Choosing Matte or Gloss bathroom tiles for your home


A bathroom is the perfect place to relax and unwind after a long, hard day. It’s your personal space where you can get away from the world for some time. But if it doesn’t feel like an escape, then what’s the point? You don’t want your bathroom to be just another room in your house that looks like every other one. Bathrooms are unique spaces that deserve their own personality. The question remains, do I want a matte finish for my bathroom?

1. What are the benefits of using a matte finish for my bathroom

Having a matte finish for your bathroom is the perfect way to update your design without committing to an expensive remodel. Your new matte tiles can update your bathroom in seconds! Many people use glossy tiles because they are easier to clean, but this type of finish takes away from the natural beauty of natural stone, marble, and porcelain. A matte finish is also more durable than glossy. This is because the grout lines won’t show as much with a matte finish, so you’ll still be able to maintain that new look for years to come.

2. Pros and Cons 

Both have their pros and cons, so it’s important that you know what you’re looking for before making a final decision. The pros of matte finishes in your bathroom is that they’re generally easier to maintain. This is because matrices tend to be more water resistant and less prone to scuffs, scratches, and other kinds of damage thanks to the lack of a gloss. Matte finishes also tend to work better for people with allergies or sensitivities because there’s less buildup of mold and mildew.

The cons of matte finishes in your bathroom, however, is that they usually come with a higher price tag than glossy tiles do. Furthermore, if you have children or pets at home, you may find that the tiles get stained more easily than their glossy counterparts would. Finally, one potential issue that may arise when using matte tiles is that due to their water-resistant nature, they could be too difficult to clean. If you have objects in your bathroom that are hard to reach, it may be a good idea to use a glossy finish instead.

Glossy or Matt?

The decision to use glossy or matt finishes for your bathroom tiles is not one that should be taken lightly. When it comes to bathroom tile ideas, there are many different styles and finishes to choose from. For the most part, the decision between glossy or matte finishes won’t make a huge difference in regards to longevity and maintenance of tile design. But when you want to make a huge statement in your bathroom, matte finishes are the way to go. 


Ultimately, the decision to use matte or glossy finishes for your bathroom is one that should be made based on your budget and personal style. If you’re still struggling to decide what type of bathroom tiles you should use, or if you might be after something else, it’s best to go to a tile showroom and consult with their in house designers so they can give you better suggestions.
