If budget isn’t a factor, then all-over tile can be an interesting way to merge durability and easy cleaning with style. Vary the color, shape, pattern, size and texture of tiles by using different materials on the floors, on the walls and in the shower. Using all-over tile is a good way to make a small space brighter, as the tile will reflect light.
Tile flooring is common in bathrooms and offers a nice alternative to hardwoods, which can get warped if they are exposed to too much water. If you decide to put ceramic tile on the floor, look for a grade of 1 or 2, a water-absorption rating of less than 7 percent and a coefficient of friction above .60, which are slip-resistant and can stand up to water. Also pay attention to porosity; you’ll want a more impervious tile for the floor because of exposure to water. Vinyl feels better on bare feet than ceramic tile, and it’s one of the more popular flooring choices as it’s inexpensive and practical (safe, easy to install and maintain).
For the ultimate memorable shower, consider the use of alternative materials. Teak wood flooring tiles, corrugated aluminum walls or colored (instead of clear) glass doors make for some unique shower ideas. Many homeowners are looking for contemporary shower ideas to create their dream bathroom. Regardless of what inspiration you take, remember to choose the best-quality materials you can afford, and keep your bathroom simple, uncluttered and low-maintenance.
All homeowners look for bright, open spaces. The brighter your bathroom, the larger it looks. And if you’re investing time and money into upgrading your bathroom, don’t let your design choices go unnoticed in a dark, shadowy room — lighting will showcase your bathroom remodel investment beautifully. Three ways to create a brighter bathroom : Add windows and skylights, Use lighting for different purposes throughout the bathroom, Choose finishes and surfaces that are reflective and light.
