To simplify the craft of building custom bathrooms register for our Bathroom Repair Tutor Video Library
Let’s dive in and discuss the tips.
Tip 1: choose large format shower tile
This cuts down on cleaning and makes the tile to grout ration high…meaning fewer grout joints
Tip 2: choose large format floor tile
Same reasons why you want large tile in the shower and one extra tip…get the floor tile that has grip to it to prevent slips and falls
NOTE: I totally get that you might want smaller tiles, and that’s cool, but if you want less cleaning then large tiles are the way to go.
Tip 3: Tile up to the ceiling
Why leave a 12″ piece of drywall between your tile and ceiling? If you’re tall there’s a big chance water will splash on this drywall and ruin it over time…just tile to the ceiling 🙂
We have a total of 10 super amazing tips in the video.
