How to Choose the Right Tile for Your Small Bathroom


Small Bathroom

Bathrooms come in all different sizes and shapes. Depending on the size and dimensions of your bathroom, it may be difficult to know how to decorate it. You may question whether you should put wall paper in the bathroom, or just paint. Whether you should lay linoleum or add tile flooring. Tile can add a lot of dimension to a small bathroom. There are other positives for tiling a small bathroom.

Tile flooring can be a great way to not only beautify your bathroom, but it can also add value to your home. Putting the right tile in a small bathroom matters even more so than a large bathroom. In a small bathroom, the wrong tile can diminish square footage, as well as be an eyesore. Tips for choosing the right tile for your small bathroom are:

- Choose light and bright colors - Light colors will help open up the room. You don’t want to feel boxed-in every time you go to the bathroom, so give your small bathroom some space by choosing light, bright colored tile - even if it’s imaginary. 

- Set the tiles diagonal - Setting tiles diagonal can give the illusion there is more square footage than there really is. It plays a trick on your eyes. So grow your small bathroom into a bigger space by tiling at an angle.

- Fewer grout lines - When you use small tiles, you will have a lot more grout to lay. Bigger tiles require less grout; and therefore, will help to keep the floor simple and the room, less boxed-in.

If you have a small bathroom, try giving it a makeover by changing your linoleum or large tile squares to a smaller, more decorative tile. Be sure to choose a grout that matches, and isn’t too dark either. Dark grout can close-in or box the room in as much as the wrong tile, itself.
