Shower Tiled – The Process

The process begins with selecting appropriate tiles that are suitable for wet environments, such as ceramic, porcelain, or natural stone. Consideration is given to factors such as size, colour, texture, and pattern to achieve the desired look and feel of the shower enclosure.

Before tiling begins, the walls must be properly prepared. This includes ensuring they are clean, dry, and smooth, with any imperfections patched or repaired. Waterproofing measures, such as applying a waterproof membrane or sealing seams and corners with waterproof tape, are essential to prevent water damage and mould growth.

Next, precise measurements are taken to determine the layout and placement of the tiles. Careful planning ensures that the tiles align correctly and accommodate any fixtures or features within the enclosure, such as shelves or niches.

Installation begins by applying adhesive to the wall with a notched trowel, followed by carefully placing each tile in position. Spacers are used to maintain uniform spacing between tiles, while a level ensures they are straight and plumb. Any excess adhesive or grout is removed promptly to maintain a clean and professional finish.

Tile Grouting

Once the tiles are in place, grout is applied to fill the gaps between them. Grout colour can be chosen to complement or contrast with the tiles, enhancing the overall aesthetic appeal of the shower enclosure. After the grout has dried, a sealant is applied to protect the tiles and grout from moisture and staining.
