I have had so many clients come to me very confused by what to do with their small bathroom’s floor. Here is my advice for choosing a tile that works for your space.
DO go for a mosaic. It will give a smooth even effect to your floor. Plus- mosaic tends to be pricy so this is totally the right place to experiment with that hexagon nero marquina you love. The impact will be impressive without breaking the bank since you probably won’t need that much.
DON’T go for average 12x12 tiles. These are dead. Literally. All the tile stores are liquidating them. They will break up the floor with too many joints and make it look outdated.
DO go for a larger tile. Like a 12x24, 24x24 or even larger! Make sure you have at least two full visible tiles. A more uniform or lightly textured tile with a matching grout will give a seamless modern look.
DON’T line up the larger rectangular tiles. This will attract the eye to missing space. When you see two full rows and then a row of 1/2 tiles, it totally looks builder-basic. Switch it up with a staggered or brick pattern so you can’t determine where the tiles start or end.
DO try a fun hexagon or pattern tile as long as you stay under 8''x8''.

The Subway Tile
You are classic missy. Your go-to outfit is jeans with a white t-shirt because you just know it will work. It’s a safe choice, will never go out of style and is easy to dress up with a few accessories!
The Herringbone or Chevron
You have 26 Pinterest boards and one of them is DIY projects you will eventually get to. You get fresh flowers on the weekend and Starbucks on Sundays. Your friends love your place for being so trendy!
The Custom Order Mosaic
You are all about the details. Every inch of your backsplash was meticulously chosen and planned keeping in mind the rest of your kitchen and home. You waited for it for weeks but when it arrived, it was even better than you had imagined. Your party guests always ask where you got it and, with pride, you will answer with a story.
The 4x12 Tile
What it says about you? Probably not much since it came with your condo. But hey- it seems to have been working fine.
You love beautiful yet simple things. You probably own a few art pieces from up and coming artists. You might have chosen to extend your counter slab onto your backsplash or make a statement with a large expensive, fancy Calacatta vein. Either way, your investment was totally worth it.
The Marble Tile
You like to stay true to yourself. You know this, because before buying your backsplash, everyone tried to warn you about the staining that can happen with marble but you went with it anyway! (Yayy!) It looks gorgeous and will wear over time, just like your leather handbags.
