What To Look For In A Bathroom Tile?


When it comes to renovating or building a new bathroom, it doesn’t matter how well you’ve designed the overall layout making the wrong tile selection can have a devastating effect on your new bathrooms overall look and feel. However, the right bathroom tile can turn your bathroom into the highlight of the home. Alternatively, if your bathroom could do with a makeover, selecting some new tiles can be what is needed to give it the facelift it needs.

The size, shape, material and colour are all important areas to look at when choosing a bathroom tile. At Aurees Tiles, we have an extensive selection of bathroom tiles for you to choose from in various finishes. To help you through the selection process, we’ve listed some things to consider when choosing the perfect bathroom tile below:

Shape and Size

In general, the overall size and layout of your bathroom will determine the size and shape of your tile. The rule tends to go; the larger the bathroom, the larger the bathroom tile and vice versa, but it really comes down to your design and personal preference.

Also, consider the surfaces that may require tiling as individual planes interacting with one another. Look at where they start and stop, how they meet up and if there are windows or ledges that require factoring in. Thinking about these things will help you choose a bathroom tile that best compliments your space and flows seamlessly with lines that are created in the bathroom design.


If you’re using a selection of different sized bathroom tiles, you’ll want to ensure that their proportions work well together. It is important that your tiles line up everywhere they meet.

If this sounds confusing, we are happy to help. Simply bring in your home plans, and we can help you select bathroom tiles that go well together in all aspects.

Grout Colour

An area that many seem to overlook is your choice in the grout. Many look at a tile, without thinking about how it will look once grouted. While smaller tiles can look great, it is important to keep in mind of a large number of grout lines that may cause it to look busy and overwhelming.

It is also important to consider your choice in grout colour as it can dramatically affect your final aesthetic. Grout in a similar colour to your bathroom tile will result in a more subtle result.
