Bathroom Ceramic Tile Design
Ceramic tile is the most popular of tiles chosen when remodeling or designing bathrooms. Because it is easy to clean, durable against water and large amounts of moisture, and comes in many shapes, sizes, and colors, ceramic tile is the most cost-efficient way to go. Also, to prevent having to replace or repair areas around or within your bathroom such as your bathtub, it is very wise to choose a tile that can handle large amounts of water.
Another exciting thing about ceramic tile is that it can be used to re-create certain time periods. If you are looking for an antique or Victorian look, you could go with tile that has glaze that is slightly cracked all over. This cracked glazing can offer an older look and certain tiles you find with this may even date back to the 1800s! Tiles that are similar to those from the 1950s can be found, as well. Tile is similar to blocks and bricks that have been around for hundreds of years and are recycled to create historical value or antique feels.
Remember, choosing tile is all based on preference. In this day and age, ceramic tile is offered in just about any design you can dream. The amounts of choices offered for wall tiles and floor tiles are extremely extensive. Decide on the look and feel you want for your bathroom tile design and it is doubtful you will have much trouble finding just what you want.
You can also get hands on and cut your tile to the sizes and shapes you desire. If you want a truly custom made bathroom tile design, access to a wet diamond saw is your ticket in. This offers you the opportunity to cut tiles in varying geometric shapes and styles in order to design your very own patterns or jigsaw puzzle if you like. And down to basics, you can save yourself money by cutting tiles as you want them instead of buying large amounts of tile in varying shapes, considering you may not use all that you buy.
Ceramic tile also offers an easy “canvas” from which to paint your own designs on. You can use stencils or paint different tiles certain colors to add another unique feel to your design. Get hands on with your remodeling or designing! This ensures you get exactly what you’ve hoped for in your tile design ideas.
