Lightbulb Std 8x8 Vs Std 12x12

Greenpark's Standard Bathroom Tiles Is 8x8 (Ceramic Glossy), Or We Can Use The Standard Main Floor Tiles 12x12 (Ceramic Non-Glossy) In The Bathroom But We Have To Pay An Upgrade Fee For That. Do You Think 8x8 Glossy Tiles Would Look Cheap?

Opinions Appreicated!

I like larger tiles. But depending on the look you are going for, glossy can make it look really nice.

Both The Floor & Wall.

I've Seen Some Homes W/ Glossy Tiles In The Bathroom, They Make The Bathroom Look Cheap, Even Worse With The 8x8 Size.

Our Greenpark had, I don't know what size tiles, but they were the same on the shower wall and the floor. I never measured them, but they were rectangular and maybe 6" x 8" or so, and I hated them, despised them to be exact. I think the previous owner chose the shower tiles for the floor or something, but I would go with 12" x 12" tiles. They chipped fairly easily too.

not a fan of shiny tiles at all. Prefer ones with texture and matt finish
