So, you’re designing or renovating your bathroom and aren’t sure what to use on the walls. From aesthetics to functionality, choosing the right material for your bathroom wall is a big decision. To help you narrow down your choices, here are five of the best bathroom wall options from the team at Classic Waterproofing.
One of the most popular options for bathroom walls, ceramic and porcelain tiles provide a water-tight surface and beautiful finish. Ceramic and porcelain tiles are known for their long lifespans and are more likely to go out of style before they degrade. While the tiles themselves are relatively easy to keep clean, the grout holding them together can be difficult to keep free of mould.
Available in a huge range of colours and shapes, glass tiles have become extremely popular in the last 10 or so years. Extremely effective when paired with glass shower enclosures, glass tiles reflect light, give you the illusion of more space. The only downside of these tiles is their delicate nature. They are not as strong as ceramic tiles, making them more difficult to install.
Perfect for those that like a more natural look, stone tiles come in a range of styles including slate, marble and granite. Stone tiles lack the uniformity and clean finish of glazed tiles giving your bathroom a really luxurious feel. The downside of natural stone is its porous nature which allows grime to get into the grain of the stone. To prevent this, you will need to seal the surface and re-surface it every 3 or so years.
No matter what bathroom tile you choose, you should always start with a solid base of waterproofing. Remember that all residential waterproofing work must be completed by a certified Australian waterproofer.
