Tips For Choosing Shower Tile

When starting a bathroom renovation project, nothing stands out more than beautifully designed tile. Whether you are using tile for your bathroom floors, shower, or even walls, natural stone tile and home bathrooms just blend together well. However, it’s important that you are choosing the right tile for your specific space!

At GMS Werks, we have worked on a number of bathroom shower tile projects, transforming our customers' bathrooms into the space of their dreams. We understand what tile is best for bathroom showers, and want to share some tips to help you make an easier decision for your next project!

Determine your budget

First and foremost, before starting a new home project, you should always determine a set budget. This is really important for any home renovation project, as it helps your cross options off the list right away! Tile comes in a variety of different colors, styles and shapes, all of which reflect the price. When it comes to shower tile, natural stone is usually one of the more expensive options. Make sure to talk with a tile expert to get an idea of prices and which tile is going to make the most out of your investment!

Consider the tile size

Another thing you must consider is the size of tile that you want in your shower. For showers, homeowners usually choose smaller tiles, usually four inches by four inches or smaller. This is mainly because smaller tile sizes are easier to install in spaces like a shower, however, bigger tiles are still an option. 

Consider the color

Once you’ve locked in what size of tile you want, you will then need to determine the color and design style you are wanting! At GMS Werks, we have a large selection of bathroom shower tiles! For showers, homeowners tend to choose light colored tiles, as well as tiles that have some sort of design style to it. Consider the colors of your countertops, cabinetry, walls and other bathroom features to try and keep a consistent theme and style!

Keep maintenance in mind

Another thing to consider is the maintenance that will be required. Some tiles are easier to take care of and keep in good shape than others. Working with a tile company will give you a good idea of what tiles you should avoid using in your shower. Non-porous tile is much easier to take good care of than porous tile that can become damaged by water. Always keep maintenance and upkeep in mind!

Choose natural stone!

Natural stone tile is one of the best quality tiles you can use in your shower! It’s easy to care for, affordable, available in many sizes and colors, and overall will give your bathroom the new look it needs! Think natural stone for your next bathroom shower tile!
