Here are the most popular options for facing materials for the bathroom:

  • Mosaic - one of the most popular and expensive option. It can be made of glass, marble or tile. The product is suitable for the floor and walls;
  • Standard ceramic tile is a medium-sized facing material, up to 8 x 8 inches. It’s a very common option for bathrooms. Such tiles are easy to install, affordable, and any design can be implemented using medium-sized tiles.
  • Large tiles are used less frequently in bathrooms. The surface must be perfectly flat to set the tiles. If the bathroom is spacious, then a large tile will look very good. But it’s less suitable for smaller rooms;
  • Large decorative elements are a separate item because this kind of decor has dimensions of over 12 inches and looks like independent inserts.
