When you want to replace a worn-out bathroom floor there are many options to choose from if you’ve decided on floor tiles. You could go with traditional ceramic tile, natural stone such as granite or marble, or even porcelain.

Bathroom tiling is known for its durability and requires little maintenance. They offer a little bit of luxury for you at an affordable price and you can choose from a huge variety of colours and styles. Tiles are also one of the easiest ways to update your bathroom without spending a lot of money. A professional bathroom floor tiler can help with your bathroom renovation to achieve that quality magazine look in the smallest room in your house.

Why Floor Tiles are the Best Choice for Your Bathroom

Tiles are a great choice for bathrooms because they are water-resistant, low-maintenance, are versatile in terms of design, have a vast array of colour options and are durable and cost-effective.

Water Resistant

Lots of materials claim to be waterproof but aren’t. However, tiles are generally made from ceramic, porcelain and natural stone—such as granite or marble, and are resistant to water, holding up exceptionally well against water and humidity. Waterproofing is essential in a bathroom to protect walls and floors, so tiles are a great choice.


Tiling your bathroom floor can have many of the same benefits as concrete flooring. Tiles are hard-wearing and long-lasting. Some materials require a little more care than others but for a totally no-worry option, ceramic tiles are hard to beat as they don’t require any special maintenance and won’t scratch.

Versatile Designs

Tiles can be installed on bathroom walls and all other surfaces, so whatever you choose for your floor will give you the opportunity to choose a co-ordinating option from the same family of tiles. You can choose a complementing colour and style or mix it up with other designs from a huge range of shapes, patterns and colours. 


If you’ve chosen the right tile for the right job you can expect them to look good for years to come. You only have to check out the ancient floor tiles in Pompeii, that despite being covered for centuries with molten lava, are still in great condition.


With a low-cost life cycle that includes minimal maintenance costs, tiles have one of the longest flooring lifespans. Additionally, good tiling can help you increase the value of your property.

Choosing a Style for Your Bathroom Floor

There are so many elements to tiling that you can create a design that is totally unique by combining different shapes, patterns, textures and colours that can also be used with complementary wall tiles.

Tile Shapes

Popular shapes for bathroom tiles include:

Squares and Rectangles 
Square tiles are available in a huge range of sizes. In a small bathroom, huge squares in lighter colours can make the floor space seem bigger. Rectangles offer another option from smaller, Victorian-style tiles to larger, slab like tiles.

Mosaics are typically mounted on sheets that makes installation quicker and easier. They offer a creative combination of colours, materials, textures and shapes and are a good choice for bathroom flooring, showers and as an accent in small spaces, such as recessed shelves.

Also known as penny tiles, they are a small mosaic tile that look good in bathrooms with limited floor space.

Hexagons can add a honeycombed look to your floor, and combining it with a colourful grout can create a distinctive look to your bathroom floor.

Decorative and Patterned Tiles

Wood textures
If you like the bare floorboard look then you can now create it with tiles. Wooden floors are not recommended for bathrooms as they aren’t waterproof and don’t have the durability to cope with the moisture that bathrooms produce.

Installing metallic tiles can create an industrial look for your bathroom when combined with metal pipework and a neutral colour palette to establish the perfect setting for a roll top bath.

Wallpaper Patterns
Decorative, wallpaper-patterned tiles can be used to stunning effect on bathroom floors. It creates an opulent look in small bathrooms that may not have the space for additional décor details. 

Using Tile Spacers

Tile spacers are often an afterthought when it comes to tiling, but they can be used creatively for unique and interesting results. For example, staggering tile spacers at different intervals creates a diamond pattern effect or a herringbone pattern is made by offsetting spacers in opposite direction. 

A bathroom should be a place of serenity and relaxation, a private oasis away from the rest of the world – and what better way to achieve this than by hiring an expert bathroom floor tiler.
