In previous blog posts, we emphasize the importance of finding ways to add your personality to your home’s décor. It’s much easier to do this starting with the bathroom since it’s a small area to redecorate and makeover. One of the ways to bring in personality is to add bold patterns and colors because it revitalizes the space instantly.
Have you ever considered replacing the floors in your bathroom? There are so many flooring options to choose from that it can feel overwhelming. Instead of going with the run-of-the-mill plain tiles and solid colors for the floor, why not spice up the space with patterned tiles.
One of the more important steps is deciding on a pattern that you can love for years. A number of choices are available, for instance, you could go with different sized/colored tiles and create a pattern of your own. You could also decide on the least complex option, which is the same-sized tiles and two different colors, and use an alternating pattern. But, if you want something different and bold, then you want a pre-patterned tile.
