Big or small tile units?
Tiles sizes always vary, you can always find giant tile units that may reach a meter long and small tile units, if your bathroom is small then don’t use these giant tile units because you will get a lot of cut offs which will lead to tile waste, but that doesn’t mean that the large and medium sized tiles are not good, if your bathroom is big then you can use the square or rectangle tiles with patterns that which will give you style.
Which tile colours to use?
General rule: when the space is tight the colour is light.
If your bathroom is small then don’t use dark tile colours, the light colour makes an impact in small bathrooms as it is going to give you the feel of calm and clean, also as we agreed before it will give you the illusion of more space, examples of light colours: white, cream, oak and light grey.
If you are into dark colours more then we can’t take that from you, you can always mix between dark and light colours, for example: you can use a mixture between black and white but with ratios like 1:3 black and 2:3 white.
Plain is boring, what about patterns?
