Your Guide to Common Bathroom Tile Types

Glass TileAlthough there are quite a few different flooring options for a bathroom, tile is repeatedly chosen as the top choice.

With so many different bathroom tile types available on the market, it can be a challenge to narrow down your options and choose the best one for you. Consider durability, price, value and appearance when making the final decision between these common tile types:

Ceramic Tile

This is the most affordable and commonly chosen option in bathrooms. Whether you choose to use it for your bathroom floor, walls, shower or backsplash, ceramic tiles will look great and be easy to install. They come in a wide range of colors and designs.

Glass Tile

Although more expensive than ceramic, glass tiles can bring light and color to a bathroom. Small enclosures can also benefit from the spacious nature that glass tiles impart in a bathroom. Because of the higher price and smaller tiles, they are often used in smaller projects like around windows, on a shower wall or on the backsplash.

Natural Stone

While an expensive tile, natural stone tile like marble or granite can look stunning in an upscale bathroom and they are very durable as well.  Choose from mosaic patterns to large field tiles.
