Tips for Tiling a Small Bathroom

There are so many things to consider when installing tile for any project, but tiling a small bathroom brings up a few things you may not think about in other larger spaces. Your intent is to make the room feel larger than it already is, which requires some strategy. Read along further for the best practices to use in your small bathroom tile project.

Use Quality Tile

Even though you are tiling a small space, it is still imperative to use quality tile. Though saving a few dollars at the beginning of the process is hard to say no to, settling on cheaper, lower-grade tiles will end up costing you way more in the long run as they will need repair sooner or later.

Buy Enough Tile

When working with a small space, it is easy to seriously underestimate the amount of material you need. Make sure to measure your space multiple times, and still purchase enough extra tile in case something goes wrong. It is always better to have extra at the end of a project than to have to stop midway to go back and purchase more tile.

Stay Monochromatic

In a small space, using dark colors and different tones can actually cause your space to feel much smaller. Instead, keep a theme of light, airy, neutral colors in your small bathroom. Use tiles with the same tones and colors as your walls.

Keep it Simple

We understand and love the maximalist aesthetic. However, in a small space, it does not work if you are trying to make it look and feel larger. Big bold patterns and textures will cause the room to shrink. If you are looking for a pop of color or texture, choose fixtures and decor that will bring that in instead.

Incorporate Natural Light

If you have an existing window or the opportunity to install a window unit, take advantage of it. Incorporating natural light into a small bathroom is one of the best things you can do for the space. Natural light is one of the easiest ways you can get your small bathroom space to feel much larger. If there is no opportunity for a window to let this light in, it is important to try to replicate this light with the light fixtures and bulbs in the room.
