Every day we are in our bathrooms, more than once on most occasions. We don’t often pay the floor we are standing on much mind, however if you had to renovate or remodel or design your bathroom, you may want to pay some attention to the bathroom floor tiles. Bathroom floor tiles are important. They need to last years and be durable, water resistant and mildew resistant. We need the bathroom floor tiles we choose for our new bathrooms to be easy to clean and easy to maintain.
Most bathrooms in cookie cutter subdivision homes unless we paid attention got the rolled out linoleum treatment. That is okay, it is not horrible, but it is not always our best choice especially when we see what we can do with the choices of tiles and colours we have at our disposal today. Ceramics, glass, stone, there are so many choices and shapes. We can change our bathroom and its look in two days with a simple flooring change and a box of elegant tiles.
