Basic Tips On Laying Bathroom Tiles

Posted on January 20, 2019

Are your bathroom tiles looking a bit drab, worn down, or…well, just icky? If you haven’t changed them out in years, it may be time to do so soon. You may also be designing a bathroom from scratch, in which case you definitely need to look into some new options in bathroom tiles. The good news is that there are literally hundreds of options in bathroom tiles out there, so you definitely won’t be lacking in options. However, all these choices can leave you fairly bewildered, especially if this is your first time out to do a bathroom makeover.

If you don’t have a lot of experience and you aren’t fully confident that you know what you are doing, it might be a good idea to get some advice from someone in the know. Tile suppliers will do a lot more than just sell you bathroom tiles, and you might be surprised at how willing they are to provide valuable information to newbies such as yourself. For concerns such as the proper adhesives to use, tile profiles, matting, and waterproofing solutions that will ensure the long life of your tiles, suppliers can be very helpful.

The areas of your bathroom that get wet frequently will require some special attention. Before you install tiles in these areas, you have to make sure that the surface you mount them on is itself water resistant. Installing bathroom tiles onto a non-water-resistant surface is a recipe for failure, and you will eventually see your tiles coming loose. This will not only result in added repair costs later on, but will pose a safety risk as well.

Don’t be afraid to exercise some creativity when choosing your tiles. There really isn’t any good reason to stick to the tired old white tiles when there are so many colorful and textured options around.
