Small Bathroom--Tile Choice and Layout

October 6, 2013
Updating small bathroom and am unsure what floor tile will be best. Currently looking at longer, rectangular tile. Would wider rectangular tile be better for the floors or the more narrow 4 inch tile be better? Is it too much to use the same tile for the wall tile plus accent tile? Not sure what will make the room look bigger and be asthetically pleasing. Would a contrasting floor be better? Decisions!

    I like the floor, how about running it in staggered rows 1/3 off set & alternating between the to sizes. This would be a very cool mod. look!

    I love your floor tile. I would use white gloss tiles for the walls. Your accent tile would be beautiful with white.

    And timber for your vanity. Classy

    Here are a few pictures to help you decide. I like the larger tile for the floor layed offset. Then, the shower tile a tad smaller, layed horizontally. Or the floor offset, and the tub surround straight tile.

    I would use the larger tile, offset, on the floor similar to

    unless you are planning on removing the tub and doing something similar to this

    and then use that gorgeous accent tile only in the tub area. http://media.hgtv.ca/daylife/02JK1Sxh055eR_940x640.jpg

    The wider tile, offset/staggered lay. It will look fab!

    Tile installed diagonally would make the small floor space appear larger.

    You picked out some great pieces. Wider rectangle one is my vote. What if you went with a solid shower curtain. Good Luck
