Whats the Most Overlooked Part of Your Bathroom

Aug 4, 2008
Your new home will never be entirely comfortable until you can proudly claim that it is well furnished. Who would want a luxurious house without a family room or bathroom that matches its elegance? Fans of interior design and housekeeping magazines can relate to the importance attached to a well furnished home. At this point, I want to make it clear that you don't need to spend a fortune on a bathroom, but you will need to focus your mind on planning one and select carefully from the mind boggling variety of accessories.

While most people will spend lots of money on faucets, vanities and bathtubs, they often overlook one of the areas that speaks volumes and can completely change the decor of your bathroom.

One of the most vital parts of a luxurious bathroom is bathroom shower tile, however, we seldom realize its significance. Bathroom shower tile probably takes up the most surface area of your bathroom, which makes it a major criterion for determining the look and atmosphere of your bathroom.

There are a variety of shower tiles available at most hardware stores. That is a positive thing as it provides you with options to select from. This ensures that you can purchase a bathroom shower tile that suits your own taste. The drawback is that too many choices can also be overwhelming. To make shopping more straightforward, it is a good idea to jot your ideas down on paper before you actually browse in a hardware store to look at shower tile.

Bathroom tiles made of ceramics can last many decades and retain their luster for quite a few years. So, ceramic tiles are definitely a smart choice for your bathroom. As well, these tiles are much more affordable than granite or marble tiles.

It is important to recognize that the size of the bathroom tile affects the look of your room. If the tile is too small, it will mar the beauty. However, large tiles are noticeably more expensive and the expense of their replacement is also that much more. Your choice of tile size will depend in part on what you can afford and what is available in the colors you want.

It is also very important to hire the services of a professional mason for installing bathroom shower tiles. These tiles usually should not be laid completely flat. Tiles that act as tub surround or tiles that are located in corners need to be placed at a gradient to ensure that water is able to run-off into the drain. The gradient is best done by a mason. Unless you are experienced at installing ceramic tile, it's usually ideal to hire a professional, otherwise your bathroom renovating could end up to be more expensive that you had anticipated.

So, ask yourself, what do your shower tiles say about you? Do they convey the right message to your house guests? Its been said that its the bathroom decor that sets the tone for the rest of the house. Whats the tone in your home?
