I have had so many clients come to me very confused by what to do with their small bathroom’s floor. Here is my advice for choosing a tile that works for your space.
DO go for a mosaic. It will give a smooth even effect to your floor. Plus- mosaic tends to be pricy so this is totally the right place to experiment with that hexagon nero marquina you love. The impact will be impressive without breaking the bank since you probably won’t need that much.
DON’T go for average 12x12 tiles. These are dead. Literally. All the tile stores are liquidating them. They will break up the floor with too many joints and make it look outdated.
DO go for a larger tile. Like a 12x24, 24x24 or even larger! Make sure you have at least two full visible tiles. A more uniform or lightly textured tile with a matching grout will give a seamless modern look.
DON’T line up the larger rectangular tiles. This will attract the eye to missing space. When you see two full rows and then a row of 1/2 tiles, it totally looks builder-basic. Switch it up with a staggered or brick pattern so you can’t determine where the tiles start or end.
DO try a fun hexagon or pattern tile as long as you stay under 8''x8''.
