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). Define zones in the room by using a different tile in the shower. You‘ll want to use a tile that has a water-absorption rating of less than 3 percent (lower than what‘s recommended for the floors) and has good traction (a coefficient of friction that‘s greater than or equal to .60). If budget is not 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.
Mid-century American bathrooms were in love with pattern and color. The 1940s saw suburbs filled with bubblegum-pink bathroom floors, mint-green countertops, and even tubs, toilets and sinks in vibrant colors. The bold bathroom trend lasted into the 1970s — and many older homes have the avocado tiles to prove it. Then, in the 1980s, we suddenly got sick of bathrooms that had something to say. Ever since then, we‘ve been covering our bathrooms in safe, quiet choices such as beige, gray and plain white. A neutral bathroom is not all bad. But these gorgeous, graphic tile treatments make us want to kiss quiet bathrooms goodbye.
