Bathroom Flooring and Tiles 

Well, if you do want to impress the neighbours!
 
Flooring
 
Don't spend thousands on the tub & taps and skimp on the flooring. Your bathroom floor can set the tone for the whole space - lino in Swindon should be banned. Obviously, a nice bathroom needs a ceramic tile floor.
 
Ceramic tiles are more expensive than vinyl, but in a bathroom, the tile is a premium product and as such represents an impressive upgrade over any other floor. The only disadvantage is the cold feel, although it can help to cover a tile floor with rugs for safety reasons a well.
 
Another solution is to install a floor heating system. It's not as much as a luxury as you think as can seriously impress the neighbours in number 34.

Tiling
 
There really isn't much to say about tiling that can't be said by the experts. It absolutely makes a bathroom, but must be done properly. If you attempt it yourself be prepared, but we recommend you get a professional to do it for you.
 
Getting yourself in a match-stick, grouting mayhem must be avoided at all costs. The problem is that there really is so many to choose from and in so many varying colours and textures.
 
Hand-painted tiles can be expensive but you may only need a few in amongst a majority of cheaper, solid colour tiles, to look really good. Make sure the grouting or adhesive is good quality because the last thing you need is redoing the whole jobs in 6 months time!
 
The only thing to do is once you've decided on the colour of your suite to go hunting and to ask questions. Swindon has got a lot on offer tile wise with some very good expert advice to go with it.
