When you hear the word ‘tiling’ you immediately consider floor tiles in your kitchen or bathroom. However, tiling can be much more than just a cheap floor covering and can be utilised in other places around your home. This doesn’t just mean the shower, but also pools, walls, balconies and as decoration on these surfaces. No matter where you want to install your tiles, it’s important to remember that it can be a big job, and the proper process must be undertaken to ensure that your tiles are built to last.
First of all, you need to have a think about what type of tiles you want to install and if these tiles will suit the area you wish to install them in. This is particularly important in the instance of pool tiles, in which tiles that are impervious to water and are hard to slip on must be used. Similarly, if in the instance that you require tiles for decoration, mosaics would typically be used.
The next thing to consider is how you are going to fix these tiles to your surface, such as using glues and underlays. Depending on the type of tile you are using, and the surface you are fixing the tile to, different underlays should be used. For example, if you were tiling your pool, you would once again need a substance that is impervious to water as well as the chemicals in your pool.
The final thing to consider before your tiling renovation is undertaken is what needs to be removed in the area. If you were tiling your bathroom floor, for example, you would need to remove skirting boards and any fixtures like a toilet or basin.
