Bathroom remodels can be challenging. Most people believe that the easiest part is choosing bathroom tiles but this is not always the case. There are a lot of things that you need to keep in mind like the budget, tiling materials and overall design scheme of the bathroom. At Sydney Tile Gallery we have a wide selection of tiles available in our store. We also know a thing or two about how to choose the best bathroom tiles. To find out how you can choose the best bathroom tiles, read on.
1. Know your materials
There are four main tile materials that you can choose from. These are marble tiles, granite tiles, travertine tiles and porcelain tiles. Marble is a type of stone that is popular in tile making. They are hailed for their quality, sparkle and natural texture which make them a great choice for bathrooms. To view our exclusive Marble Collection, click HERE. Granite tiling is also a type of stone flooring that is particularly strong and hard. It had specks of quartz and feldspar which give it a unique sparkle. To view our Granite Collection, click HERE.
Travertine tiles are more affordable than marble tiles and granite tiles. They have their own luxurious and exclusive appeal even at a lower price point. They are very easy to clean which makes them perfect for bathroom tiling. To view our exclusive Travertine Collection, click HERE. Finally, porcelain tiles are slightly more expensive than the other types of tiles that we have discussed but there is a good reason for this. Porcelain times are strong, durable and easy to clean.

2. Sample your choices before your purchase
After choosing the tiling material, there will still be a lot of options available to you. You need to narrow these down to about three or four. Take a sample of each type of tile to your bathroom so that you can see what it will look like. Tiles may look appealing in the shop because of the lighting and how they are displayed and not have the same lustre in your bathroom.
3. Choose the right colour palette
The right colour palette can help you maximise the space in your bathroom. Light and neutral shades are a great choice if you also want your bathroom to look more expensive. To keep things looking more upbeat you can mix and match different types of tiles or have a feature wall with a showstopping tile.
