Tile is one of the most important elements of a bathroom remodeling project. Unlike paint, tile lasts much longer and doesn’t degrade even with constant exposure to moisture. The sky’s the limit when it comes to how you design a beautiful bathroom. Northside Construction Services shares some great ideas to get you started.
Ombré refers to a design technique which shades several colors or tones into each other, and is probably more popular as a hairstyling term than a home improvement one. In regard to the latter, there are many creative ways you and a capable remodeling contractor can create a stunning look using this method. Choose three or more colors and create a gentle transition by overlapping the colors, or have it scattered for a mosaic effect, which is best achieved by using small tiles. It may take a lot of planning and work, but the results will be worth it.
Choosing complementary stripe colors and arranging them in an attractive pattern is an effective way of breaking up an otherwise monotonous color palette. It can also be used to visually define areas of the bathroom, in addition to (or instead of) floor elevation changes. Striped tiles also add depth and contrast that’s perfect for small bathrooms, and can be used to cover up a recent bathroom home repair if you have trouble finding tiles that match the original.
Marble is a bathroom flooring material that’s surprisingly flexible design-wise. This is because marble can be cut and used in the same manner as wood floor tiles, which provides a wide selection of styles and patterns to choose from for your bathroom floor.
When it comes to tiles, you don’t have to limit yourself to the usual square shape. Bathroom tiles come in all shapes and sizes, and using shapes such as scallops and honeycombs can expand the design choices you have in your bathroom. For example, scalloped and textured tiles can be used to create a marine-themed bathroom, while large hexagonal tiles will provide an interesting visual texture that’s entirely different from their square counterparts. A capable remodeling contractor can even custom-cut random shapes out of tiles for a personalized look.
