Bathroom Tile / February 6, 2019 / Amie Thibault.
Porcelain bathroom tiles are an ideal way of lengthening the time your bathroom walls and floors will last. The average floor and sub flooring in a home will only last about 60 years. With this being said, the sub flooring will only hold carpet or linoleum for about 10 years based on the water absorption factors. Since these types of floor coverings have water absorption rates that are higher than all others, it makes sense that they should not be installed in a bathroom where so much water is used. Porcelain bathroom tiles can last for as long as the sub flooring will last when properly installed and cared for.
If you are thinking of replacing your old bathroom tiles and give it a completely new look, the task is not only tough, but also time consuming. The easiest way to get this done is by hiring professionals. But if you choose to do it yourself, you need to have the required care, patience and dedication. Let us try and understand the basics for replacing bathroom tiles.
Mosaic Bathroom Tile - this wonderful tile was an ancient craft that today can be made of tile, stone, porcelain and colored glass, creating stunning floor patterns. These tiles are small (1 or 2 inches square) and often expensive. What you can do is to add a small section of this type of tile for visual interest to your floor or countertop.
Stone Bathroom Tile Designs (marble, granite, brick, slate, onyx, travertine and limestone) - this tile can be beautiful, very strong, durable in high-traffic areas, it will last a long time, is low maintenance and easy to clean. However, it is expensive, it's a cold material, can be slippery and absorbs stains easily.
