(Peak at some fun bathroom backsplash tile here).  On your bathroom floor however, you’ll want a tile graded to withstand foot traffic and one that’s not too slippery.  Your shower floor is yet another area where texture is a crucial factor; a stone tile or one with a raised pattern will increase friction and prevent falls.  See some ideas on tile specific to showers here.  Tile is a product you need to “touch and feel” to get the full scope of how it will be best for your space.

4. Consider the Design Factor:

Now you’re ready to shop!  With these five tips in mind, you should be able to find a starting point to make your search for bathroom tile just a little bit simpler (& hopefully fun!).
