Powder rooms bathrooms spas -- tile’s waterproof, easily cleanable, mildew and germ resistant properties. All of the surfaces in these environments -- floors, walls, tub and shower enclosures, ceilings-- are exposed to the seeping properties of steam, the ever present assault mildew, bacteria, fungus and viruses, and the varied substances used in personal care. Correctly installed tile can take all of these assaults, and look dazzling at the same time!
The range of tiles available to use in your shower and bath surrounds makes a bathroom fit for royalty. Matching tub surrounds and shower enclosures in a shimmering glass mosaic reflects light throughout the room.
A larger floor area can be of interest with ceramic tile set in a trellis pattern, combining three different sizes. Smaller versions of the floor tile can be used on windowsills and the walls. Tile can summon an aesthetic that is beautiful through neutral and rustic, stone looks. It comes in many sizes and is dramatic and subtle at the same time. Edges can be gently honed and when combined with markings that are stone-like it makes a tile that is ideal for a well-dressed bath. This rustic aspect is most successful when combined with lustrous glass tile. To maximize this, about two thirds of the way up the wall cap the ceramic tile with a border and tile up to the ceiling with the glass mosaics, repeating the color and pattern used in the shower and bath areas.
For a full spa treatment, a striking medallion in the center of the room can coordinate the colors and materials used throughout the space. Rectangular and random shaped inlays, expanding on the patterns and lines used in the room are unbeatable. For a truly custom look, consider a water jet pattern where the limits are your imagination.
