Considerations for wet room floor tiling

Sued Ivory room

When it comes to tiling your wet room, you will probably want to choose tiles that really reflect the style of the space you are creating. Neutral and natural effect tiles are often a popular choice for both contemporary and traditional spaces, while bold colours are better suited to contemporary design, and traditional wetrooms can use more traditional patterned tiles. But beyond the style of the room, your wetroom also needs to be an incredibly practical space. But what does this mean for your choice of floor tile? Well, here at Tiles 2 Go, we are Preston’s leading tiling professionals. And this is our guide to the top considerations for wet room floor tiling.

Considerations for wet room floor tiling

So, what are the practical considerations that should be top of your list when choosing wetroom floor tiles? Well, there are several things to bear in mind, including:

  • Durability- your wetroom tiling needs to be durable. Any chips of cracks can be a serious health and safety issue, especially as your feet will often be bare in this space, and vulnerable to any sharp edges. For this reason, you should seriously consider porcelain floor tiles. Porcelain is a lot more hard wearing and durable than ceramic, and so your tiles will be able to withstand more footfall, and more use, without cracking or chipping.
  • Non slip- you might also consider the non-slip aspect of the wet room floor tiles. As the wet room does not have a shower enclosure, water is likely to splash across the whole room. This can mean that slips, trips and falls are a risk. Using textured tiles, and larger grout lines can be a good way to make sure the floor creates more friction, and is non-slip.
