When renovating your bathroom there are many things you need to take into consideration,it is an expensive exercise here are a few points to consider:

  • Manufacturers from around the world have been able to create bathroom tiles that emulate the tone, texture and size of concrete,      marble and timber look-alike these are finishes presently in trend.

  • Polished concrete flooring has also developed a strong trend following. This impression can be emulated in tile to re-create the lookalike without the COST OR the maintenance.

  • Tiles on the market can come as large as 1.5 x 3mtrs a larger tile makes the space look BIGGER.  However, keep in mind your tiler may charge you an additional FEE for laying larger tiles.

  • By utilizing linear drains in the shower this can create a modern look, streamline and avoid the need of creating multiple cuts.

  • Using 600 x 600 tiles will make the area look larger use a grout close to the tile colour to give a seamless look. Porcelain tiles should only be a 1.5 grout line ie the minimum amount of grout. Speak to your tiler for advice.

  • Use a grout cure in the grout to minimize staining speak to your tiler for advice.

  • Avoid tiles that are trendy at the time so you get a neutral pallet that will stand the test of time, especially for resale value. Think classic colours such as whites, greys, soft taupe and charcoal.

  • Choose to contrast or complement feature walls can be a feature and a bold colour IT can be used to draw attention to an area. Ensure it is not too busy or too dark this will close the area in and make the bathroom look smaller.

  • Whether your style is contemporary, classic, retro or industrial keep it simple and a classic look that will not date easily.  Black and white is always a winner.
