guide to tiling a small bathroom

Are there any design problems that may arise, due to the small space? Well, here at Tiles 2 Go, we are Preston’s leading tiling professionals. From kitchens and bathrooms, to hallways and living rooms, we have a range of tiles to suit any home, and any style. As a result, we have produced this guide to tiling a small bathroom.

What are the important considerations for tiling a small bathroom?

When it comes to tiling a small bathroom, or any small space, there are three key considerations. These are the:

  • grouting
  • colour choice
  • tile finish

Grouting considerations for a small space

One of the big things that can influence your tiling choice is grout lines. Smaller tiles in a smaller space mean that you will see a lot more grout lines. If you use a grout colour in a contrasting colour, this can turn into a busy pattern that can make your small bathroom look even smaller. Consequently, we recommend using a complimentary grout colour when tiling your small bathroom. This will blend into the tiles and make the pattern look seamless. As a result, the room will look bigger.

Choosing the right tile colours for a small bathroom

The colours of your tiles can make a huge difference to your bathroom. While different colours have a different impact on a space, you may have your own ideas for a bathroom colour scheme. However, if you are tiling a small bathroom, we at Tiles 2 Go would seriously recommend that you consider a light coloured tile. This doesn’t have to be white or plain, but lighter colours will reflect more light. As a result, they can make your small bathroom feel larger.

Tiling finish options for a small bathroom

Finally, the finish of the tiles can have a big influence on your room. From shiny gloss to dull matte, the finish of your tiles can make a difference, especially when tiling a small bathroom. As tiling experts, we feel that a gloss finish is the better option. This is because glossy tiles have a shiny surface. As a result, they will reflect any natural light in your bathroom, and make the space feel bigger.
