But to arrive at a decision is not that easy. With so many products available in the market, a person is bound to get confused. In this blog, we’ll list down some tile types that are really popular when it comes to tiling bathrooms.

The Most Popular Tile for bathrooms are:

  2. Ceramic tiles
  3. Slate Bathroom Tiles
  4. Marble Tiles
  5. Glass Mosaic Bathroom Tiles
  6. Limestone Tiles
  7. Vinyl Tiles
  8. Pebble Bathroom Tiles
  9. Glossy Bathroom Tiles

1. Porcelain Tiles in Bathroom

Porcelain is the best material to use for bathroom tiles if you want them to last a long time. It’s tough, long-lasting, and water-resistant, and it won’t scratch or stain easily. Porcelain can also be used to make stunning effects since it comes in a variety of colors and can be made to look like wood or stone, making it a more versatile option than either. To suit your preferences, both matt and high-gloss effects can be achieved. Porcelain is expensive, but it is a worthwhile investment because it lasts so long. Some tiles that we would want you to check out from our catalog if you’re on the lookout for porcelain tiles, are PCG old Calcutta Marble, PCG Onyx Multi, and BDM Franjo Ivory. There are these and many more such products available on the website. You must check them out.

2. Ceramic Tiles for Bathroom

Ceramic tiles are made of the same materials as porcelain tiles, but with a coarser grind. This makes it slightly less sturdy and water-resistant, but it’s still one of the most durable tiling choices when properly sealed. One of the benefits of ceramic is that several different styles of ceramic tiles can be used to produce a seamless look on both walls and floors. Ceramic tiles are low-cost and easy-to-maintain, and the large range of colors and designs available allows you to achieve a luxury look for a lower price.

3. Slate Bathroom Tiles

Slate tiles are the obvious choice for a high-traffic bathroom that needs a long-lasting and durable finish. Slate is one of the hardest tiling materials, so scratching or chipping it is nearly impossible. It is available in a wide range of colors and textures, with each tile having a distinct look, allowing it to be used to create beautiful original effects in bathrooms of all shapes and sizes. Copper, blue, green, grey, and black are all very popular colors. Slate, like all-natural stones, is pricey, but it’s a worthwhile investment because it’s a common tiling material that will last for years. Some of the latest tiles that have been added to our catalog when it comes to slate tiles are GFT BDF Rustic Natural Brown, GFT BDF Cemento DK Blue, and Sahara Rock P Kota Green. Do check out the full collection of Slate tiles available on the Orientbell website.

4. Marble Tiles in Bathroom

Marble is the perfect tiling material when it comes to luxury. Because of the color veins that run through its surface, it’s perfect for adding texture to your bathroom design. This classic stone is ideal for creating feature elements in your bathroom and goes well with both traditional and modern decor schemes. It must be done with care, and it is a pricey choice, but it is unrivaled in terms of timeless style.

5. Glass Mosaic Bathroom Tiles

Mosaic tiles have become extremely popular in bathrooms. Ceramic, granite, and glass are only a few of the tiling materials that can be used. The tiles are small and can be pieced together to produce interesting effects and designs in a variety of colors and patterns. Mosaic tiles are the perfect way to inject your own style into the space, whether you use them for your bathroom floor, to highlight a specific wall, or to create a unique look across the entire room.

6. Limestone Tiles for Bathroom

Limestone is a great material to use in natural-toned design schemes. Its gentle and comfortable texture, as well as its subtle shades of beige, brown, and grey, add warmth to your bathroom while remaining durable. Since limestone is a porous material in its natural state, it must be sealed extremely well before being used in bathrooms. It’s worth it, though, because this attractive and flexible material allows you to build a lovely warm bathroom.

7. Vinyl Tiles

Another choice for bathroom tiles is vinyl. It’s extremely functional because it’s low maintenance and can withstand a lot of violence. It’s also a very cost-effective option. Vinyl tiles will now look stunning in your bathroom, as their style has improved significantly in recent years, and there is an infinite number of colors and designs to fit any taste. Vinyl can also effectively imitate the appearance of wood or stone, allowing you to do a lot more for a lot less if you’re on a budget.

8. Pebble Bathroom Tiles

People who want to make natural effects in their bathrooms love pebble tiles, also known as river rock tiles. They add appeal and texture to your design and are ideal for a coastal or holiday theme. Pebble tiles are made up of individual pebbles that are kept together by grout. Their distinctive and highly decorative appearance can be retained for several years if properly maintained and cleaned.

9. Glossy Bathroom Tiles

Glass is one of the most customizable tiling products, making it easy to imbue your bathroom with your unique personality. Glossy tiles reflect light around your bathroom exceptionally well, creating a bright and spacious feel. Available in a wide variety of colors and shades, from bold to subtle, glass tiles reflect light around your bathroom exceptionally well, creating a bright and spacious feel. Glass is also an excellent choice for bathroom tiles because it is naturally water-resistant, low-maintenance, and stain-resistant.

It is not every day that you plan and decide to upgrade, renovate or redesign your bathroom. So, it is very important that whenever you plan to commence the process, you put the right foot forward. The aforementioned tiles bring a very unique flavor to your space in their own ways. It all comes down to your personal choice and your personal likings.
