The Pros and Cons of Different Siding Materials

In a beautifully designed bathroom, most people’s eyes are drawn immediately to the floors and walls, especially if they have a pattern, texture, or color that pops. That’s why installing tile, or redoing your existing tile, can really transform your bathroom into something you’ll be proud to show off.

Bellari has been offering home remodeling solutions since 1950, so we’ve helped many New Jersey homeowners transform outdated bathrooms into sleek, inviting spaces that answer all their style and functionality demands. As you delve into the world of bathroom remodeling, we’ll offer some tiling ideas drawn from our experience to serve as inspiration.

Play Around with Pattern

Tile can take a plain bathroom and turn it into a luxury oasis or a rustic retreat. Whether you’re hoping to achieve a modern, contemporary, or retro look for your North, Central, or South Jersey home, there’s a tile out there for you. Some of the most common tile designs today include:

  • Natural-looking stone tiles
  • Classic subway tiles
  • Wood-patterned tiles

You can also explore ornate tile designs and try out bold colors to truly showcase your style. Bright turquoise tile might look great in your kids’ bathroom, while marble tile or brick-inspired tile would help your master bath stand out. Perhaps a simple, yet elegant, tile would look perfect in your powder room.

Think about Laying the Tile

There are numerous different ways you can lay bathroom tile. For example, the straight pattern is probably the most common. It means the tiles are stacked evenly on top of each other. However, brick, herringbone, chevron, basket weave, diagonal, mosaic, and cobblestone patters are all great options to consider, too. If you’re using a solid-color tile, arranging it in an interesting pattern can help add a subtle hint of visual interest you’ll appreciate time and again.

Add an Accent Piece

Use tiles to create an accent wall in the bathroom. You can also select different tiles to use for the shower shelves to contrast with the shower walls and add more visual interest. Just remember to make sure that all the tiles complement each other and produce an overall cohesive look.
