Bathroom Wall Tiles

Ceramic wall tiles for the bathroom create a flawless canvas on which to begin to place the remaining elements that make up a space designed for personal wellness and care. 

Metro tiles, concrete-finish pieces, metallic mosaics and stone-effect tiles combined with metal profiles are some examples of smart choices for planning a stylish bathroom.

Bathroom and ceramic in harmony

The leitmotiv for designing bathrooms in a home always comprises the universe of water and relaxation, understood as wellness and body care. The materials must be chosen along these same lines, selecting products that lend the ensemble comfort and beauty. 

Ceramic pieces enhance any decorative project due to their many possibilities. Additionally, this material stands out for its ease of maintenance and undeniable durability.

Ceramic wall tiles are always an ideal material for the bathroom. Maintenance and cleaning are easy and can be done using domestic processes. An exceptional resistance to high temperatures, chemicals and aggressive atmospheric agents, as well as a great capacity for thermal and electrical insulation, provide this highly efficient material with added value.

FAQs regarding Bathroom Wall Tiles

At PORCELANOSA we always recommend using a qualified installer, preferably with demonstrable experience, to lay wall tiles.

That said, the main aspects to take into consideration when installing bathroom wall tiles are as follows:

  • Before starting to lay wall tiles, check the information on the packaging and strictly follow the manufacturer's recommendations.
  • Make sure the wall is completely flat and stable and check that it is clean, dry and levelled (using a spirit level).
  • Tile joints shall be at least 2 mm in interiors and 5 mm in exteriors. The use of self-levelling spacers is recommended.
  • The adhesive choice depends on the type and format of the ceramic tile, the fixing background and the intended use. Don't worry if you don't know which type of adhesive to use for which type of tile. You will find the recommended adhesive for each tile on the product page (under ""You will need"").
  • The most recommended tile installation system is thin-bed tile installation, using a notched trowel for spreading the mortar onto the substrate. For tiles larger than 1,000 cm2, the double gluing technique is recommended.
  • Follow the manufacturer's recommendations for the adhesives preparation and use. Apply the bonding material with a notched trowel suitable for the size of the chosen tile; check the wetting capacity of the adhesive and press the tile onto the bonding material using a back-and-forth movement.
  • Likewise, follow the manufacturer's recommendations for the preparation and use of jointing materials. Make sure that the material and tools chosen will not damage the surface of the ceramic tiles.
  • Wait until the grout starts to dry and clean it with a sponge dampened with clean water, before the jointing material hardens completely.
  • When cleaning, use products that are suitable for the chemical resistance of the tiles; check with the manufacturer for advice on which product to choose.

More detailed information can be found in the Laying Instructions that come with the PORCELANOSA catalogues.

The installation of large format tiles requires a qualified installer; only professionals with demostrable experience in this type of work are recommended.

That said, the main aspects to take into consideration when installing large tiles in the bathroom are as follows:

  • Before starting to lay wall tiles, check the information on the packaging and strictly follow the manufacturer's recommendations.
  • Tiles must be handed with the utmost care to avoid damaging them with impacts or scratches, which would compromise the material's performance. Before starting to lay the tiles, check for visible damage.
  • Make sure the wall is completely flat and stable and check that it is clean, dry and levelled (using a spirit level).
  • Tile joints shall be at least 2 mm in interiors and 5 mm in exteriors. The use of self-levelling spacers is recommended.
  • The adhesive choice depends on the type and format of the ceramic tile, the fixing background and the intended use. For this type of tile, the use of thixotropic adhesives with the longest possible working time is recommended.
  • The most recommended tile installation system is thin-bed tile installation, using a notched trowel for spreading the mortar onto the substrate. For tiles larger than 1,000 cm2, the double gluing technique is recommended. Use a notched trowel of a suitable size for the chosen ceramic format.
  • The use of suction cups is recommended for handling large tiles.
  • Follow the manufacturer's recommendations for the adhesives preparation and use. Apply the bonding material with a notched trowel suitable for the size of the chosen tile; check the wetting capacity of the adhesive and press the tile onto the bonding material using a back-and-forth movement.
  • Likewise, follow the manufacturer's recommendations for the preparation and use of jointing materials. Make sure that the material and tools chosen will not damage the surface of the ceramic tiles.
  • Wait until the grout starts to dry and clean it with a sponge dampened with clean water, before the jointing material hardens completely.
  • When cleaning, use products that are suitable for the chemical resistance of the tiles; check with the manufacturer for advice on which product to choose.

More detailed information can be found in the Laying Instructions that come with the PORCELANOSA catalogues.

Ceramic tiles, in general, do not require any specific maintenance after all the installing operations have been completed. For daily cleaning, it is recommended to use a damp mop or sponge, periodically renewing the cleaning water to remove any traces of dirt. The use of hot water accelerates considerably the time of drying and reduces the formation of a surface layer that fixes dirt.

The use of neutral cleaning products is also recommended, such as Butech's porce-clean. In contrast, the use of cleaners containing waxes in their composition is not recommended, as they end up forming a thin layer on the ceramic tile, which favours the absorption and retention of dirt.

For stains due to specific products or substances, please refer to the table below, which lists the recommended cleaners for each type of tile, depending on the substance that causes the stain: Butech cleaner

Removing ceramic tiles from bathroom wall is simple, although very labour-intensive. Follow the instructions below:

  • Removing ceramic tiles produces a lot of dust and debris, so it is recommended to close the work area with plastic sheeting and tape.
  • Remove mouldings, doors and door frames that may interfere with tile removal.
  • Protect yourself with dust masks, safety goggles, ear protection and work gloves. Pay special attention to ceramic fragments, as they can cause cuts.
  • Use metal tools that allow leverage under the tiles, such as scrapers or chisels, hammers or iron mallets, shovels and use wheelbarrows to remove debris.
  • Find a point from which the underside of a tile can be accessed and from which it can be levered out. If this is not possible, break one tile with a sledgehammer to get started.
  • The ease of removing a tile will depend on how it has been glued. Look for hollow areas under the tiles to make it easier.
  • Use a chisel and hammer to remove any adhesive residue fixed to the substrate.
  • Remove ceramic and bonding material residues, taking special care to avoid cuts.
  • Before laying new tiles, check that the stability of the substrate and fixing surface are suitable to receive the new tiling. Where necessary, waterproof again.

There are primers, adhesives and other materials available that can be used directly on the ceramic wall tiling, without the need to remove the tiles. In order to use them, you need to assess the state of the ceramic tile installation and whether the load-bearing capacity of the substrate allows for this.

No, you don't have to, as there are now alternative materials for waterproofing bathroom walls. Deciding whether to tile the walls from floor to ceiling, only tile the wet areas or just tile a single wall in your bathroom is simply a matter of style.

When tiling a bathroom wall, the first tile should be place against the lowest point of the base you are working to (either the floor, the skirting tile, the bath top or the bathroom countertop) – use a spirit level to make sure it's perfectly straight. The next tile will be placed next to the first and so on progressively until you have the first line of tiles. For details on the next steps, see the installation video below.
