In this post series we are now (finally) getting to a phases which are visible to you once the bathroom remodel is complete.
One of the great advantages of tiles (which includes ceramic tiles, natural stone, slate, etc) is the incredible diversity of finishes, colors, and patterns available to you for your tile tub alcove or shower.
The Solera Group provides expert bathroom remodeling services in the greater San Jose metro area.
One word of advise for bathroom remodels, if you want a low maintenance bathroom, you want your tiles to have as smooth a surface as possible (which means ceramic tiles) and as thin a grout line as possible (1/8 of an inch).
Anything you install that has a porous surface will require regular resealing and will be harder to clean.
Having said that, I personally love the feel of natural stone in a shower and consider that trade off (low maintenance vs feel) to be worth it.
What’s important for tile installation is the behind the tile layers be properly installed (if the city performed an inspection you know they are).
In terms of visual appeal, smaller tiles make a room feel more crowded whereas larger tiles give the room a more spacious feel.
