A common misconception many bathroom remodelers have is that when they are remodeling a small bathroom there can be no addition of color and the style is limited. This is simply not the case; a small bathroom can be as warm, comfortable and stylish as a large bathroom. One of the easiest ways to add style and color to a small bathroom is with the addition of ceramic tile on the shower walls. These easy instructions will walk you step by step through the installation of ceramic wall tile for your small bathroom.
The first step for do-it-yourself bathroom remodelers is to choose the color and size of the tiles. Keep in mind that larger tiles will help the room look larger. You can use any color, but a lighter color or tile with minimal designs will make the room appear larger. Clean and prep walls by removing all pre-existing wallpaper, peeling paint and/or plaster. Draw a line on the wall to the height you want the tile. Start on the back wall and lay a starter row of tiles. Mark and cut the pieces that need fitted. Use tile nippers for cutting holes around the fixtures.
On the starter row area, use a trowel to apply adhesive to the wall, place the tiles over the adhesive, leaving a 1/8 inch gap between the tub and first row of tiles. Use spacers between the tiles. After the first row is completed, work in a stair step pattern for the remaining rows. Finish the remaining walls in the same pattern. Allow to dry 24 hours. Mix the grout to a smooth consistency. Remove spacers from the tiles and spread the grout with a rubber squeegee over the gaps and wipe with a damp sponge to remove excess grout. Let the grout dry at least 24 hours. The last step for DIY bathroom remodelers is to apply caulking to the gap between the tub and the wall.
