There are certain rooms in your home that seem like the walls are closing in on you every time you walk into them. Every time you turn around, it feels as though you’re bumping into a corner even if the corner is nowhere near you. Why can even a semi-spacious area feel so small? Believe it or not, one of the problems may be with the color scheme and the flooring that you’ve chosen! Open up the space with big, bold and beautiful mosaic tiles. Here’s how you can make your bathroom feel more roomy with the help of mosaic tiles.
Beyond the Kitchen
When you think of mosaic tiles, you may think of fun designs that you can add behind your stove to showcase a specific element or design. But you would be making a mistake if you ignored the many applications for your bathrooms! Since bathrooms are a smaller space, you can afford to create a real statement by finding tiles that call attention to a specific wall or feature of the room. When you draw the eye away from perceived flaws, they’re adding personality without a huge investment.
Beauty of Tile
Whether you’re hanging mosaic tiles on the walls or installing them on the floor or in your shower, this durable covering will stand up well to the high moisture content of your bathroom. Consider using your design chops to highlight a section of flooring and set it off from the rest through creative application of different styles of tile. For example, you could create a faux rug by placing mosaic tiles in a square pattern, perhaps creating an island for your bath tub.
Expand Your Horizons
One of the great applications for mosaic tiles is making your rooms look larger. Interior designers know that by repeating a specific design, your eyes are tricked into thinking there is more space available than there really is. Especially in small rooms like a bathroom, mosaic tiles with bold yet simple designs will help expand the space and give the illusion of a great deal more room than is truly available. And the best thing? You can do it without breaking the bank.
Keep Your Lines Clean
A neutral-colored grout helps keep the eye moving consistently and makes the room look bigger, and it compliments even the craziest shades of mosaic tiles. Maintaining a clean line from the floor through to the shower, and even possibly up the walls, will keep from breaking the lines, which can really impact the perceived size of your bathroom.
