Simple ways to tile your bathroom
Tiling your bathroom doesn’t have to be all about features, patterns and layouts. Instead, you can always choose to keep your bathroom simple. This could include:
- using straight lay rectangular or square tiles
- using one row of different coloured tiles to create a border
- using diagonal tiling
Straight lay tiling
As simple as it sounds, straight lay tiling simply involves laying each tile next to the other. With no fancy layout or pattern involved. This can be very effective and understated, although it wont help you draw attention to any special features. It also mean your floor and walls can being to merge together a little bit. To counter this, you could use a slightly different shade for the floor and walls. Just make sure the two colours are complementary.
To liven up your straight lay tiling, you could add a single row of border tiles. Either vertical or horizontal, simply lay one row of tiles in a complementary colour. This will break up your bathroom and add a bit more visual interest.
If straight lay is a little too boring, why not turn your square tiles 45 degrees and tile your room with a diagonal pattern? You can even use a contrasting grout colour to help your tiles stand out.
