Bathroom tile ideas

There are two main options when considering bathroom tiles: fully tiled or half tiled walls. Fully tiled walls are great for contemporary rooms. Neutral coloured tiles can be complemented with mosaic or glass borders to make your space more personal. Why not pick some fluffy towels and chic accessories to match your border? This will create a space to impress your guests.
If you prefer half tiled bathrooms, why not go for boldly coloured tiles? They can create the ultimate bathroom statement. Powerful colours can be balanced with neutral paint shades or, if you feel daring, choose a bright colour for a more intense look. Patterned tiles are a great alternative as you can pick out different colours and match bathroom decorations accordingly; brilliant if you like to regularly re-style your space.

Do it yourself

To keep on top of a tight budget why not try doing the tiling yourself? There are many products available to make bathroom renovation DIY-friendly; tile cutters, adhesive, grout remover and sealant can all be picked up relatively cheaply to create the desired flawless finish.
Why not give dated tiles a lick of tile paint and retrace the grouting with a grouting pen to give them a new lease of life? This option is cheaper than re-tiling and provides a perfect short term solution.
