Adding ceramic or porcelain tile to your bath can richly enhance the beauty and value of you home and bath areas. 
With an industry that is so versatile and creative you could literally burn out trying to select the right patterns, styles and materials for your home. Since the industry has expanded material cost have drastically lowered making it very affordable to complete your project. 
Cost average – As a rule of thumb to establish a quick idea of what your project may cost I like to use a realistic cost per square foot  to establish a budget. $10.00 per sq ft. can give you a project cost projection. Broken down as follows $2 per sq ft. for backer board and screws. $2 per sq ft for Fortified mortar (thin Set) $4. per sw ft for actual ceramic tile (this will vary upon your selection). $2 per sq ft. for grout, grout sealer, sealant, dehazer and cleaner.
If you are installing self this allows for minor tools rentals such as a wet cutting saw, mixers, trowels floats etc…assuming you don’t own all the tools. 
There are many different types of tile from ceramic, porcelain, composite or stone to name a few. Once your decide on the look you wish to create….shop around for the best deal. Pricing is pretty competitive. 
Below are a few ideals to help or stimulate your minds ideas.

Grout is the material used to fill the spaces between the tiles. Make sure you apply sealers to grout lines in areas of heavy wear like countertops. Sealers will also preserve grout colors. The right color will enhance the tile shower design.

Several techniques can be used to create a professional look of the installation. 

  • Preview videos of tile installation
  • Preview videos of cutting tile (basic very easy with the proper tool)
  • Level line the area where you’re applying tile.
  • Consider starting in the dead center of the field 
  •        So if your tiling a show…there are 3 walls to consider. Left right and rear. Find dead center on the rear wall and start left and toward the right from that point. The end result is that the left side and right side of the rear wall will match. The same tile cut size ending left will also end right. (symmetry). 
  • Another big technique – corning bending or folding to complete a continuous pattern. 
  •       This is simply applying the end cut off from the rear wall (left or right) and continuing the pattern on the right wall or left, which direction you’reworking. The idea is to make the appear to fold at the corner. In the photo below if you could imaging laying the wall flat on the floor….there would be a constant uninterrupted pattern.
