What to Consider When Purchasing New Tile for Showers

Source: Conestoga Tile

While choosing the right tile for your shower may seem as simple as deciding on a color or pattern to match your decor, there are a few more factors to consider. Here, detailed below, are a few of the other deciding factors when selecting shower tile:

Use Various Textures – While smooth tile may be ideal for the walls and seats of a shower, textured tiles are needed on the floor for the sake of safety.

Stay Small When Curves are Involved – Edges are always problematic for a tile surface, and curves just exacerbate the situation. Smaller tiles allow for greater control when cutting and installing, and they should always be considered for any curved tile installation.

Consider Maintenance – Larger tiles are easier to clean and maintain. In addition, they are more hygienic by creating less space for mold and mildew to accumulate.
