If you are redesigning your bathroom and you’re thinking of investing in some luxury bathroom tiles, it’s important to know how to care for your bathroom walls to make them stand the test of time, and look as beautiful and new as the day you installed them.
Brands such as Villeroy and Boch are well known for featuring some of the most stylish and luxurious bathroom tile collections in the industry. In order to keep your tiles looking wonderful for years to come, make sure you apply the right care and maintenance.
Generally, very little maintenance is required for bathroom tiles and tiles can withstand even the most wet and damp conditions. But there are a few things you can do to ensure that your tiles stay beautiful for longer.
Take a look at some top tips on caring for luxury bathroom tiles:
1. Regular cleaning – giving your bathroom tiles a once over with a cloth after every use in the shower / bath is a great way of keeping them maintained and protected from water damage for years to come. If this isn’t possible, it’s important to clean the tiles regularly, either with a damp cloth or a sponge.
2. Scrub away dirt – dirt and grime can build up easily on your bathroom tiles and shampoos / shower gels are some of the biggest culprits when it comes to colouration on your nice white grout. Use a toothbrush to get all that difficult-to-reach dirt and keep your tiles free from grime build up, and don’t forget that you may need to re-grout if the seal is no longer there.
3. Use a good bathroom cleaner – bathroom cleaning products are great because they include bleach and/or antibacterial agents. This is a great way of killing germs that can build up around your shower or bath area and is the best way to maintain the best hygiene levels in your home.
4. Inspect your tiles regularly – inspect your bath and shower area for leaks, mould or unwanted grime. Make sure you check regularly to avoid problems with damp. Keep an eye out for broken spigots, broken spigot covers or faulty shower doors / bath screens. Inspect thoroughly to make sure you don’t miss any cracks or holes where water can leak out of. If these problems are detected early on, you can avoid the hefty bills of replacing parts or tiles for your bathroom.
