Bathroom Floor Tiling Project – SnapStone Tiles Installed

In this next article within our continuing bathroom floor tiling project series, I wanted to show a series of pictures which show the progression of the tiles being laid.

As we progress from one picture to the next, you can see what starts out looking like a home renovation DIY type of project to one of a bathroom with a very nice looking tile floor.

Why start there? Well, the heating vent in the floor was only a few inches out from the wall. If we started tiling on the opposite wall, that would have left very narrow tiles to be around the floor vent. While the porcelain floor tile from SnapStone is very strong, why risk a cracked tile when one doesn’t have to?

Bennett’s approach was not to cut the tile for the opening of the air vent in the floor. Rather, he marked the position of the vent and once all of the tile was laid and grouted he would cut the opening.

From there he placed tile out from the wall with the sink towards the opposite wall.

As you can see in these pictures, the SnapStone floor tiles are placed in uniform symmetry because of the nature of the product.

Using the Tapping Block and Mallet, or even the rubber end of a hammer which Bennett used from time to time, the floor tiles are evenly placed just like a pro.

In no time the tiles are placed on the floor with a few spaces left to be cut with either a tile snapper or wet saw (again, see the installation videos on the SnapStone web site).

    IMO, a better way to have done this would have been to make the first row of tiles on the sink wall and the last row on the wall behind the toilet more even but cutting the first row a bit narrower and the last row a bit wider. This would have given enough tile against both walls to reduce the risk of breakage, and would have looked much nicer than that tiny bit against the toilet wall. Just more balanced.
