Your bathroom tiles will deteriorate over time no matter what you do. They’re not invincible against water and breaking. Through years of usage, they’ll turn yellowish, incur cracks, acquire mildew and eventually make your bathroom unpleasant to the eyes. So before you brood thinking about how bad your toilet and bath looks, calm yourself and read out our tips on bathroom tiles repair. The first thing that you need to do is check on your tiles. How grave is the damage? Are there pieces that require replacement? Are there big cracks on them? If the problem is really minimal and there are actually no broken tiles, you might want to consider regrouting. It’s the simplest and easiest way to give your bathroom a makeover.
