Aim For Tiles With Shared Dimensions. Even if you’re not a perfectionist, little things like grout lines that don’t match up can drive you crazy, and might actually make it more difficult for someone to install your tile. If you’re selecting a few different tile sizes, try and make sure that they’re multiples of each other—perhaps a 12 inch-by-12 inch floor tile, with a four inch-by-four inch wall tile and a one inch-by-one inch border tile. That way, all of the tiles will line up neatly, and you can rest peacefully knowing that everything is aligned.
‘Wall tiles are an ideal way of introducing a welcome splash of colour and pattern to bathrooms,’ says Caroline Gow from Fired Earth. ‘Even a simple splashback can be enough to brighten up a bathroom or give a scheme a bit of an update without breaking the bank. Blues, greens and zesty citrus shades look particularly clean and fresh with white.’ Graphic, hexagonal prints are modern and striking for a high-end, architectural vibe, while wood-effect tiles look bang on trend laid in crisp, chevron patterns and distressed timber finishes. ‘Porcelain, wood-effect tiles are a great way of getting the look and feel of natural timber but are considerably more practical,’ explains Leanne Robey, designer at Ripples. ‘I use them to fill a wet room floor and even run them up the walls in showers because they’re great with water.’ Your choice of wall tile can make all the difference in a compact bathroom and with less vertical space to fill you might be able to splash out on more expensive glass and marbles that would’ve been beyond budget in a larger room.
