If you are looking for economical ways to upgrade your bathroom, looking at bathroom designs with ceramic tile could be the perfect choice.
Ceramic tile is very in expensive, comes in a wide variety of colors, sizes, and finishes. Ceramic is durable and very easy to clean. However, it scratches easily and anyone planning on putting a floor made from these tiles should have a clear topping put over it, much like waxing the old hard wood floors.
Tile doesn’t need to stop on the floor. Entire walls, showers, back-splashes, and even vanity counter tops can be made of ceramic tile. No tile is easy to install unless you happen to be in the business, and ceramic does pose a bit of problem with beginner do-it-yourself because they do tend to crack in the wrong place as you cut them to fit your project. The good news is that they are cheap enough so that even multiple accidents will still ensure that your project is completed within budget ‘ no need to buy another case of expensive tile as you might need to if you had chosen glass tiles or even marble.
One of the easiest projects to do with ceramic tile is to buy sheets with the tiles already embedded in the backing. The tiles are small and sometimes can be purchased as 1′ or 2′ squares, and the sheets are then purchased by the square foot.
Install this type of tile anywhere. It’s actually the perfect way to practice with using tiles because chances are, you will never need to cut through these tiny tiles to fit a specific area. Try this first on your counter top. This way you aren’t trying to hang tile ‘ this can be very time consuming and frustrating for almost anyone.
Once this mesh backed sheet has been laid down, it’s a simple matter of putting the grout over the tile, wiping away the excess, and waiting for everything to set.
