To help keep your bathroom design eye-catching, we will uncover 4 different ways to refresh your bathroom tiles, so you can love them for years to come.
Option 1 Refresh | Deep Clean Your Tiles
Whether a bathroom wall tile, shower tile or floor tile, the first option to refresh your bathroom tiles is the most simple: clean them regularly. It may seem obvious, but trust us, we know that day-to-day upkeep can fall to the wayside.
When it comes to deep cleaning, there are a few signs to look for on your tiles. They are:
-There’s visible marks on your bathroom floor tile, from soap, toothpaste, etc.
-There’s a haze over the tile. This comes from an accumulation of dirt and grime (yuck!)
-The grout which was once white is now a slight brown shade.
To complete this stage successfully, you’ll want to break your cleaning into two areas of focus: grout cleaning and tile surface cleaning.
Steps To Clean Your Tile Surface:
Like above, you’ll want to gather your materials. They are:
-Bucket of Water
-Baking Soda and Water
Follow these steps to clean your bathroom tiles:
Step 1: Vacuum the floors to clear away any dust and hair.
Step 2: Mop the floors to ensure they’re fully clean.
Step 3: With gloves on, mix together one part water and one part baking soda, spot clean any areas that have staining/spill marks.
Step 4: Hand dry with cloth.
Steps To Clean Your Grout:
First, gather the materials that you’ll need for this. They are:
-7 Cups Warm Water
-⅓ C Baking Soda
-⅓ C Ammonia
-¼ C Vinegar
-Sponge or Toothbrush
-Towel or Rag
Next, you can dive into cleaning. To do this, follow the below steps:
Step 1: Mix together all ingredients in a bucket.
Step 2: Wet your sponge or toothbrush into the mixture.
Step 3: Start to scrub the white grout lines with your tool of choice.
Step 4: Finally, rinse the area and wipe dry with a towel or rag.
Option 2 Refresh | Reseal Your Tiles
Let’s say your tiles and grout are beyond the help of a deep clean. The next way to refresh them is by resealing the material. It creates a water-proof surface which makes it hard for liquid to penetrate it and helps update bathroom tiles. In doing so, you’ll be able to keep them secure from the elements in the bathroom (i.e; water, soap) and stay refreshed for a long time.
Option 3 Refresh| Regrout Your Tiles
Another option to help liven your design is to regrout your tiles. This is a perfect option if there’s any cracking in the surface of the grout, or stains that just won’t budge when you clean them. You can even change the look of your space a little by choosing a dimension grout which can add a burst of color. A simple, yet easy refresh.
Option 4 Refresh | Overhaul + Retile
The final option is completely retiling your bathroom. This will provide you with a completely fresh slate to start from. Plus, you can update the look and feel of your overall space for a like-new design.
We hope that with these 4 options, you’ll find the best way to refresh your bathroom tiles and enjoy your space once again.
