If you want to use bathroom floor tile that is not slippery then you should be careful when you are purchasing them from the market. To get a non-slippery bathroom floor you may try to use unglazed ceramic tile, these have quite a rough texture, and so are better for wet areas. The only bad thing about these tiles is that they absorb far more oil which means they need to be cleaned more regularly. To create a dramatic look for your bathroom you should think about using white tiles with a colored grout.
