Choosing Wall and Floor Tiles for Your Bathroom

Over recent times, a beautiful bathroom has become a focal point for both homes and businesses throughout Australia. Even the master ensuite, which is typically only seen by the homeowner, is given thoughtful consideration. 

Knowing which tiles to choose, and the pattern you elect to lay them, will have a huge impact on how successful the final result is.

When done well, a great bathroom is not only enjoyable but adds significant value to your property.

Tips For Choosing The Perfect Bathroom Tiles

So how do you know which tiles and grout to choose for your house or business?  As part of our professional service, we can help you choose the right tile for your space and offer advice when needed.

When selecting tiles, we recommend taking into account:

Your Style And The Style Of Your Home

A great bathroom should complement the home decor around it. For instance, if your home has a neutral palette, consider keeping the tiles in neutral shades. You can always play with tile shape and layout to create interest and add colour through accessories. 

Have a more quirky, bold style? Inject colour into your bathroom and play with layout and shapes for maximum impact. For heritage homes, such as those in the Spring Hill area of Brisbane City, you may wish to keep your style in line with the history of the home and the local area.

Look Ahead

As experienced bathroom tilers in Brisbane, we’ll always advise you to consider how your chosen bathroom style and colour choices will age over time. Bathroom tiling services and renovations represent a big investment, so you want it to age well and be something you enjoy long after a trend has come and gone. 

Tile Size vs Room Size

It’s important to choose tiles that complement the room size and not overwhelm or underwhelm it. Generally, the smaller the space the smaller the tiles you should use. A combination of larger wall tiles and smaller floor tiles can also work to balance the space and create the illusion of a larger area. 

For small spaces, choose lighter coloured tiles to make the bathroom feel more open. In larger bathrooms, you can go with darker colours as the size of the space will accommodate them. 

Different Textures

Texture can be a wonderful way to introduce a focal point and warmth into your bathroom. Keep in mind though, textured tiles lack the practicality of smoother finishes when it comes to ease of cleaning. 

Dust can also cling to textured tiles such as natural stone and be challenging to clean properly. Left to linger, your bathroom can quickly lose its’ “like-new” appeal. This is particularly true in shower stalls where soap scum is present and limescale is more likely to occur. 

Mosaic tile texture Brisbane


Your chosen bathroom tiler in Brisbane will be able to present assorted layouts that will work with your space and preferred tile. Common layout patterns include subway, herringbone, brick, chevron and basket weave.  

The layout you will be able to use is also largely determined by the shape of your tiles. If you are feeling unsure, simply talk with one of our friendly bathroom tilers in Brisbane who are always more than happy to help. 

Patterns And Colour

Just as with shape, the pattern or colour variation you choose may determine how your tiles need to be laid out. Some tiles will have a continued pattern that requires matching, others will be styled as a mix. A love of patterns or bold colours can be very individual so choose carefully, particularly if you intend to sell your property in the future. 

The Lighting

Does your bathroom utilise natural light from exterior windows, or does it rely on overhead or wall lights? If your bathroom is lacking in sunlight, try to bring in brighter tones and colours as this will help reflect light around the space. This will make it feel larger and minimise the need to use overhead lighting during the day. 

For bright bathrooms with an abundance of natural light, you may like to play with darker tones and colours to help ground the space and make it feel more welcoming. Also consider using matte or less glossy finishes, as shine can be overwhelming in a bright space.

If in doubt, your chosen bathroom tiler in Brisbane can help you determine the best colour and finish for your bathroom

Preparing Your Bathroom for Tiling

Whether you are undergoing a bathroom renovation or installing one in a new building, preparation will always be the most important step. Tiling and waterproofing go hand in hand and are key to delivering a great job that will last for many years. The best bathroom tilers in Brisbane will also oversee this for you.  

Failure to properly waterproof your bathroom prior to tiling is not only in conflict with the QLD regulations set out by the Queensland Building and Construction Commission, QBCC, but can cause significant water damage to the foundations of your property. 

At Avid Tiling, not only do we offer professional tiling of exceptionally high standards but also licensed waterproofing services, making us the ideal bathroom tiler in Brisbane for your project.  

Tiling and waterproofing go hand in hand and are key to delivering a great job that will last for many years.

Finding The Right Bathroom Tiler In Brisbane QLD

Choosing the right bathroom tiler in Brisbane requires careful research – checking license details and previous customer reviews is something we highly recommend. Before engaging a tiler for your tiling job, we suggest: 

  • Securing free quotes which outline all costs and estimated timeframe for completion of the work. Ensure this includes details like grouting and leaving the job site clean and tidy once done.
  • Request photos of past tiling jobs that have been completed near you.
  • Seek out reviews online or from friends/acquaintances who have had recent tiling done.
  • Enquire about their experience and licensing for waterproofing. Should they not hold this qualification you will need an additional tradesperson on-site before tiling can be started.

In Brisbane and wider QLD these licenses are regulated by the QBCC. 

Other Considerations

You will need to feel comfortable that your tiler has the time to manage your project. And, importantly, that they seem committed and invested in working with you to deliver a top class finished product. 

At Avid Tiling, one of our goals when working with clients is ensuring a collaborative, stress-free experience through open communication. Part of offering an outcome of the highest quality is ensuring amazing customer service throughout.

Frequently Asked Questions

There is no average cost. Most tiling companies work on a square metre rate, but this can vary depending upon the job. For more information on costs please contact us to arrange an obligation free quote.

Waterproofing is required wherever there is a water outlet. This is typically the shower, bath, taps and drain areas.

The shower recess requires waterproofing to a height of no less than 1800mm. There needs to be at least 100mm of waterproofing above the shower head location.

A good tile for shower floors should be slip-resistant, watertight and sized appropriately for the space and slope of the shower floor. Anti-slip coatings can be applied after installation if required.

Pretty much any type of tile can be used for shower walls. Glazed tiles or porcelain tiles are most commonly used. Running the tile floor to ceiling adds a high-end touch to your shower enclosure.
