How to tile a window shelf or window board

How to tile a window shelf or window board

Tiling window boards or window shelves in kitchens can have quite a dramatic effect but the actual job of tiling them can often be difficult and time consuming, this is why I made this page to show you whats underneath the shelf and how its done. You see its not just a case of removing the shelf which can sometimes be tough in itself but often underneath the shelf there is nothing to tile to so I have got to make and fit a base to fit the tiles...

Pattern tiles are getting more popular

Pattern tiles are getting more popular

Pattern tiles or vintage tiles as they are sometimes known are becoming increasingly popular in homes that I have been tiling recently. I think this is a trend as I see more of them when I call to the tile shops and see the displays which now seem to show a wider variety of styles than they ever did. They all hark back to the tiles which we used to call encaustic tiles which were patterns printed onto a concrete base and used as inlay tiles in...

Belltree Park hall and floor tiles

Belltree Park hall and floor tiles

This is a brand new A rated home at Belltree Park in Dublin. The owners were looking for an uncomplicated clean look so went for 45cm by 45cm porcelain tiles with a travertine design and i think they got the look they were looking for. The floor tiles run from the front to the back of the house giving a sense of space and continuity which is very easy on the eye and….

Kitchen & hall tiling in Nurney

Tiling the hall and kitchen floor in the same bright polished porcelain tile from the front to the back of the house really brightens up this new home, the grey concrete floor really wasn’t working any more for them. The owners had not long moved in and had taken their time to decide what tile they wanted fitted and i think they made a good choice. It was quite….

The Stables Kill bathroom modifications

The Stables Kill bathroom modifications

This house in Kill is really nice, a modern compact 3 bed terrace in a countryside setting and the bathroom suits it well, it wouldn’t be out of place in a Laura Ashley catalogue. However we live in the real world where water and timber don’t mix well when they come into contact in bathrooms so as much as it looks good as you can see in the first few pictures…..

Kitchen backsplash ideas

Kitchen backsplash ideas

Tiling a kitchen backsplash or kitchen wall normally takes something less than a day but the transformation in the house can be fairly amazing. But this isn’t by accident its because of all of the thought that goes in to the choosing of the new tiles and how they will compliment the kitchen and the countertop and as you can see all of my customers are great at that. You can also …..

Tiling timber effect tiles

Tiling timber effect tiles

Tiling with timber effect tiles can be difficult because often the tiles are not flat. This makes it impossible to fit the floor with no lips between the tiles but this can be minimised when the grout gap is increased. But with these tiles in this cottage which was initially constructed in the 1700’s the effect is perfect because it makes the place look really old, just…

Re-Tiling an ensuite from start to finish

Re-Tiling an ensuite from start to finish

This ensuite hadn’t been used for 8 years as the shower leaked and had damaged the ceiling in the room below. They had fixed the ceiling but not the en suite but the decision was made to change the tiles and fit a vanity unit in place of the old pedestal sink. Re tiling bathrooms can be problematic because when this was originally tiled around 2000 we used…

Fitting a new bath & tiling bathroom in Kildare

Fitting a new bath & tiling bathroom in Kildare

This was a bathroom in a 3 bed semi, the same as so many in Ireland. The lady wanted it to be more contemporary and nicer to be in with somewhere to put her candles, but without the costs of a complete redesign. So I suggested fitting a new bath and boxing it in which would give a small shelf all the way around, so she had a place for her candles, and now….

Leaking shower and leaking wetroom

Leaking shower and leaking wetroom

Leaking showers or wet rooms can be annoying, but when the leak is not revealed by stains on ceilings or adjacent walls the damage is hidden, but still continues. When this happens the water damage that has been caused by the leak is first noticed by loose tiles or even tiles that are falling off the wall and there is no quick fix to this. This is what has happened…

Boxing in and tiling around a bath

Boxing in and tiling around a bath

Boxing in and tiling around the bath can be very effective in the family bathroom, and the en-suite too if its big enough. In this bathroom it works well because the tiles are huge and the room is fairly big too, big enough to carry the modular design which means all the grout lines of the tiles match up on the walls and the floor. It also works well because there is only…
