For Replacing Bathroom Shower Tile
Nothing spruces up a bathroom better than replacing worn
bathroom shower tile. While this is not a simple project it can
be done successfully by the average homeowner and gives a great
sense of pride when accomplished. Here are a few tips to make
selecting bathroom shower tiles easier and make sure you are
happy with the final product:
Consider the size of your room: If you are lucky enough to
have an enormous bathroom you can choose just about any color
and it will look great. Smaller and average sized bathrooms do
much better with light colors so that they look bigger and
brighter. For truly huge bathrooms, however, the counter is
true and incorporating medium to darker colors can keep the
space from becoming overwhelmingly bright and feeling like a
community shower stall.
Don't clash: Keep the color scheme of your entire bathroom
in mind and make sure the tiles you select for your shower
stall compliment, or match the existing color in the room. That
does not mean you have to go with the same color all around,
you can select tiles that contrast but still blend with the
existing colors. This technique works best in larger bathrooms.
For smaller rooms where you might want a splash of contrast to
add interest incorporate contrasting colored tiles amongst
tiles of the same color as the room to provide a pleasing
pattern that gives the room an added touch of
Big or little: There are a wide variety of sizes to choose
from in bathroom shower tile. The usual range is between 4
inches and 12 inches. Large tiles look good in big spaces but
the average bathroom usually looks best with smaller tiles
because it gives the illusion of added space.
Don't forget the little things: You spend a lot of time
deciding on the color of your tiles and how you will arrange
them if you create patterns don't leave out the final touch.
Pick a grout color that compliments your choice of tiles so
that it all comes together nicely as a finished wall.
Take your time and don't rush your project. Tiling takes
some practice to become skilled at the process but you will
quickly get the hang of it and have a beautiful new shower
stall to be proud of in the end.
