Bathroom progress | Tile

April 6, 2016

In the last post I mentioned some tips for choosing bathroom tile. Since deconstructing the bathroom we updated the plumbing for the sink, shower and toilet and ripped out the existing green board and replaced it with concrete board on the floor and walls (see it here). This will help support the weight of the subway tile, and is also a much more durable water barrier.

Additionally, we installed radiant floor panels, however one thing we didn’t plan on was the uneven surface that the panels presented. Hex tile comes in 12×12 squares that are incredibly floppy and hard to work with on an uneven surface. Before we could lay tile we decided to thin-set the floor with concrete so the tile would lay perfectly flat.

Here you can see the floor tile going in. Finally!

After the floor tile was in and cured we grouted and replaced the toilet. Below you can see a few stages of tile going up on the walls. We chose a simple white ceramic subway tile to contrast with the black hex we picked for the floor.

Stay tuned for more progress!
