Bathroom tiling is an important part of the decor and design of the space. The right tiles can be used to make a small bathroom feel larger, or to add drama and character to the room. Tiling features can also be used to create a focal point in the room, and make a bold statement. Using border tiles in the bathroom is one of the effective ways to create a stunning visual feature in your bathroom. These can be horizontal, stretching around the room, or they can be vertical, from floor to ceiling at regular intervals. Vertical border tiles are an understated but stunning option. That’s why, here at Tiles 2 Go, we have produced this guide to the key considerations for vertical border tiles in the bathroom.
Considerations for vertical border tiles in the bathroom
So, if you are thinking of using vertical border tiles, what should you bear in mind? Well, there are a couple of things to decide on, including:
- Texture- border tiles work so well because they create a pocket of contrast with the surrounding tiles. A change in texture is one way to create this contrast. Why not choose textured tiles for your vertical border tiles, to contrast with smooth or glossy tiles in the rest of the space?
- Colour- border tiles can also create contrast with the surrounding tiles by being a different colour. Choose a colour that combines well with your colour scheme, for a subtle feature, or a bold contrasting colour to really grab attention.
- Spacing- the space between the vertical lines of tiles is what will be individual to your own requirements and space. While some people opt for a large amount of space, others can use smaller spacing to create an attractive effect.
