Typically you will choose a floor tile, a wall tile for the shower/ tub surround or even all of the walls in your bathroom, and an accent tile that will be used as a focal point. This is just a guideline. Don’t be afraid to break the rules a little bit.
As for carpet, while the same soft pile you put in your master bedroom is a no-no (unless you want to grow mildew), there are carpet options that are water-, mildew- and stain-resistant with backing that will not allow water to seep into the padding. There are carpet tiles on the market that make removing single panels for cleaning easy (such as FLOR). You may choose to carpet one section of a master bath—say an area where you place an upholstered seat, or a space that serves as a tranquil transition area. As an alternative, consider rugs that can offer the same softness and easily be removed and cleaned.
While there are many positive aspects about porcelain, there are a few downsides you must know. As I stated above, the cost can scare people away. While it’s fairly simple to install porcelain tile, the installation process can be time-consuming. Make sure that whoever puts it in seals the grout well because stained grout is not pretty.
The drawbacks are worth noting. The maintenance is ongoing and needs to be taken seriously if you want to preserve it. To ensure your natural stone floors provide you with a lifetime of beauty and effectiveness, you must polish the stone floor every few years. In addition to consistent upkeep, it’s important to know that stone tile has limited resistance to chemicals and stains. It costs more than ceramic tile to install and the final product rarely looks like the sample you originally select. If you’re thinking about remodeling your bathroom to include stone floors, be sure to get help from an expert.
