Is it a good idea?


Before you begin installing tiles on your bathroom walls, you need to measure the space of the

wall and multiply the square meters by two to get the required amount. Once you have the

correct amount of space, you can start installing tiles. The process for tiling bathroom walls is

complex and requires careful planning. This will increase the overall cost. The process can take

weeks, or even months depending on the size and the pattern you choose.


Before you begin tiling your bathroom walls, you need to know the pros and cons. While

partially tiling walls can save you money, it can also cause water damage and mold problems.

However, fully tiling your bathroom walls will save you money in the long run, and will give

your bathroom a contemporary look. Additionally, tiles can last for years and are a great

investment. This is the best way to go if you have the budget and the time.


Where do you start when tiling a bathroom?


Before you start tiling your bathroom you will need to measure the walls. This can be done by

measuring from the floor to the top edge of the wall. Measure the length and width of uneven

walls and ensure you end up with a row of tiles. If you’re not sure, use a bubble-level to mark the

top line of the wall.


Adjust the layout to suit the squareness of the bathroom floor. If you’re tiling walls, start halfway

under the door when it’s closed. Measure two tiles, with two grout joints each, and draw an

intersecting line. Mark the edges after the tiles are placed. Continue this until the walls are

completed. If you don’t intend on tiling the walls with tiles, you’ll have gaps that need to be cut in

the tiles.


Can you tile over tile?


Can you tile over tile? It all depends on what type of floor you have and your preference. It may

not be a problem if your room has worn ceramic tile flooring. It is important to note that the old

tile floor must have enough strength to support the adhesive. You may need to make costly

repairs to the floor before you can tile it over. Tile over tile will raise the floor surface, and it may

interfere with furniture and doors.


If you are unsure about the wall’s condition, you should first determine if it is safe to tile over

tile. Next, remove any old tiles carefully and prepare the wall to receive the new tile. It’s safer

than replacing the entire backerboard to remove the old tiles. Then, apply thin-set mortar. You’ll

need to use a trowel to apply the mortar in small grooves. You should ensure that the thin-set

mortar does not exceed 1/4 inch in thickness.


What does it cost to tile your bathroom?


Costs of bathroom tiling depends on whether you are tiling bathroom suites or just a normal

bathroom. White tiles are the most common option for walls and patterned tile designs are what

are being used for floors. A guide to tiling might help you decide how you want your renovation

project to look like.

Tiling the bathroom of a small house can cost between £600 and £1,150 depending on the

materials used, the design and the size of the bathroom. Depending on the materials used, the

design and the size of the bathroom, tiling, a medium bathroom can cost between £1,100 and



Unless you have a very large bathroom, the majority of your costs will come from the labor

needed to tile the room, not from the materials themselves. Another reason why you should begin

budgeting for your bathroom tiling project early on is that it can be one of the more expensive

home development jobs, which is why you don’t want to be caught unprepared.


Make sure you have the budget for the entire project before undertaking bathroom tiling as part

of a larger bathroom project that includes other appliances, such as showers or toilets. As soon as

the larger appliances are installed, you may need to redo the tiling if you start to tile one area and

then have to wait due to budget constraints.


Having your bathroom tile ideas come to life takes planning. For your renovation project,

choosing bathroom tiles isn’t the only thing you should do. Know about sheet materials and other

tile materials you might need. Also look into bathroom tiling prices. The cost for tiling varies

depending on whether you’re tiling just the wall or floor or both. Cost for tiling, tile cutters and

supply costs would really depend on the customer projects.


What should a tiler charge for his services?


The cost of tiling your bathroom will depend on how complex the job is and how many square

meters you have to cover. If the room is large and complex, you can hire a tiler to complete the

job. The costs will be determined by the size of the room, the size of the tiles required, the

location of the job, and the reputation of the tiler. Most tilers will offer a quote based only on

their hourly rates, but it does not include the cost to install the tiles.

Whether you choose to use a professional or a DIY-er is up to you. You can expect to spend

anywhere between £6 and £20 per tile depending on the size you select (price per tile).

Depending on the room’s size and quality, the cost of tiling will vary.


Hiring a professional will give you advice on tile spacers, feature tiles, cutting tiles, notched

trowels, excess grout, tile giant and grout float. Although tiles alone are already costly, if you

really want your new bathroom to look good without having to learn a lot about tiling, you might

as well hire a professional tiler. Hiring a professional will save you money because you don’t

need to scout your local store and incur extra expenses in tiling the entire space of your



It is important to consider the price when choosing a tiler. While DIY tiling can be a great way of

saving money, a professional will be able to produce better results. You should ask for references

and check their business insurance. Ask to see pictures of recent jobs, and make sure the tiler has

the experience necessary to complete the work. To calculate the area to tile, multiply the room’s

length and width by the respective sizes. Then multiply that sum by 2 to determine the square

meter of your bathroom. If you are unsure, round the numbers to allow for any oddly shaped tiles

or broken tiles.

Tiling jobs are not cheap. If you remove old tiles make sure the people you hire are giving you

the right price. Compare quotes if you have plans to remove bathroom wall and floor tiles.
