Bathroom renovation – things owners should pay attention to

Repairing a bathroom is not just as simple as laying some tiles or replacing the toilet and sink. It contains a lot of technical details and specifications. If these details are not done well, the result may not only cause water leakage quickly, but may also cause visual discomfort.

Today we mainly introduce some details that should be paid attention to in bathroom decoration. Understanding these can help everyone avoid unnecessary pitfalls.

1. Bathroom waterproofing

Bathroom waterproofing is the highlight of the entire bathroom. Failure to do a good job of waterproofing can cause the wood behind the shower wall to gradually become

damp, rot, and breed mold and bugs. In severe cases, water leaks to the ceiling downstairs.

In addition, generally after the bathroom base is waterproofed, a leakage test is required. Block the bathroom drain, then drain the water, mark the water level, and then test

to see if water flows away to determine whether there is a leak.

2. Whether the gaps between the tiles are even, whether the patterns are consistent, and whether the tiles are laid smoothly

When the gaps between ceramic tiles are uneven, it will have a strong impact on the overall appearance. In addition, especially thin tiles should be avoided when tiles are placed close to the wall. When this happens, it is often due to a lack of planning at the beginning. At the same time, the bathroom floor tiles at the junction with the bedroom should be kept as smooth as possible to avoid bumps. Finally, special attention should be paid to the fact that the tile cuts should not have too many jagged edges or curves, which will cause the bathroom to look rough and rough. Usually these are caused by the wrong way of cutting, or the cutting saw is not sharp enough and needs to be sharpened before cutting.

3. Are there slopes on the base, shower threshold, and wall niche?

After you're done in the bathroom, be sure to check the slope of those areas. They need to face the inside of the bathroom to ensure proper drainage.

4. Do bathroom floors and walls need to be waterproofed?

Except for the bathroom, which needs to be waterproofed, the walls of other parts of the bathroom do not need to be waterproofed.

It is best to make the ground waterproof, because water can easily fall from the shower room and sink to the ground, and then slowly penetrate into the cement below, and finally enter the plywood. Nowadays, when most masters are making the floor, they use barbed wire, add cement, and then lay ceramic tiles. This method does not keep the floor waterproof. If the owner needs ground waterproofing, he can mention it to the master when quoting. Currently, the most common ground waterproofing method is Schluter Ditra (pictured below), which is a very good waterproof membrane mat and is relatively simple and labor-intensive to lay. If you want to add floor heating, Schluter also has a set of materials that match Ditra, which instantly improves the comfort of the entire bathroom.

5. Is the cement applied correctly when laying tiles?

When the tiles are larger, it is particularly important to allow the back of the tiles to be covered with cement to fully adhere to the wall. Failure to do this will result in the bathroom wall being weak and moisture more likely to penetrate.
