Remodeling a bathroom is an exciting venture, but it can also be a daunting one. There are so many choices to make in terms of layout, style, fixtures, shower heads, and faucets. But one of the most important decisions, and possibly the most expensive, is what kind of tile to use in your newly renovated space, especially if you plan a showpiece shower.
Make sure to check out these different types of tile styles before you commit on a design.
There’s perhaps no tile style more classic than the rectangular glossy porcelain type that gets its name from metropolitan subway stations. Clean and classy, set in straight lines or in a herringbone pattern, subway tile can be used alone or in tandem with other, funkier, bright tiles. Though white is the standard, subway tiles do come in multiple colors.
Glass Mosaic Tiles
Mosaic glass tiles add brightness, color, and visual interest to a shower, whether they’re used to cover an entire wall, as a rail-level border, or as multiple accent pieces strategically scattered among other tiles. Usually shaped as small squares, glass mosaic tiles capture and reflect light and come in a vast selection of colors, including metallic and iridescent.
