Tile Patterns Not only color combinations but combinations of tiling patterns can be used. Such as diamond pattern followed by a border and then a simple rectangular arrangement. Floors can be equally creative with diamond, square, rectangular and brick work patterns. If using a rectangular tile, aligning the longer tile dimension with smallest room dimension tends to expand the perception of that room dimension. The reverse is equally true, and in this manner a bathroom can be made appear wider or narrower. How much pattern effect could be used to achieve an optimal result would depend to a large extent on the size of the bathroom. Tile Material Conventionally, ceramic and marble tiles have been used in bathrooms. Both materials are relatively cheap, widely available and easy to work with in the sense that cutting tools are readily obtainable. Tile material trend is fast changing in favor of porcelain as opposed to the more common marble and ceramic tile. With the projected sales of porcelain tiles to double within the next ten years. These tiles are nonporous, extremely hard, and show little signs of wear even in high traffic areas. So any bathrooms fitted with these tiles would maintain its as new look over many years.

Everyone has a different idea of what the best colors for this room are, and this is a good thing since it creates a nice and welcome diversity from home to home. So here are some bathroom color tips that you can use in your own sacred space.
What tile to use and how much of the walls you intend to cover are critical issues when you come to redesign your bathroom. Bear in mind that the space you are designing is probably where you are going to start the day so the psychological effects of color and pattern cannot be understated. The question of a fully or partially tiled bathroom is an issue partially of taste and convention. Partial tiling offers the option of easily changing or embellishing to some extent the color scheme of the bathroom by simply painting the remaining wall or for mural or stucco type designs. Full tiling does not offer such flexibility but, it does offer the advantage of easy to maintain hygiene. Tiled walls can be easily cleaned and requires minimal maintenance.
Synthetic and engineered finishes are - as the name implies - specifically engineered to last for only a set amount of time before they fail and require replacement. Natural materials, while certainly not immune to premature damage - this usually occurs if unskilled or improper installation procedures are used - tend to last much longer, and, more importantly, they age gracefully. An engineered material will look ugly after wearing out, contrarily, a natural material will acquire a warm patina over the decades - why else, for example, is historic architecture so cherished? The natural materials used in such architecture - stone, brick, ceramics, hardwoods - age beautifully over time and looks better the older they get. dRemodeling thus recommends that the homeowner consider using various stones for bathroom surfaces - granite, marble, sandstone, and similar stones are extremely durable and will offer decades of reliable service if properly installed and maintained. High quality ceramic tile is also suitable.
Peach Peach is also in the category of warm colors so can be used for a warmer ambiance. With this the bathroom will also look bigger. Red You can use the red color if you need attention. Red color will make the eyes turn around to itself. You must have noticed that in a big room if you will keep the red rose then everyone will ask for it. It is because of the attention grabbing quality of the color. But do not over use it as this is an energy rich color. You can paint one of the bathroom wall in this color and then pick the contrasting bathroom accessories. Purple Purple color is associated with royalty and wealth. Use this color carefully in the bathroom for more positive effect as overuse of purple color can lead to fake and artificial atmosphere. White Color Many people do not do much experiment with color and prefer white that symbolises peace. White bathroom looks very classy. But here pick the bathroom accessories in a way that bring out the effect of white color more predominantly.
Pastel shades in small rooms add colour without being overpowering. Peaches and pale pinks create a beautiful backdrop, easily flattering most skin tones. Theyre great for a guest bathroom. Placing a mirror on top leaves guests glowing and uplifted. To ground a room select a slightly darker colour for the floor. To create spacious perceptions have the ceiling a lighter shade than the walls. You are best to choose between 3 - 6 colours to work with in one room. This doesnt mean go crazy. Pick one strong vibrant color and use different shades of the same colour. Have one lighter or neutral color (best for the walls), one medium shade from the same family (great for shower curtains and larger fittings) and then use an accent colour on statement pieces (towels, tumblers, soap dishes) to spice things up a bit. The colors you choose will impact on how you want the room to feel. Redecorating or repainting your bathroom can be a daunting task. However as long as you know what you want out of your bathroom and how you want it to feel you can make the perfect choice by adding a personal touch to your design.
