Building 101: Choosing the Perfect Bathroom Tile

Play safe with natural colors -- just inject textures and rich hues


Since the bathroom is one of the most frequented areas in the house, we should make an effort to make it look good. At a loss on what kind of bathroom tiles to go for? Natural colors will surely do the trick.

Create interest by choosing tiles with lots of visual and tactile depth. Consider picking out mosaic tiles in metallic finishes like silver or gold. In any case, a pop of color wouldn't hurt.
