Size, shape and proportions
The best size and shape of tiles for your bathroom depends on the overall layout and size of your room. If you’re styling a small bathroom, for instance, bigger tiles usually help to make the space feel larger and more open.
As with any design tip, there’s no hard and fast rule regarding this. Instead, look at each of the surfaces that need tiling and determine where focus should be placed and avoided.
Use tiles that draw attention (either by size, shape, texture etc.) to those focus areas of the room: all other tiles should complement these focal points.
Tile colour and finish
If there’s one thing that will make your bathroom look dated faster than anything, it’s the colour and finish of your tiles (hello brown and orange tiles!!).
While a striking design or colour may appeal to your in the immediate future, think about whether this is a passing trend in the interior design industry and whether or not you will still love this in 5 – 10 years time.
If in doubt, splash out on accessories like brightly coloured towels that can be a more temporary and cost-effective trend.
