Both bathrooms and kitchens are areas prone to moisture, heat, and spills. Thus, the choice of tiles should reflect durability, water resistance, and ease of cleaning. Here are popular options: Ceramic Tiles: Made from clay and baked in a kiln, ceramic tiles are a popular choice for both bathrooms and kitchens due to their durability and variety of designs. They're also relatively easy to install and maintain. Porcelain Tiles: These are a type of ceramic tile but are fired at higher temperatures, making them denser, more durable, and less porous. They're especially suited for areas with high moisture. Natural Stone Tiles: Materials like granite, marble, and slate add a touch of luxury but require sealing to prevent stains and water damage. Glass Tiles: Especially popular as backsplashes in kitchens, glass tiles are resistant to stains, mold, and mildew.

The frequency of resealing depends on the type of tile, the quality of the initial sealant used, and the amount of traffic and exposure to water: Natural Stone Tiles: These generally need to be resealed once a year, especially in high-traffic or high-moisture areas. Some stones might require more frequent sealing. Grout: Since grout is porous, it's more susceptible to moisture and stains. It's a good practice to reseal grout at least once a year in high-moisture areas like showers. For areas with less exposure, every 2-3 years might suffice. Always test the sealant's effectiveness by dropping some water on the tile or grout. If it beads up, the sealant is still working; if it absorbs, it's time to reseal.

While it's possible to tile over existing tiles, it's crucial to consider a few factors before proceeding: Condition of Existing Tiles: The current tiles should be firmly attached, without any movement, cracks, or significant damage. Surface Preparation: The old tiles should be cleaned thoroughly to remove any grease, soap scum, or other residues. It's also recommended to slightly sand or roughen the surface for better adhesion. Height and Weight Considerations: Adding another layer will increase the wall or floor's thickness, possibly affecting fixtures or transitions to other rooms. Ensure the underlying structure can support the added weight. Adhesive: Use a high-quality thin-set adhesive suitable for tiling over tiles. While tiling over existing tiles can be quicker and less messy, it's essential to ensure the foundation is sound. Otherwise, issues with the underlying tiles could lead to problems with the new layer.
