Top Tips: White Bathroom Tiles
Small vs Large White Bathroom Tiles
Contrary to what you may think, the size of your bathroom does not necessarily translate into the size of tile you need for the space. If you choose smaller tiles, you’ll have more grout lines visually breaking up the walls – an effect which a welcome aesthetic touch in bigger spaces, but might backfire if your bathroom is already on the small side.
In fact, large tiles might be the best choice for smaller spaces, as they expand the space through creating a smoother flow between individual tiles and making the bathroom look less cluttered by grout lines. Don’t give up on small tiles completely though – small coloured mosaic tiles are fantastic for a feature wall in a bathroom otherwise tiled in large white tiles.
White Bathroom Tile Ideas for Small Bathrooms
Choosing white bathroom tiles is in itself a great start if you want to make your bathroom look more spacious. Mix this with other soft tones like beige and light grey to further boost the brightness, or even keep it white wall to wall.
Use white bathroom tiles with a reflective finish such as gloss to exaggerate the light entering the space, and experiment with different patterns which will trick the eye into perceiving the room as larger than it is, such as diagonal or brick bond.
White Bathroom Tile Ideas for Large Bathrooms
When you are working with a larger space, you can choose to create a uniform look by installing matching white bathroom tiles throughout for a flowing look which invites the eye to slide across the walls and maintains the feeling of airiness.
If you prefer breaking up the space, you can add patterned or décor tiles which match your block white bathroom tile, and create a point of interest in the shape of a backsplash, feature wall or even as a border midway up the wall.
How to Clean White Bathroom Tiles
One responsibility that comes with the many perks of having white bathroom tiles is cleaning them – after all, you don’t want them to lose their sparkle and make the whole space look grotty.
Start by attacking the grout with a toothbrush and a cleaning agent such as a baking soda and vinegar mix. Chlorine-based bleach or specialist cleaners are your friends if you’re dealing with staining or mould, but you should only use these on white grout, as they can ruin the finish of coloured one.
For the tiles themselves, start by running a hot shower to open up the pores of the ceramic and allow yourself better access to the dirt lodged into the material. If you are a fan of home remedies, you can use the mix of vinegar and baking soda here as well and gently wipe the tiles using a sponge.
