The bathroom can be one of the most frequented rooms in your home. It will receive guests, but it can also be a private place where you find yourself decompressing in a hot bath. For these reasons, a bathroom deserves thoughtful planning for a design within your budget. Breaking the bank isn’t necessary. Consider using different materials, using the more expensive elements sparsely. Consider the use of different grout colors, and using different size tiles, for example, very large wood tiles in the shower, or a floor that is a combination of porcelain and stone. If you need a place to start, consider these basic points on popular tiling options and balance them against your needs.
