Bathroom Floor Tiling Project Using SnapStone Porcelain Floor Tiles

SnapStone Tiles Installed 1

Back in the spring we wrote a lengthy series of articles on our efforts to replace the carpet, yes I said carpet, in our physically challenged daughter's bathroom with floor tile. There was a lot of preparation needed to the sub-floor. This was not because of the nature of the floor tile we were using. Rather, it was because the under-floor needed a lot of work. As well there was existing tile underneath the toilet as well as a single row of tile on the floor by the back and the … [Read more...]

Bathroom Floor Tiling Project – Grouting Observations

SnapStone Grout Buckets

When we last wrote about our bathroom floor tiling home renovation project, we discussed the application of the SnapStone porcelain floor tiles in and around the toilet. Today, I wanted to mention the grouting. Now, the grout used with SnapStone floor tiles is different.

We have spent many articles in this series on our bathroom floor tiling project about the floor preparation. Every situation will be different. Our bathroom floor needed a lot of preparation as you saw; much more than most. However, once the floor is fully prepped, it is time to start laying the tile. Now, remember, the major difference with these porcelain floor tiles from SnapStone is that you do not use any type of thin-set between the under-floor and the tile.

SnapStone Tile Layed Out For Use

Now, I don't want you to think that ‘Gosh, there was a lot of tasks needed before Bennett even started to lay the non-traditional floor tile product from SnapStone." just because we have already written several articles in this series and we haven't yet started to lay the tile in earnest.
