Buying tiles in the bathroom: what you need to know



It all seems a piece of cake, but if you delve more deeply into the different types, types and materials of tiles, you will soon notice that in some cases you can no longer see the wood for the trees. Or through the tiles in the bathroom. To make sure you make the right choice when shopping for your bathroom tiles, I wrote this blog for you. Have fun reading!

For starters, there are floor and wall tiles

You can divide tiles for the bathroom into two categories. These are floor and wall tiles. Bathroom tiles naturally protect against the effect of moisture because you have to deal with this daily and sometimes more than once a day. Tiles also make the bathroom easy to clean. In short: enough advantages to choose bathroom tiles.

Tiles for the floor

Buying floor tiles is not something you just do. It takes a lot of work and attention. For example, you can make the choice for yourself to go with the bathroom trends of the season, or to choose a tile that is almost always modern and fashionable.

Anyway, it is important that you know in advance what kind of tiles you want to buy. Are you going for a larger size or smaller? What color do you want to buy the tile? Or do you want different colors to create a kind of mosaic pattern? There is also quite a difference in quality when you want to buy tiles for the bathroom. In short: buying tiles requires attention and knowledge. Something you may not always have at home, but can come in handy and useful. For example, consider the type of tile.

Types of bathroom tiles

For starters, you have a number of different types of bathroom tiles. We distinguish ceramic or natural stone tiles.

Ceramic tiles are often cheaper than natural stone tiles. This is because natural stone tiles retain the heat better than ceramic tiles. They each have their own pros and cons. For example, ceramic tiles often have a nice gloss layer because they are fired with a glaze layer. This layer also makes the tile water resistant.

Natural stone tiles are a bit more difficult to clean than ceramic tiles, but they are a lot nicer. In some cases, they also last a lot longer, because they cannot be cleaned with chemical cleaning agents. This is also better for the environment!

Hopefully this blog has provided some clarity about bathroom tiles and you can now choose which tiles you want to lay in your new bathroom. Good luck!
