Choosing a tile to work with natural light

If your bathroom is dark with minimum or no natural light coming in, use lighter coloured tiles – they’re more reflective and will brighten the space.
On the other hand, if your bathroom gets a lot of natural light, particularly direct sunlight, high-gloss tiles may be too reflective and create glare. A semi-gloss or satin would be a better alternative in this case.

TIP: In small bathrooms, try using tiles of the same colour on the wall and floor. This will help to create a more spacious feel.

Choosing the right colour and finish for your tile

There are many tiles available that look amazing in their own right, but if the style, colour and finish don’t complement the style of your bathroom and fittings, they will very quickly lose their appeal.

Also be mindful of how well the tile is going to date. If it’s longevity you’re after, then sticking to neutral colours or natural stone will do the trick. You can always accessorise with the latest trends and colours to keep it looking up-to-date.
