DIY - Tips & tricks about bathroom and tiles

Ideas gallery about bathroom and tiles

First the technology, then the fun!

From a wet room to a wellness oasis – bathrooms are becoming larger, more complex and therefore more technically challenging. However, even a modern “living-bathroom” remains a moist and wet room which has to be completely sealed with resistant materials. Tiles are waterproof by nature, but many joint materials are not. Therefore it is important to keep the subsurface under the tiles dry and free of damage - otherwise rot and mould formation may occur.

Waterproofing must be conducted systematically

The waterproofing material under the tiles works best using specially aligned products. You can create an even, smooth subsurface using renovating and levelling grout. The actual sealing compound, which generally consists of multi-component, water-impermeable high-performance sealing slurries, is applied in a second step. These slurries are extremely elastic and set quickly. Sealing tapes and sealing liners strengthen the waterproofing layer in the area of the wall and floor joints, on the floor drains and the pipe penetrations. 

Glue, tile and join more effectively

Modern multifunctional, highly-elastic mortars which harden rapidly are suitable for applying and laying tiles and natural stone. You can frequently start jointing only 2 hours after applying the tiles. Modern joint masses are also high-tech products with special formulas. They are equipped with an increased resistance against microorganisms and mould fungi – for elegant, narrow, brightly-coloured and permanently attractive joint patterns.

Bathroom screeds –the quieter foundations for more attractive flooring

Floor coverings made of natural stone or tile transfer footfall sound which can spread through the entire house. Waterproof sealing and decoupling membranes deaden the sound, protect the subsurface from moisture, bridge cracks and secure tiled coverings.
