Updating Those Old Tiles

Updating a bathroom may mean replacing a wall section when there are some worn or cracked tiles. Here is a clever idea from a New York traveler who collected some favorite tiles and used them to personalize an older bathroom. This is a bit of creativity that could also be applied in kitchens. There are so many tiles to choose from, and this is an inexpensive solution. Have you seen the tiles used in similar ways?

Grant Schneider, With many tile choices, the kitchen would be a perfect place for this kind of personalization.

Will Hamm, When someone needs a "quick fix," this is better than broken, cracked, and chipped tiles.

Good wishes are accepted any day. Hope your Christmas was a good one.

Hannah Williams Pretty sure it was the original tiles that were probably worn or damaged.

Lynn B. Friedman Yep, the next owner would either like the NY tiles or redo this older bathroom.

It’s occasionally good to freshen things up like this more often than we think. Tiles, carpet, and anything else under the sun. :)

Lynn B. Friedman I think they might give it a change unless they really really really love it.
