After the kitchen, the master bathroom is the second-most popular room in the house to be remodeled. In fact, 14.2 million bathrooms are remodeled every year. One of the most important features of a bathroom remodel is the tile, as bathroom tile helps to protect the floor, vanity, and shower walls from potential water damage.
But with so many colors, types, and sizes of bathroom tile available, it can be challenging to figure out which style is right for you. To help you choose a flooring option you’ll love, here are a few ways you can narrow down the types of tiles to find the one best suited to your master bathroom.
- Color. White is currently the most popular tile color when it comes to bathrooms. This is especially true for small bathrooms because lighter colors help to make the room feel larger and brighter. However, darker colors such as navy and emerald green have been growing increasingly popular in modern bathroom renovation trends. Pops of color with vibrant tiles are typically kept to smaller surfaces to avoid oversaturating the space with color, but ultimately your choice of tile color is completely up to you.
- Size. Tile size plays a major role in the appearance of your bathroom. Smaller tiles, such as penny tiles, can look cute in smaller bathrooms (especially as a vanity backsplash), but are best left out of larger master bathrooms because of the number of grout lines. Larger tiles can make a small bathroom look smaller, but work well in large-scale bathrooms where you can display the tile’s textures.
- Materials. Ceramic is the most common bathroom tile option because it’s affordable, comes in a wide array of colors, and it’s easy to maintain. But ceramic isn’t the only material when it comes to tiles. Porcelain is denser than ceramic and is just as durable with additional slip resistance. Natural stone is a great option for larger bathrooms where you can use large tiles to display their beautiful colors.
