When renovating your bathroom, you want it to look its best. Matching the tiles to the countertops is one of the most aesthetic things you can do with your bathroom.
Having a color theme can make your bathroom soothing and inviting all at once. If your counters match your floor and the cabinets and walls provide a secondary color, you can achieve the perfect balance of color harmony and aesthetic pleasure in your bathroom.
Whatever your final decision, there are many ways to match counters and floors. You can match the color between them, or you can provide the same or similar patterns, or you could choose a complementing mosaic or even use the same tiles. There are so many options that you can hardly go wrong in designing your perfect bathroom.
Match the Color
If you have the perfect color scheme in mind but aren’t fussy about materials, you can choose to duplicate only the color when matching tiles to your countertops. For instance, if you have quartz countertops but want ceramic floor tiles, you can choose to purchase ones with similar hues.
It’s also possible to buy different materials with the same shade of your preferred color. That might mean the floor will feel smoother or grainier or slicker than the countertop. But if you don’t mind different textures, then having the same color for your counters and floor will be the perfect addition for your bathroom.
When matching tiles to your countertops, they don’t have to be exactly the same. Therefore, you can choose to pick and match between samples that are similar or help accentuate the other. If your floor tiles and countertops have a similar but non-identical pattern, it can make your bathroom look very put together while still being unique.
Patterns that highlight one another include similar images where one pattern is larger than the other. Larger patterns with the same or similar styles can help bring out the detail of smaller patterns.
One popular idea is to coat both your countertop and floor with mosaic tiles. These tiles are small and usually colorful additions that can make your bathroom feel like a sauna or spa. Putting in the small tiles of a mosaic can take a lot more time and energy, but the resulting look leaves a satisfied occupant.
Mosaic tiles can also provide patterns within the general layout. If, for instance, you have red tiles covering your floor and counter, you could put in a band of pink mosaic tiles in a strategic place through both your floor and counter. These different creative options make matching tiles to your countertops more enjoyable and more aesthetically pleasing once finished.
Of course, you can choose to use the same tiles to coat both your floor and counter space. Usually, the tiles used for both are smaller than normal floor tiles to accommodate the size and shape of the counter. However, they are not as small as mosaic tiles.
Using the same tiles makes all other choices easy. You have the same color, the same pattern, and the same size tiles for both floor and counter. If you most desire an easily accomplished matching floor and counter, the same tile is the way to go.
Not everyone has tile on their bathroom floor, and that’s perfectly acceptable. If you cover your floor in laminate, it’s easy to use the leftovers on your counters for a great match. The same is true for other materials.
Some homes chose to place quartz on their floors to get that same marbled look as on their counters. If you don’t want to break your budget, quartz-printed laminate is also available for use on either a counter or floor. It’s also possible to buy stone slabs for bathroom construction. They fit across your floor and over your counter space for a warm, rustic feel and aren’t too bulky to accommodate for mirrors or sinks.
Pairing your bathroom countertop with your floor can bring new life into your bathroom. There are numerous ways you can match your tiles to your counter, with plenty of options for creativity. Whether you choose to match the color only or use a similar pattern, or even the same tiles, there are countless ways to connect these two effects.
