The floor in your home has to put up with a lot, especially in a bathroom. With people coming and going and the bathroom in constant use throughout the day it’s important that your bathroom floor is durable and easy to keep clean. Tiles are the perfect option for any space, from a wet room to a family bathroom. Keep reading to see our top picks for floor tiles.
Stone tiles fit perfectly into the natural trend in bathroom design right now. Covering everything from marble and travertine to granite and slate, stone tiles are a classic choice and have been a popular option for generations.
The wonderful quality that stone possesses over a man made surface is its natural beauty and unique variation; no tile will look exactly alike. Stone tiles add depth and interest to a floor and also act as a good heat conductor keeping your bathroom cosy.
If you are looking for a maintenance free floor then porcelain tiles are the perfect choice for you. Porcelain tiles do not need sealing and are notoriously hard to chip or damage so no need to worry if you are naturally clumsy! Nowadays they are being designed to look like other surfaces such as wood, rubber or concrete making porcelain a great option if you want to add some texture to your bathroom.
Ceramic is fired clay which makes for a naturally diverse material. Ceramic tiles can be made in a huge range of colours, shapes, sizes and textures and many are available with unusual glazes. They are so varied making them a perfect choice for almost any bathroom. Ceramic tiles are also typically cheaper than porcelain, as well as being hygienic and easy to clean, perfect if you’re on a budget.
If you are looking to make a statement with your bathroom floor you could use patterned or coloured tiles to inject some personality. Patterned and textured tiles are a huge trend at the moment so why not bring in some extra style to your bathroom with tiles that make the floor the main focus?
A perfect way to avoid a conventional room design is to use pattern and colour on your floor. Glass and ceramic tiles come in a huge range of options from vintage floral to bold bights. Running the tiles up past the skirting and onto the wall or even up and around the bath will make the most of your bold floor.
