Tiles within the Bathroom

Posted on June 1, 2019

When you remodel a bathroom, it is almost certain that you will use tiles in at least one area of the bathroom. There aren’t many bathrooms that have absolutely no tiles. Tiles are durable, versatile, and appealing options for bathrooms. They can be used on floors, walls, ceilings, counters, etc.

Tiles are available in different materials, sizes, shapes, designs, and textures. These are all very important things to consider when you make plans to remodel a bathroom. You can utilize all the aforementioned variables in countless different combinations in order to get the ideal look for your bathroom. These combinations can alter things like the perception of size to the overall atmosphere of your bathroom.

Before you make any plans to remodel a bathroom, you will need to make sure that the surface is prepared properly. Before installation, the surface should be completely level and there should be absolutely no moisture. If not prepared properly, the quality and appearance may look shoddy..

One thing you should know is that you should never apply tiles over your wallpaper. If you do this, then your tiles will be held in place only by thin wallpaper glue. You can, however tile over older tiles so long as they are kept in good shape.  To help make the surface of older tiles more viable, rub the surface with silicon carbide sheets of paper to provide a good surface for the adhesive.

Depending on the material of your tile, as well as other things, your tiles may only need to be cleaned with some water and mild cleaning solutions or you may have to seal it every so often. When you remodel a bathroom, you are doing more than just choosing aesthetics. Be sure to make bathroom remodeling plans that will fit around your lifestyle as well as your taste.
