What Houzz contributors are saying:
Which sizes do you recommend for wall tiles?Slab tiles of 800x1,600 millimetres and above are a brilliant choice for walls in small bathrooms. Think shower cubicles with no grout joints, which means no mould or mildew scrubbing, no cracking grout, no grout discolouration – and only ever a quick wipe to clean.Classic 75x150-millimetre subway tiles look great in a small bathroom and will add a touch of character to the space.Tip: The way you lay tiles will have a huge impact on the final look: herringbone, basketweave and brick-bond layouts will create interesting patterns on your walls and floor. To make the pattern really stand out, choose a grout in a contrasting colour.
The materials palette is simple and robust. A timber vanity and shelving provide warmth and grain against the white handmade ceramic wall tiles and porcelain floor tiles, which evoke the look of slate. The finger-pull handle detail in the wardrobes is continued in the ensuite vanity.American oak solid timber vanity benchtop; American oak veneer on vanity doors; Opal White handmade ceramic wall tiles (300 x 75 millimetres) and Waterfall Grey Flow floor tiles (300 x 600 millimetres): Signorino Tile Gallery; Sussex Scala tapware and AXA Sheer Square Vessel Basin: Reece
