Bathroom tiles for wall design with stripes
Wall tiles are great material for bathrooms. Vertical, diagonal or horizontal stripes, created with wall tiles, instantly add personality to modern bathroom design and make a statement.
How to create horizontal stripes with wall tiles
To establish the stripes on the wall, measure up from the floor and make marks along the wall so you can connect them to create horizontal lines. You can alternate the widths of stripes and add interest to the tiled wall design. Use a string and pushpins to draw the guidelines for the tile stripes along the wall.
Within the stripes to be tiled, apply sheets of SimpleMat backing material according to the directions. Then apply the wall tiles directly to the mat. You may have to do some cutting with tile cutters to stay within the lines.
Once all the tiles are in, you need to apply the tile grout. This is done with a grout float held at a 45 degree angle to the lines between the wall tiles. Above and below the stripe, you can add quarter-round trim tiles by embedding them into the tile grout. After 20 minutes you can remove the excess grout with a damp sponge. After a couple of hours you can polish away any remaining haze with a piece of cheesecloth.
Cover the edges of the wall tiles with painters tape so you can paint the area above and below your tile stripes in a complimentary color. With just a little effort and a little money, you can created a modern bathroom design with a lot of personality and beautiful wall design.
