How to ensure that your newly tiled bathroom looks perfectTabitha Fox
Whenever we redecorate a bathroom we always want to aim for the perfect finish, after all it’s a big investment of time and money. However, when there are so many options and styles to choose from, it’s very easy to make mistakes.
Here are some tips to help you avoid the usual pitfalls.
By the nature of the fact that your bathroom is one of the most essential rooms in your house, the temptation to rush the job will always be high. We always recommend taking time to plan your project, go and browse displays and really take in the designs and styles that are on offer.
After all, you’re going to have to look at what you choose every morning.
Follow your head, not your heart
Of course, you want to love your new bathroom, but you also need to make sure that it’s practical and functional. Are those lovely sunken lights going to be a nightmare when you need to replace a bulb? How often will you actually use the jacuzzi option in your bath?
Think about how your bathroom will age. Will it end up being the modern version of an avocado coloured toilet?
And with that in mind, also consider how durable the products that you use will be. Choosing hardwearing tiles may not sound like the most exciting option, but in years to come you’ll thank yourself for your practical decision.
Think about your storage
Do you want your loo rolls on display? A bathroom goes beyond being a functional place to wash. It’s also possibly a place that visitors will walk in to. So, think about whether you’ll incorporate cupboards into your new space or maybe a vanity unit under your sink, which also handily covers up pipework.
The finishing touches matter
Adding a few finishing touches can transform a bathroom from mundane to marvellous. Whether it’s some plants and nice storage pots, or a colourful mosaic tile border, the attention to small details is always important.
Choose the right tiles
Make sure that you pick tiles that are perfect for your bathroom use. We always recommend using porcelain tiles for wet spaces. If you’d like to find out why, take a look at our blog.
