In NYC bathroom remodeling tiles are used for more than just something comfortable to step on. Tiles are durable, easy to clean, and serve as decoration for your bathroom. This is why it is important to plan your NYC bathroom remodeling carefully as any mistake you make with your tiles will not be easily hidden since they are stuck in place.
Be sure to choose design, color, and sizes properly and make sure all the tiles match or complement the rest of your bathroom. The following will be a few tips to ensure your tiles bring out the best in your bathroom.
When you start tiling the bathroom, be sure to do it in two halves. You do this to ensure that you will not step on the new surface until it is properly dried. Once dried you start on the other half.
Most people find broken tiles to be useless and throw them away without a second thought. More creative people take the broken pieces and form seemingly intricate mosaic patterns with them. This is not as hard as it seems.
Intact through drills
This is a good tip for those who want to attach fixtures but are afraid of cracking surrounding tiles. Before drilling, place duct tape around your mark and drill right through it. The tape will prevent any cracking.
Small fixture positions
Before drilling, use double-sided tape to see how the fixture will look in the spot you chose. Do this until you find the perfect position and then drill.
Find a good balance between the color of your tiles and the rest of your bathroom. Consider the color of certain fixtures and pick out colors that will complement that.
