Bathroom wall tiles designs can vary according to your own style preference or bathroom size. These can range anywhere from the small honeycomb looking tiles to the more common smaller or larger square style tiles.

Bathroom floor tile design options are almost as vast as their wall counterparts. Bathroom floor tiles have virtually just as many options and styles as the bathroom wall tiles.

The main reason for tiling a shower or bathtub bottom besides appearance is if you have an irregular sized tub or shower, something a standard insert will not fit into. If this is the case, then it may be more cost efficient to tile your tub or shower. The drawbacks to tiling a tub or shower floor is if it leaks, you will have to seal it more often. The worst drawback in my opinion is it can be freezing cold until the tile warms up; which generally happens right about the time the shower is over.
