Where to Install, to install a wall mounted toilet paper holder, the National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA) advises installing 26" from the floor along a wall beside the toilet. Make sure the hardware you choose will fit in that space. Grab Bars for Toilets, Showers, and Bathtubs. The best grab bar is metal, although many substantial bars are made of plastic. Choose options that color-coordinate with your toilet and shower space if you are going with a plastic option. You can use the ADA (American Disabilities Act) guidelines for disabled individuals as a guide for your home bathroom to help determine where and how to install these aids. The size(s) you choose will depend on the measurements for installation in your home.
Typically when we start a bathroom renovation we have one tile that we dream of including in our design. Sometimes it is a really special or unique accent tile and sometimes it is as simple as knowing that you want white subway tile. Either way, take that dream tile and use it as the starting point for the other tile you will choose for your bathroom design. Taking your first (must have) choice as a starting point, use it to make the decisions for the other tiles you will include in your design. If your must have is a really unique color or pattern and is going to be the focal point of your design, pull more subtle colors from it to use in your accent tiles. If however your first choice is really plain (like a white subway tile) you may want to add an element of interest with a colorful accent tile or even a smaller scale white penny tile to change it up and add interest.
Large scale tiles are definitely on trend when it comes to bathroom floors right now. If you choose to go that direction, you can use the same tile cut in smaller sizes in a different area of the bathroom. For example if you use 12 x 24 tiles on the floor, you can use the same tile on the bathroom floor in 2 x 2s to continue the color across the entire floor, but creating a more slip free shower floor. For the kid's bathroom I wanted to go with something classic and something very light and airy. There are no windows in this bathroom so I wanted something that would bounce around as much light as possible. As soon as I saw this tumbled hexagon tile at The Tile Shop I knew we had to use it on the floor. This was my must have tile and would also act as the show stopper since it is a little bit unexpected and has a lot of pattern. I also knew that I wanted to do grey cabinets to keep with the color scheme of my home, so we ended up choosing a larger than normal scale (4 x 8) matte white subway tile for the shower surround. It comes in both a glossy and matte finish and after getting both samples we are going to go with the matte.
