We wanted to go with tile flooring in the upstairs bathroom. Do you have a favorite material to use for the bathroom floor?
Tile is super easy to clean, and it’s not a big deal when it gets wet.
There are so many tile options! It can almost be overwhelming. We kept a few things in mind as we looked.
We wanted something neutral. I’d rather have color on the walls – either wall color or wall decor – than on the floor so that the eyes aren’t immediately drawn to the floor.
We were planning to do a (mostly) white subway tiled tub and white vanities, so we wanted the flooring to mesh well with these. We liked the cream colored tiles.
Tile comes in all sorts of sizes – super small to huge.
We tended to lean towards big squares.
When looking at tiles in store and online – lots of time spent on Pinterest and Houzz during the renovation – we saw some floors with the squares set as squares and others in a diamond pattern. I liked the square look. What do you prefer?
Wow, there are a lot of grout options. We wanted something lighter than the tile but nothing too white. We went with a neutral, off-white color. We wanted grout that was lighter than the tile to keep the floor light in color.
Here’s what the final floor looks like:
We love how it turned out!
