How to Tile a Bathtub to Make It Look Like a Spa

185K Views
When we were looking to buy our house one of the major things that we were looking for was an awesome master suite. And in that suite our master bathroom HAD to have a nice big tub. When we found our house I immediately fell in love with the corner tub and it was my favorite thing in the room. Well we decided to redo it and change out the tile and now I love the bathtub 10x more! I seriously cannot stop looking at it, it's so pretty and I love the outcome!

Time: 3 Days Cost: $150 Difficulty: Medium

This is how we did it. We did the demo while we were taking off our floors. But we took off the tiles and then put on backer board onto the tub.

We then grouted, caulked and sealed the tiles. Then we painted and decorated the tub area and now we have a spa like tub!

    Nice job especially since I know how much work is involved. Call me old fashioned but I liked the before better but that's just my opinion! Each to their own.

      I'm with you. I like the new version, but the old one was in good shape and not that outdated to the point I wouldn't have been motivated to do all that work. I'm the same same when I watch house buying shows. The youngsters are complaining about
