Even in ceraimic tiles, there are many painted or embossed styles to choose from. These are especially useful to create a border around an area, a chair rail design, or to frame a mirror or cabinet. You can also scatter hand-painted or embossed tiles at intervals on a wall to create texture and color. A word of warning if you're decorating on a budget: decorative tiles are sold by the piece. Before you go shopping, measure the space you're going to tile so that you know how many tiles you'll need. If you're doing a shower enclosure or countertop, the number adds up. And then multiply the number of tiles by the price per piece, and the nubmer gets big quickly. Remember to add in edging pieces, corners, and borders. An extra dollar per tile could mean a lot of dollars extra for the whole room.
You'll want to select a tile that has a water absorption rating of less than 3% (lower than what's recommended for the floors) and has good traction (a coefficient of friction that's greater than or equal to .60). If you're debating between an open or closed shower take a look at our pros and cons to help make your decision. If you can't afford a full gut-job then redecorating is one way to breath new life into the space without spending a fortune. There are many easy bathroom decorating ideas you can implement, from changing the hardware on your cabinetry to a new coat of paint. Colors and textures that might look ostentatious in other rooms in your home are fine in the bathroom, such as dark hues like burgundy or wild prints and patterns.
A corner niche, just like.a corner shelf, is practical because it takes advantage of an otherwise unused space. This design strategy is particularly useful when dealing with a small space like this shower unit created by Perianth Interior Design for an extension of an old house in New York. Sometimes a shower niche can stand out and other times it can look very natural, like this one created for the Box House by 1:1 arquitetura:design. The niche has the exact same length as the window so it almost looks as if there are two openings in the wall. If you want the niche to double as an architectural feature and as an eye-catching decor element, a common strategy is to use tiles in a different color or style than those used for the rest of the walls. Vertical niches can emphasize the height of a space which is useful not only when you're dealing with a small bathroom but which small enclosed spaces such as shower units.
