In the process of replacing a bath, several of the tiles have been
damaged. All the damage is confined to the first two rows.
Has anyone got some ideas for sourcing matching tiles or ways of
covering up the damaged ones without it looking awful?
Your ideas much appreciated
I can be extremely hard to find tiles to replace ones that are say more than
10 years old.
I've done it by going around all the outlets and asking them if they have
any old stock and even rang the makers, if you can find out who they are.
The modern fashion for all white tiles in bathrooms does make it easy to
source matching ones.
Alt. maybe consider replacing the two rows with a complementary colour
Another point for others is to try to avoid damage to the tiles when you
take the old bath out.
Admittedly, this is very difficult if bath is fitted between 2 walls.
It can be made easier by lowering the bath on its jacking supports they all
seem to have, and pulling it out sideways.
Another tip is after tiling round a bath store the spare whole tiles under
it - you never know when they will come in handy.
