Using Brick Slips in Bathroom

When you use brick slips in your bathroom, we highly recommend that you seal them, by using either a gloss or matt sealant. 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.

Here are a few great tips for adding bathroom brick slips to your shower area:

  • Plan ahead. Decide on what products you want to use before your contractor starts. 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.
  • Location. If used correctly, bathroom brick slips can really open up a bathroom, so always pay attention to mirrors and where they are to be located. For example, should you decide to place a mirror opposite a brick slip wall, you can easily double the exposure of that wall through line of site.
  • Remember the heat. Positioning 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.

These are just some of the great bathroom brick slips you can choose from when you revamp your shower walls or floor. With so many options available, you can use tiles to create a personalised look, or add a popular style that will be perfect 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.
