A bathroom with beautiful gloss tiles that don't dull over time is something every homeowner dreams of. But to achieve this, it's important to choose the right materials. We'll show you some of the best options in this article.
 

The bathroom is one of the most personal and private rooms in the house. Though it might not seem like it, we spend a lot of time between those four walls – washing, putting on makeup, and getting ready for the day ahead.

When it comes to the decor and style, it can sometimes seem like the bathroom is one place in the house where you can’t show off your own personal taste. But this doesn’t have to be the case. Finding the perfect gloss tiles and materials is much easier than you might think.

In this article, we’ll tell you everything you need to know about gloss tiles and materials. The furniture, mirrors, and all the other bathroom essentials you choose for your bathroom are entirely up to you.

But let’s start at the beginning. If you want to renovate your bathroom, or you’ve just bought a new house and want to start redecorating from scratch, the first thing you need to do is choose the right materials.

Here is a selection of some of the most popular and fashionable gloss tiles and materials on the market today. With these high-quality items, your bathroom will never lose its shine.

Marble bathrooms

Marble never goes out of style and continues to be the material of choice when it comes to designing modern bathrooms. However, if they’re not well looked after, a thin layer of old wax can start to develop on marble surfaces over time, giving the material a dull and yellowish appearance.

A little soap and water are all you need to keep marble clean, and your bathroom looking bright and glossy. We recommend removing any stains as soon as they appear, using a sponge or brush to clean the surface thoroughly.

On a daily basis, you can simply use a cotton cloth to wipe away any dust that may have gathered, but if you want to give your marble a little TLC, you can also treat it with wax from time to time.

If you want to create a more natural bathroom look, try combining marble with wooden elements.

Granite bathrooms

We can’t talk about gloss tiles and materials without talking about granite. When it comes to kitchens and bathrooms, it really is the ideal material, as it’s completely stain-resistant.

There are so many advantages to this material. Firstly, granite is non-porous, so water simply rolls right off it without being absorbed. As such, it doesn’t get damaged easily, and barely ages over time.

 

Granite is also well-known for its great durability, which means your furniture will last for years to come. It also has a very elegant finish, giving your bathroom a simple yet refined appearance.

In terms of cleaning, the best way to maintain and polish granite is to clean it with water and pH-neutral soap, using a sponge that won’t scratch the surface. You can then use a microfiber cloth to dry it carefully.

Gloss tiles and ceramics

If neither of the materials we’ve looked at so far has taken your fancy, there are some final options that might interest you – gloss tiles and ceramics.

Tiles are the perfect way to create a bright, glossy bathroom. If you choose metro-style gloss tiles and light colors, you’ll be able to make your bathroom look light and spacious. Another popular option today is to use large ceramic tiles with relief patterns and designs.

The combination of these designs and the brightness of the ceramics creates changes in the light and shadows and makes the walls seem further away than they really are.
