How to choose your bathroom tiles
Choosing bathroom tiles is a simple task if you know how. One essential aspect is to pay attention to the quality of the materials and choose pieces that can resist the humidity of the bath and shower areas. Not all finishes can withstand these conditions and can affect the appearance of the tile over time.
One of the most critical aspects when choosing bathroom tiles is, for safety, high slip resistance. Shower floors should have a non-slip surface that provides safety against potential slipping. In addition, it is important to choose tiles that are easy to clean and disinfect, an essential quality for this room, which usually accumulates humidity.
