You will notice a wide variety of materials that are suitable for use in this more humid and wet part of the home, each offering its own distinct range of benefits and characteristics in the bathroom.
Bathroom floor tiles for example, are available in an immense selection of luscious materials including classic porcelain tiles, natural stone tiles, terrazzo tiles and even concrete tiles. When choosing your new bathroom floor tiles, it is important to consider the tile’s material and ensure it will be suitable for the increased amount of moisture and humidity in the bathroom. Porcelain tiles and marble tiles are both some of the most popular solutions for this type of application, offering a durable and hard wearing solution.
When selecting bathroom wall tiles however, you will notice your options are incredibly more varied with selections available in 3D tiles, hyper-glossy handmade tiles and plenty more! As these types of tiles are restricted to wall use only, there are many more elaborate and ornate decorative tile solutions available to choose from that will help you bring your creative vision to life. Bathroom tiles will form the basis of your design’s overall aesthetic, making their selection an important step in the interior design process and in curating the room’s colour and materials scheme.
As a general rule of thumb, starting your tile selection with your floor tiles and then moving on to your bathroom wall tiles and bathroom feature tiles, will allow you the opportunity to see each element of your design individually and as a whole colour story, helping you to narrow down your options until you find that perfect designer style.

What Types of Tiles can I use in the Bathroom?
Bathroom tiles are available in an endless range of materials, sizes, shapes and colours. There are many different types of tiles available to choose from for the bathroom including concrete tiles and natural stone options such as marble tiles or travertine tiles, as well as more contemporary solutions such as glass tiles, porcelain or ceramic tiles. When selecting your new bathroom wall tiles or floor tiles, it is important to consider their material and how this can best be used in the wet and humid environment of the bathroom. Natural stone tiles and porcelain tiles for example, are both exceptionally popular choices for use as a bathroom floor tile solution, providing strength, longevity and an elegant finish in the space. While concrete tiles can also be used as a flooring solution in the bathroom, these tiles are often not recommended for use as a floor tile within the shower area specifically as pooling water as well as ingredients in many cleansers and soaps can cause discoloration on their surface. There are many exciting alternative solutions however that will allow you to explore different styles and materials when selecting your new bathroom floor tiles.
Bathroom Wall Tiles: Do I need to tile to the ceiling?
This all depends on your bathroom’s ceiling height. For standard ceiling heights of 2.4m, tiling to the ceiling will create a luxurious and tidy finish. Higher ceilings however, will offer more choices in how to best approach this tiling dilemma! You may choose to stop your wall tiles at a specific height for spaces with a 3m or more ceiling, using a water resistant wall paint or wallpaper above this line, again creating a tidy and luxe finish in your design scheme. Should you prefer to tile right up to the ceiling in taller rooms, it is important to keep in mind that this may incur additional costs in your renovation or new build project in terms of materials and labour.
Tile Ratings: What to Consider when Selecting Bathroom Tiles
When designing a commercial or retail space, there are many specific requirements to consider when it comes to specifying your floor tiles. Each different type of project (i.e. retail, public restrooms, commercial kitchens, etc.) will have its own set of requirements in terms of slip resistance and ratings of floor tiles; find out more in our guide to tile ratings. During your tile selection consultation with us, we will explore the many different options available to suit your specific project’s requirements. When it comes to specifying tiles for a residential setting however, these restrictions are much more simplified, offering you much more freedom in your selections. Of course, we would recommend a certain level of care is taken when specifying floor tiles in wet areas of the home as well as outdoor spaces to ensure a safe and comfortable experience.
Sealing your Bathroom Tiles
Certain types of porous wall and floor tiles will require sealing in order to ensure they are adequately protected in the bathroom. Porous tile types include: natural stone tiles (for example: marble tiles or travertine tiles), concrete tiles (also referred to as cement tiles or encaustic tiles), terrazzo tiles, terracotta tiles and unglazed ceramic tiles.
Bathroom tiles that are porous in nature can absorb liquid or powder spills as well as humidity and moisture that can lead to discolouration or staining. A quality tile sealer will greatly assist in the prevention of these issues: You will find more information on caring for and sealing your bathroom tiles in our Resources Page.
Choosing Tiles for a Small Bathroom
Choosing tiles for a small bathroom can seem like a challenge at first! The trick to creating the perfect look is to combine different tile sizes, grout colours and tile finishes for a clutter-free look that will enhance the perception of space in the room. Use large format floor tiles to minimise the appearance of grout lines in the room; this will reduce the amount of visual clutter in your small bathroom. Next, pair your bathroom floor tiles with glossy wall tiles that will reflect light about the space, further enhancing the room’s dimensions. Complete the look with a tile grout colour that will complement your chosen tile’s colour, blending in to create a near seamless look.
