A bathroom remodel is a great way to add value to your home. And one of the most important aspects of any bathroom remodel is the tile work. Tiling can be a tricky business, but with our tips and tricks, you’ll be able to tile your bathroom like a pro in no time!
Choose your tiles.
This is perhaps the most important step in tiling your bathroom. You’ll want to make sure you choose tiles that are durable and easy to clean. But don’t sacrifice style for function — there are plenty of beautiful and practical tiles on the market. Talk to a professional at your local hardware store to find the perfect tiles for your space.
Prep the area.
Once you’ve chosen your tiles, it’s time to prep the area where you’ll be installing them. Remove any old tile or wallpaper, and make sure the surface is clean and level. If you’re not starting from scratch, you may need to apply a primer or sealant before proceeding.
Lay out your design.
This is where things can get really creative — it’s time to lay out your tile design! Experiment with different patterns until you find one you love. Just be sure to use spacers between each tile so that your grout lines are even.
Cut your tiles (if necessary).
If you’re working with pre-cut tiles, you can skip this step. But if you’re using larger tiles, you’ll need to cut them to fit around edges and corners. A wet saw is ideal for this job, but a handheld tile cutter will work in a pinch.
Apply adhesive and grout.
Once your tiles are laid out, it’s time to apply adhesive and grout. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions carefully — too much or too little adhesive can cause problems down the road. And when it comes to grout, don’t be afraid to get messy!
Let everything dry completely before using the shower or tub again (usually 24-48 hours). Give yourself a pat on the back — you did it! Your new bathroom tile looks amazing, and it was easier than you thought!
