After demolishing the walls, we next set our eyes on the floor. Now, here’s the thing. Weeks ago, one of the square ceramic tiles that were part of the previous owner’s 1994 renovation, came loose. And under it, there was a flicker of hope. I saw something, but didn’t want to get too excited.
So what I’m really trying to say is that of everything in the bathroom, all I really wanted to do was tear up the floor. Repeatedly, Gabe had to stop me from tearing up the tile before the walls were done. But I just couldn’t wait!
Definitely going to take some TLC to bring it back to life, but we’re hoping that we can use it and make it the newly restored floor in the bathroom.
On one slightly bittersweet note is how this tile was laid. Since it was original to the house, it is set directly into the wet set concrete sub floor. Meaning, apart from removing the glue, shining and tweaking, this tile is there for good and never coming up. The decision we now have to make is, can we save it? Or are we going to have to replace it. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that we can give it a new life!On another note. We’ve been trying to determine what type of tile this is exactly. Based on research, I’m assuming it’s porcelain, but then again, I’m no tile expert. Anyone have any ideas or know what it is?
