While popular large-format tiles are effective in hallways, kitchens and living areas they can create difficulties in
smaller areas such as bathrooms and laundries.
When designing with large tiles in a bathroom, the position of the floor waste is crucial and sometimes the introduction of a long drain is necessary due to the fall of the floor.
An alternate solution is to use a smaller format tile (going from perhaps a 600mm to a 300mm tile) in wet areas.
Bathrooms are also great areas of a house to introduce special wall and floor textures, perhaps through the use of
feature pebbles or mosaic tiles.
