BathroomBathroom Tiles and Flooring Basics
A somewhat costly upgrade of your bathroom includes updating or replacing the flooring in place. Most bathrooms have inexpensive tiles that were in place when the home or apartment was purchased. Chances are you don't need to redo the flooring unless you are planning major renovation.
How flooring can enhance the style of contemporary bathroom
As with other aspects of bathroom decor, the tile you choose can make a major difference in the appearance and feel of you bathroom. For example, if you are going for a more contemporary look, tiles with simple and minimalistic geometric shapes can go along way in enhancing the modern look of your vanity lights or mirrors. The key thing to remember is that to avoid tiles or flooring with that are too decorative or otherwise have too much going on as far as design. Nonetheless, you should consider using more lively colors so that the room doesn't appear too sterile of impersonal. Shades of neutral blue, green, and even earth-tones can greatly enhance the feel of contemporary bathroom.
Using Borders and patterns to accent design
You can create borders around tiles by using smaller tile pieces of a difference color. This generally works well with ceramic tiles. For example, you may want to use earth-tone color tiles as borders to give the room a warmer feel. Another idea that works well if you do not use borders is to use patterns and sizes to create some variance in the appearance. You may want to consider smaller tiles of the same color in the shower, or line the tiles in the bathroom to create linear shapes.
