The latest in high-tech bathroom tile designs.
A new study finds that the average American household uses around 2,000 square feet of bathroom tile each year, and many homeowners also install the tile on their kitchen, living room and bathroom cabinets.
The study, conducted by the company B&G Architecture, examined more than 100 million tile samples to see which bathroom tiles to use.
The study found that the majority of Americans choose tile that’s 3.5 inches (8 centimeters) wide and 1 inch (4 centimeters) deep, while many other tile options were only half as deep or less.
The researchers also found that many Americans also use low-quality, inexpensive tiles that were either too coarse or too finely textured to be attractive.
One of the key findings was that American bathroom tiles were generally made from materials that were both expensive and difficult to work with.
“This is an area where we need to be very careful,” said James DeLuca, the executive vice president of B&G Architecture.
“The results of this study show that Americans’ purchasing decisions are very much influenced by their personal tastes.”
To find the most common tile choices, the study used the Consumer Reports’ 2018 “100 Best” list.
According to the study, people tend to choose tile made from ceramic or steel, which are both harder and more expensive to work.
People also often choose low-level tile with a thin, light or shiny finish, or a white background.
But, as the study found, a majority of American homeowners also use high-quality ceramic tile.
To help Americans make the most of the new bathroom tiles, the company is now working on a high-definition, 4K version of its new tiles.
