Covering Old Bathroom Tiles

We all make heavy demands on our bathroom spaces so it’s no surprise that with heavy use over time, tiles can look tired and grubby. Unless you follow a very strict cleaning regime, tiles are difficult to keep looking fresh. It’s not so much the tiles, but more the grout lines between them; prone to discolouration and cracking over time, that can pull the look of your bathroom down. Grout can also be a focus for mould growth.

So, if you feel you have put up with those old mouldy tiles for long enough, know this: you don’t even have to go to the hassle of removing them when covering old bathroom tiles. No need to hack and chip away instead, you can opt to fit bathroom wall panels straight over your old tiles to cover them up.

Suitable for all types of bathrooms, waterproof wall panels can be fitted directly onto almost any surface - wood, concrete and even on top of those unloved old tiles.
