(Family Features) Updating the flooring can help infuse new life into tired, outdated bathrooms. For an upscale, polished look that doesn’t have to break the bank, consider installing tile flooring.
Before you get started, you’ll want to make some decisions about the look and feel of your flooring:
Ceramic or stone? Weigh factors such as porosity, how slippery the surface may be when wet and how well it retains heat or cold. Ultimately, your decision hinges on the needs and uses of your family.
Complement or contrast? Define the overall style you want as well as the colors and tones that will help best achieve your vision.
Big or small? Generally, the larger the tile, the fewer grout lines, and too many grout lines in a smaller space can create the illusion of clutter. However, smaller tiles can eliminate the need to make multiple awkward cuts, and small tiles are perfect for creating accent patterns or introducing a splash of color.
When you’ve got your overall look and materials selected, keep these steps in mind as you begin laying the flooring:
