the one that works best for your house. If you think about how much stress and wear your tiles will need to withstand, what size you need and even what color you want in your washroom. All of these things will help you narrow down your choices and find tiling that will work for your home.

When you start shopping you may be surprised to find that these items will often look larger or smaller and some may not look like a good fit for your home. You may want to use larger versions on your floor and a coordinating option on walls, counters or back splashes. These are often scaled down so that they can fit into a smaller space.

You also need to think about how durable you need your final choice to be. If you have small children or pets you will likely want to make sure that the product you choose is able to handle the occasional dropped object. Some models are only colored on the top surface. If a hard object is dropped on them they will end up showing white chips in the surface.

Smaller rooms may do better with a monotone look. Subway or rectangular shapes can make a smaller room look larger as well. If you want to find a way to include some visual interest you may want to consider adding accent panels or other decorative elements in order to direct your gaze in a particular direction.

Finding these items is much easier than deciding which style will look best in your home. If you can, it can be helpful for you to bring samples home so that you can view them in your bathroom. You may be surprised at how different they look when you see them in your washroom's lighting conditions and get an idea as to whether the size will work with the dimensions of your room.

One you have selected your tiling materials it is time to think about who is putting them up in your home. Some simple designs can be put in on your own but if you want something more complicated it can be a good idea to hire a professional installer.
