Bathroom Tile Installation – Tips For Success

Bathroom tile installation is a major upgrade to any bathroom. Many homeowners handle this job alone. It really is not difficult as long as you learn about the tricks that you must get right. For example, think about these below-mentioned tricks to install bathroom tile floor.

A solid foundation.

The floor tiles can be installed on all types of surfaces. But one important thing for good installation is stability. Often bathroom floors have some water damage and are a little bit spongy. There is one sure way to have a solid floor and that is to use cement board as an underlayment for your floor. Be sure to learn about the cement board. You can also get help from professional tiling companies like Gun Tiling Perth for quality tile installation.

Starting at the right place.

The bathroom is often a smaller room. You will cut the tiles to fit at least two walls. Make sure you start in the centre or at one of the walls so the cut tiles are least visible. Nothing looks worse than tile grout lines that are running off at an angle from a wall right in plain sight!

Plumbing done right

The toilet will have to come up for floor installation. Make sure you're ready to reset the toilet. Have all the hardware on hand. Be sure the mounting bolts are long enough for the new toilet height.

Grout is the key.

Grout isn't waterproof. Water slowly seeps through regular masonry grout. So it's a good idea to keep bathroom tile grout well sealed. Also, consider using an epoxy grout in a bathroom tile installation. This grout solves the grout leaking problem. But epoxy is highly toxic and not safe to breathe. Get a good mask.
