Using Brick Slips in Bathroom

When you use brick slips in your bathroom, especially for bathroom areas, we highly recommend that you seal them properly from the start. You can use either a gloss or matt sealant to make sure they wil withstand the moisture. A bathroom is a naturally quite damp and water spills can mean a wet environment, which is why sealing helps protect your shower walls. By sealing the brick slips you are making the surface of the brick slip hydrophobic allowing the water to bead from the clay.

If you really want to make sure that you have a successful project when you install bathroom brick slips in the home, you need to plan ahead, and decide on what products you want to use before you start. If you are not sure what brick slips to choose, get a sample from us. Make sure you get the colour and texture just right before you start installing your shower brick slips. 

Another thing to remember when you install brick slips is that bathroom brick slips can really open up a bathroom, so location is important. Pay attention to mirrors and where they are located. For example, if you want to add a mirror opposite a brick slip wall, you can easily double the exposure of that wall through line of site. Also remember that there will be heat in a bathroom, so if you want to position a towel rail near a shower brick slip wall will help to keep the clay dry and will also help to warm up the room faster due to the conductivity and heat retention.

With so many options available, you can use tiles to create a personalised look, or add a popular style that will be perfect in your bathroom for decades to come. Whether it’s metro tiles, marble effect tiles, or beautiful patterned bathroom tiles, you can be creative, avoid expensive prices, and benefit from a durable solution for your bathroom. 

Always start with a few samples, plan ahead for your entire project, and make sure that you have all the brick slip accessories you will need. This will ensure that your bathroom brick slip project are done perfectly and that your shower walls will last for many years.
