What To Look For In A Bathroom Tile?

It doesn’t matter how well you’ve designed the overall layout when renovating or building a new bathroom. The wrong tile selection can devastate your new bathroom’s look and feel. However, the right bathroom tile can turn your bathroom into the highlight of your 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 essential when choosing a bathroom tile. At Aurees Tiles, we have an extensive selection of bathroom tiles for you in various finishes. To help you through the selection process, we’ve listed some things to consider when selecting 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 more significant the bathroom, the larger the bathroom tile, and vice versa, but it comes down to your design and personal preference.


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



If you’re using different-sized bathroom tiles, you’ll want to ensure their proportions work well together. Your tiles must line up everywhere they meet.


If this sounds confusing, we are happy to help. 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 of grout. Many look at a tile without thinking about how it will look once grouted. While smaller tiles can look great, it is essential to remember that many grout lines may cause them to look busy and overwhelming.


It is also essential to consider your choice of 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.
