SOME DESIGN TIPS
Although this portion of the wall might be constantly covered with the shower curtain or enclosure, it’s still important to have a tile design in your shower surround that complements the rest of your bathroom design, yet holds up to the wear and tear that comes with daily showering.
KEEP IN MIND THESE THINGS:
- Many tiles in shower surrounds are simply patterned or solid tiles. Choose the one that best fits your bathroom.
- When considering more complex designs, keep your shower size in mind: An intricate tile pattern may be hard to execute if you don’t have enough space to allow the pattern adequate repetition.
- Consider how much time you’d like to put into maintaining the tile in your shower surround. The smaller the tile you choose, the more grout and maintenance will be required.
