Why do Tiles Installed in Bathrooms Crack?

Bathroom Tiles

Choosing the right tile for a bathroom is a tough task but actually, the toughest task is to prevent bathroom tiles from cracking. There are various reasons why bathroom tiles crack very easily. One of the ways to minimize this is to carefully choose high-quality bathroom wall tiles and floor tiles.

Bathroom Wall Tiles

Check If the Concrete is Cracked Underneath

There is a possibility that the concrete underneath your bathroom floor tiles gets cracked after drying up. As a result, the tile moves along with the concrete and gets cracked too. To avoid this, let the concrete heal itself for a month or so before you install the tiles. This way you can prevent cracks in bathroom tiles too.

Go for Premium Quality Tiles

People often fall for designer bathroom tiles and neglect the tile material. Choose premium quality bathroom tiles because tiles made of poor quality material may crack very soon. Orientbell’s bathroom tiles are made with the best quality material and are very durable. You can check out various designs available in the modern bathroom tiles category.

Water-Resistant Tiles

Another aspect that can cause cracks is the porosity of tiles. When moisture seeps in the tiles, they create space within the tiles and lead to cracking. To avoid this, you can go for porcelain tiles as they are less porous and are resistant to water. These tiles are not just strong but also prevent any kind of water leakage.

Stone Tiles

Natural stones are always the first preference of people looking for bathroom flooring. But they require regular maintenance and are expensive! Orientbell’s travertine tiles, limestone tiles, marble tiles, and granite tiles look the same as natural stones and are equally durable and long-lasting. These tiles are less porous and can withstand all wet area conditions, therefore, they are perfect as bathroom tiles. The bathroom tiles price is reasonable so it wouldn’t pinch your pocket!
