Tips for Choosing the Right Tile for a Small Bathroom

From top to bottom, it’s important to consider every detail of a bathroom remodeling project carefully before beginning. The size, design, and color of tiles can impact how large the room seems. Here’s how to choose the right tile for a small bathroom.

Measure Carefully

Before even deciding what style of bathroom tile to use, homeowners should measure their bathroom carefully—then measure again. This is particularly important for small bathrooms, as they may have awkward layouts, with the sink, toilet, and bathtub taking up floor space.

Expand the Space With Mosaic Tiles

Reminiscent of a professional spa, mosaic tiles can make a small bathroom appear larger due to their small size and multicolored surfaces. Glass mosaic tiles can be an even better choice since they reflect light, making the room appear wider, deeper, and larger.

… But Don’t Overcomplicate

With that said, opting for mosaic, stone, or colorful tile can make the bathroom appear too busy. While a splash of color can be great for an otherwise-monochromatic space, it may overcomplicate a highly decorated bathroom. If other features of the bathroom are already colorful or patterned, simple tiles may be a better option.

Set the Tiles Diagonally

Whatever the tile size or pattern, placing them at a diagonal angle can create an optical illusion: the diagonal layout can visually extend the room’s length and width at the same time. Because a diagonal installation may be more complicated, it’s best to have this performed by a professional remodeling service.

Just because a bathroom is small doesn’t mean it can’t be one of the best rooms in a home. If you’re interested in re-tiling your bathroom, call Savannah Surfaces at 843-784-6060 today.
