Winter is a great time to do indoor renovation projects, like renovating your bathroom. Tile is a great option for bathroom floors, because of its durability and ability to stand up to water. But maybe you haven’t considered using tile for other uses in your bathroom!
Here are many ways you can use tile in your Guelph bathroom.
This is the obvious way to use tile in your bathroom. Lots of homeowners choose tile for their bathroom renovations because it is strong, durable and water-resistant. There are also lots of options out there for tile flooring that is less slippery and specially made for surfaces that are often wet.
Tile is a great step up from laminate, which we see used for a lot of bathroom and kitchen countertops. They add a bit more style than a laminate countertop, and they’re more durable. Tile countertops come in a wide range of materials, from glass to ceramic and porcelain, so there are lots of options to choose from.
• Shower stall
If you have a free-standing shower in your home, chances are that it’s lined with tile! Because tile is so good at repelling water, it’s a no-brainer that you’d use it for the wettest part of your house. And it’s easy to clean, which is a huge plus when it comes to showers!
If you’re renovating your bathroom and are installing a free-standing shower, why not continue the tile wall into the rest of the bathroom? You won’t have to worry about water splashing and potentially damaging your painted walls. Plus, tile walls can be really striking and add so much more style to a bathroom!
• Sink backsplash
If you don’t want to go quite as bold as tiling all of your bathroom walls, consider at least installing a tiled backsplash behind your sink. Your sink gets a ton of use and water marks on your wall are so unsightly. Backsplashes are not only useful, but they are so stylish and there are tons of options for colours and shapes!
Some bathtubs have tiles on the sides, which you can use to tie the bathtub to the rest of the bathroom. You can use the same tile as your floor or walls, or try something different while sticking with complementary colours.
When it comes to designing the bathroom of your dreams for your Guelph home, the choices are endless. Use tile throughout the space can add a true sense of luxury that will make you feel like you’re at a spa!
