    Types of Tiles
  1. Ceramic: Most commonly used, and easy to maintain. They come in gloss and matt finishes as well as ceramic porcelain-backed. Available in different patterns and colors, and in various sizes. Some recent designs show embossed tiles in myriad textures and available in different shapes, colors, and sizes.
    Ceramic bathroom tiles cover the walls and basin, adding a sleek, contemporary touch. Note the shelf holding frames and decorative items like elephant statues. They show up well against the white contrasting background.
  2. Homogenous: These tiles are easy to maintain. Their homogenous nature means the edge or thickness is in the same color. Almost scratch-resistant, they come in matt or polished finishes. Prices tend to be higher for polished finishes.
  3. Granite: Durable and toughest among the different types of tiles. Almost scratch-resistant, it comes with a consistent tone. Designers and architects usually choose dark or dull-tone tiles for commercial premises. The most affordable ones come from China.
  4. Other Stones: Limestone and sandstone are beautiful, but they are porous and prone to stains as they are difficult to maintain. Most commonly featured in tropical- or resort-inspired interiors.
  5. Ceramic and Glass-mosaics: These can complement retro-inspired interiors and are easy to maintain. They are also available in primary and secondary colors. Be it square or hexagonal, they bring dazzling eye candy, especially for curved surfaces. They’re also the best choice for steps, hard angles and curbs as there are no sharp edges that can cause injuries.
    The bathtub below is given the royal treatment with gold mosaics covering all curved surfaces. This is complemented with gilded faucets and handrail while the floor is in sanded marble.
  6. Stainless Steel Mosaics: New and still relatively uncommon in the market, they are suitable for very modern and stark interiors. Other than square, shapes include hexagon and diamond. Finishes come in stainless steel hairline, stainless steel mirror, stainless steel etched or gold color.

Taps Shower and basin Style for bathroom.

A large variety of bathroom taps are available for showers, bathtubs and bathroom sinks. Within these types, consumers can find hundreds of different styles made from several different types of materials. Choosing the right style can make all the difference and truly complete the look of a well-decorated bathroom.

    Taps Some of the more popular materials for bathroom taps include stainless steel, chrome, brass, nickel-plated and other plated-metals. Some taps are available in several different materials. You may also find variations in the material such as ornamentation using glass, or a brushed or polished finish.
  1. Monobloc Basin Taps Monobloc style tap similar to bath deck filler, the monobloc basin style uses a mixer for hot and cold water. Again, a single spout is framed by two handles or knobs. However, unlike the bath deck filler, the monobloc style does not utilize a "deck" for the knobs. Instead, this style features handles attached to the base of the spout on the spout itself.
  2. Three-Hole Basin Mixer The biggest difference between the bathroom deck filler styles and monobloc basin types when compared to the three-hole basin mixer is the separation of the spout and the two handles. Using a mixer, two separate handles control hot and cold water function through a single spout, with each handle and the spout installed in separate holes in the sink.
  3. Three-Hole Bath Filler Similar to the three-hole basin mixer, the three-hole bath filler has the same characteristics. When mounted onto the bathtub, this style of tap has three separate parts, utilizing a mixer, a single spout and two handles.
  4. Bathroom Shower The first thing while designing the bathroom that you need to consider, is the size of the shower. The shower can be basically of three sizes, which of course would be small, medium and large. The budget required for all the three types of showers goes on increasing according to the size of the shower. All the three types of showers can be made equally charming and welcoming using a bunch of innovative and creative ideas. All the three types of bathroom shower designs have an equal amount of merit on their own

Bathroom Wash Basin

With so many new developments in bathroom wash basin design, here’re some styles for the design-conscious to consider for bathroom interior design :
countertop basins were in fashion a few years back and used to take the shape of a salad bowl. It was simply placed on top of the counter (hence the name). They come in materials like ceramic, glass and stainless steel. Ceramic is easiest to maintain compared to glass and stainless steel. The porcelain basin below is made to be placed on a piece of bathroom furniture or similar surface. The examples on the left and right below are in stone and marble respectively
Check also if the basins come with tap holes. For basins without tap holes, you’ll need a taller mixer with a longer sprout because of the extra height and setback. To be safe, you can go for a tap concealed in the wall, whose height is adjustable. The example above shows how two kitchen sinks have been turned into bathroom wash basins.
