How to Use Tiling Cleverly in Bathroom Designs

How to Use Tiling Cleverly in Bathroom DesignsTiles are probably the most popular material for both floors and walls in bathroom designs in Melbourne. Tiles are available in a huge range of different colours, textures and styles, making your opportunities for clever bathroom designs almost endless. We have collected a few tips and tricks for using tile creatively in your space to create a unique effect.
  • Explore Materials
The tiles used in bathroom designs don't have to be limited to just glaze porcelain and ceramic. Natural stone and metal also works well and gives a more exotic touch to the space. Brushed metals look beautifully romantic in any room, whereas natural stone adds comfort and practicality.
  • Optical Illusions
By using tiles of different shapes and sizes, you can play creatively with the dimensions and appearance of your bathroom design. You can use long narrow tiles, for instance, to give an illusion of height or length, or light reflective tiles to make your room feel more spacious.
  • Salvage Tiles
Using salvaged materials in building and renovations is both an environmentally conscious and budget friendly measure. You can simply salvage the tiles from your existing space or go to a second hand dealer to find some unique materials to enhance your renovation.
  • Easy Cleaning
While tiles are undoubtedly easy to clean, the easily stained grout used to set them in the floor or wall is quite another story. To make cleaning your bathroom design much easier, you could try to minimise the amount of grout by using larger tiles, or simply use a dark gray or brown grout that hides staining.
