Tiling and Wet-Proofing Bathroom

You will also need to consider how you will tile and wet-proof your bathroom. How much of your bathroom with be tiled? What materials will you use to tile your bathroom? For example, Porcelain tiles are the most popular tiling solution for many, due to the material’s high density providing extra waterproofing. However, vinyl tiling is often cheaper and easier to install, while providing similar levels of waterproofing. You will need to consider your aesthetic and practical trade-offs when weighing your options in terms of tiling.
