Step 1. Do Your Homework

Like anything in the home improvement sector, you must research before committing to a sale. So, when choosing suitable bathroom tiles, it is necessary to understand the suitability of the different materials. The market’s three most common types of tiles are porcelain, ceramic and stone. Each has its benefits and setbacks depending on its purpose and location in the house.

Step 2. Look at the Slip Wear Rating

Our bathrooms are always wet and mostly moist most of the time. Thus, slip resistance is especially crucial for bathroom tiles. A slip-rating test subjects tiles through testing that will assess the character of the surface to determine which is best suited for specific environmental conditions. These tests will measure the tiles’ long-term wear throughout the lifespan of a floor, as well as consider the amount of foot traffic, cleaning maintenance and wear characteristics.


When it comes to bathroom tiles, it is recommended that you always opt for tiles with a minimum slip rating of PEI Class 2.


Step 3. Choosing the Right Tile Size

When choosing tiles for your room, the basic rule of thumb is to consider the size of your bathroom first. A large bathroom will look spacious and stunning with a large format tile for both the walls and floors. However, when it comes to smaller spaces, patterns can help create the illusion of a bigger space, giving the eye a longer path to follow.


At Aurees Tiles, we can assess your bathroom measurements and help you choose a tile that will fit in well with the size of your room while also complementing your design style.


Step 4. Take Home a Sample Before Buying

Taking a sample bathroom tile home is critical to ensuring that your tile will go with your paint choice and bathroom fittings and fixtures. It will also help you visualise your entire design and re-evaluate the style and size of your bathroom tile.
