Choosing bathroom tiles

Bathroom tiles tips Suggestions

1.

Choose your Tiles carefully, it is also very important to get the correct type of tile to ensure the water proof ability of the tile.

 

2.

For wet areas such as showers and wet rooms it is essential to tile onto an already water resistant background. Sand/cement render, dense concrete or water resistant tile backer board are ideal backgrounds. Plaster, plasterboard, timber and timber-based products such as MDF or plywood are absorbent and should be made waterproof by the use of a waterproofing or tanking system. Failure to do this is currently the most common cause of tiling failures in domestic bathrooms.

 

3.

Don’t be afraid to be bold. If, as in most homes, your bathroom is small then nothing will make it look big. Make a statement; why not use the smallest room to express yourself. You could go for opulent luxury, off the wall trendy, something to make you smile or stark minimalism.

 

4

It wasn’t so long ago that tiling to suspended wooden floors was impractical as well as inadvisable and as such this ruled out most bathrooms. With modern adhesive technology the vast majority of wooden floors can be tiled.

 

5.

The latest trend is for very large tiles and they are particularly suitable for large bathrooms or en-suites where you can carry the tiling through into the bedroom. Large tiles are heavy so do check your walls are suitable.

 

6.

Tiles can add value to your home so be prepared to spend time and money. For a luxury style with a modest price tag choose plain white wall tiles and add stunning eye-catching borders or mosaics.

 

7.

Make sure floor tiles are suitably slip resistant for bare feet in wet conditions.

 

8.

Underfloor heating will add luxury at a surprisingly small cost. It adds little to the thickness of the floor tiling, thus it can be installed in most cases with the added benefit of freeing up valuable wall space.

 

9.

If you are tiling yourself we advise to buy or hire the best equipment as it will save time and money.

 

10.

The best tip of all. Before you start; work out how long it will take you (about three times as long as a professional), how much per hour you earn and how much your house is worth then consider employing a professional.
