Installing Bathroom Tile

Updated on November 24, 2010

Bathroom Tile Installation Overview

While it may take some time to do, remodeling your bathroom can have a very positive effect on your entire home. And countless homeowners have found that by installing bathroom tile they have been able to create a rejuvenated atmosphere, both elevating the aesthetics of your bathroom as well the value. Here is a quick overview of what to expect from this process and what some of the benefits are.

For one thing, style point where all too many homeowners tend to fail to recognize is the importance of creating an even flow throughout your home through the use of interior design elements. This includes making sure that each of your rooms features some common design elements that all combine to create a cohesive and complementary theme.

Pursuing a complementary theme is easiest to accomplish with your bathroom tiles by paying careful attention to the patterns and colors of the tiles. However, you can feel free to stray a bit from the theme established in the rest of your home as long as you maintain some commonalities. And this is also an excellent opportunity to get very creative. There are a lot of different types of tiles that extend well beyond traditional ceramic, so make sure you put a significant amount of time into researching your options for bathroom tile to make sure that you have found a unique type of tile that will satisfy your inner interior designer. For example, there are some divine options for glass and rare stone bathroom tiles that have the ability to instantly transform your bathroom.

Next, you will want to take a careful consideration of the condition of the current wall or floor tile. If it is fairly old, warped, cracked or recently damaged by water, then it will be a good idea for you to completely remove it. But be careful not to dent or puncture the bottom surface as you will need to make sure that there is a proper moisture barrier below before installing bathroom tile on top of it.

And while you can rent a wet saw to cut your bathroom tile, you can also look for precut bathroom tile sets that will prevent you from having to do so. You can also find several types of hardy back that provide a quick and convenient surface on which to adhere the tiles. You will then need to lay grout between the tiles to insure a completely sealed surface. You can also look into faux tile boards that provide a tack and go solution.
