  1. Know your budget before you start
  2. You can find tile in just about any shape, color, design, and style you want – and for just about any price. We recommend that before you start looking at your options, you first set a budget for yourself. This allows you to begin by looking at the type of tiles that are most likely to work in the long run. The last thing you want is to fall in love with a particular tile, only to find that it is well out of our price range. You will appreciate shopping for tile with Mission Tile West, because we do carry everything from great bargains to great luxury.

  3. Choose a color scheme that works for your bathroom
  4. Before you start looking for bathroom tile, we recommend choosing a color scheme for your bathroom. Think about what colors you want for your cabinets and vanity. Once you have chosen those, you can build a palette around and choose tile that works. Generally speaking, most people prefer lighter tiles throughout with perhaps a brighter or darker few tiles for contrast.

  5. Think about tile size
  6. It used to be that the most popular tile style was small and intricate, but today’s top styles are often much larger. A good rule of thumb is that the bigger the space you will be tiling, the bigger the tile should be.

  7. Bring all your ideas together
  8. Once you have an idea of your budget, color scheme, and size, you can start shopping in earnest. At Mission Tile West we offer individual tiles but we also offer design schemes that go beautifully together. For example, our Revival ‘60s is a great option for homes with a classic yet bold look. We have dozens of combinations and employ a design staff who can help you find the right options within your parameters.

  9. Buy the right amount of tile
  10. Now that you know what you want, you must decide how much tile to choose. If you are tiling your walls, you will want to tile to the ceiling. No matter what surface you are tiling, it is a good idea to assume that some tiles will be broken during installation.

You should not only buy extra tile to deal with this possibility, but for future use too. In fact, one of the best things about choosing tile is that if one tile becomes damaged, you can replace just that one spot.
