Outdated tile in the bathroom takes away from the appearance of the room, minimizing its appeal. No matter how nicely you have decorated your bathroom, dirty and broken tiles mar its attractiveness, eliminating the sense of relaxation that you should experience when you enter the room. Re-tiling the bathroom to create a lavish look is one of the top home remodeling projects you can tackle, bringing both the immediate reward of enhancing the attractiveness of the bathroom as well as the potential benefit of increasing the market value of your home.
Re-tile the Bathroom Shower Area
A lot of work goes into a project of this type, so you may want to consider hiring a remodeling contractor to complete it for you. Not only must the old tiles be chiseled out for removal, but some of the new tiles will need cutting in order to fit them in around the faucets, spigot, shower jets, and special ledges or soap dishes.
Re-tile the Bathroom Floor and Walls
Your options for tiling the bathroom floor and walls are many. The more luxurious choices include travertine, marble, slate, granite, and ceramic. Consider your options carefully, as the pricing varies greatly among them. It’s important to make sure that you use waterproof materials to protect the existing walls and floors from the barrage of water and moisture that always exists in the bathroom.
Tips for Re-tiling the Bathroom
When you hire a contractor, you won’t need to worry about anything but selecting the tile. Everything else will be handled by the remodeling professional, including measurements, ordering the materials, installation, and cleanup. The professionals at Westside Remodeling can share a long list of happy clients where bathrooms have been transformed.
If possible, choose your tile for the entire room at the same time so that you can match the patterns and colors. In general, you’ll want to select lighter colors if you have a small bathroom so that you get the illusion of spaciousness.
