So it’s the New Year – a time for resolutions and to make plans to tackle those glass wall tile projects you’ve been putting off for some time now.
Many of us have a tendency to put off such projects, simply because we’re worried about the complexity of the job at hand. But tiling needn’t be too complex and it is a job you should be able to tack on your home, if treated carefully and with a final design in mind.
Some might say that tiling is one of the easiest jobs you can take on yourself, as installing glass tiles as part of a renovation job is quite straightforward. Unlike painting and wallpapering a room which can be unwieldy for people not accustomed to that type of work. So cast aside concerns about potential frustrations and potentially damaging your home as this is simply not the case when it comes to installing tiles.
All it takes is the right amount of adhesive, a level, the tiles you want to use, and a having a plan in place as well as a firm idea of the look and feel you want to achieve with your end result. If so the options and styles of tiles are endless and the effects you can achieve can be truly awe inspiring.
So if you want to totally remodel your kitchen or bathroom in a significant way without calling in the professionals, or simply add a feature wall or some nice design touches with splash backs, then get tiling!But perhaps you’ve never really taken the time to consider a do-it-yourself home renovation job. If so, you could do a lot worse than to get some sample glass mosaic tiles for your kitchen or bathroom in order to take a look at how they’re supplied and how you need to apply them. This is the kind of project you can do in a day or, if you are being really careful, two.
One piece of advice for anyone new to DIY is that the real key to this type of job is to do it slowly and carefully. The biggest mistake people often can make is to go at the job with too heavy a hand and not taking the time to order the tiles properly. So take your time, make a careful job of it and do not be afraid to do it yourself!
