If you are trying to find a way to update your bathroom without spending all of your money on a complete remodel, you should know that ceramic tile in the bathroom is becoming a very popular choice. One of the main reasons for people discovering a renewed love of ceramic is the pure beauty of it, when done right. When you choose beautiful ceramic tile in the bathroom, you are not limiting your creativity. You are simply ensuring that you don’t have to redo the bathroom anytime in the near future.
Ceramic tiles are available in a variety of colors and even a few patterns. They are durable and look amazing when installed. You can mix it up and use tiles on the floor, vanity, shower walls, and more. You can choose different colors to border with or make certain areas of your bathroom stand out. Due to the durability of it, when other areas of your home need repainting, you can skip the bathroom. They do not sustain damage the way that vinyl floor tiles do and you will not cause major damage if you jump out of the shower with wet feet. Shower walls are easier to clean if you use ceramic in them as well.
Many people use subway tiles in their walk-in showers or as a backdrop to their claw foot tub and then they put borders around them. The borders create a feature area in the bathroom. It can make it look larger than it actually is and instantly makes it look more appealing.
The only true downside to ceramic is that the walls and floors must be level and there are some issues that you may have to overcome regarding the actual installation of it. For some people this means that they may have to replace the flooring or sheetrock that is already in place. If you get beyond that, it is time consuming to install ceramic tiles. You have to plan it out, put the adhesive and tile down. From there, you will wait for it to dry. Then grout it, and wait, then clean and protect it. However, when you get it installed, it will be well worth the little bit extra that you had to put into it and you will completely understand why so many others are putting ceramic in their bathrooms.
