Here are 3 popular bathroom tile options:

  1. Natural Stone – No building material has the durability of natural stones does and they are the symbol of quality and longevity. With proper care and maintenance, stones can last indefinitely. Thus stone tiles have become very popular in the last decade for flooring in a kitchen, or bathroom. The stone options that are generally available are marble, granite, slate, onyx, limestone. Each piece of stone is unique and brings a different ambiance to your bathroom with its warm colors. It also has limitless options for your bathroom showers, backsplashes, floors, and even the entire walls.
  2. Ceramic Tile – This man-made material has always been one of the most popular options for your bathroom. It is made from fired clay mixed with sediments. Prices are kept low because the raw material is easy to gather in large quantities.  One of the biggest advantages is its low maintenance and it is easy to clean. It is also largely scratch and crack resistant because of its ability to withstand high pressure. Ceramic is highly customizable with many different shapes and colors, making it great for homeowners.
  3. Glass Tile – Most people associate glass as a very fragile material, however, when it is manufactured for a bathroom, it is actually strong and resilient. It is naturally impervious to water and stains. Glass tiles can also make your space feel larger by reflecting light in various parts of the room. Glass tiles are green materials as they are made 100 % from recycled glass.
