Bathroom floor and wall tiling is a sensible and practical option. And many people simply opt for natural coloured tiles to provide a soothing, calm and relaxing effect in the bathroom. But this can lead to some bathrooms looking visually dull, with no interesting features. Border tiles could be the perfect addition to any bathroom that feels just a little bit bland. But what are border tiles? And how can you use them effectively? Well, here at Tiles 2 Go, we are Preston’s leading tiling experts. As a result, we have produced this guide to bathroom border tiles. So, could your bathroom tiling benefit from border tiles?
Could your bathroom tiling benefit from border tiles?
Bathroom border tiles are tiles that are visually different from the other tiles in the room, and they are applied horizontally around the room in a single or double row. Or they can be just as effectively applied vertically, in a single or double row, at a certain point. This creates a visual feature in the bathroom, and can even make your room feel larger. The border tiles also add depth and character to the room, as you will use a different coloured tile for the border.
How can you use border tiles in the bathroom?
So how can you use border tiles effectively in the bathroom? Well, here are some key suggestions:
- create a texture border- use textured tiles to create the border and your bathroom will appreciate the 3D effect. This is most effective for contemporary bathrooms.
- create a subtle border- use the same tile, in a different shade, to create a subtle border around the room. In some bathrooms, this subtle change can be more dramatic and effective than a brighter, bolder colour.
- go vertical for more interest- use two rows of tiles to create a vertical border a key point in your bathroom. This will become the feature wall, drawing attention with the change in direction, and colour.
