Our outdoor patio area has ceramic tiles that are as slick as glass whenever someone steps on them with wet feet from the pool. It's also very bad news when I walk around in my Croc flip flops while watering the plants! :) Seriously, though, these tiles are a very real hazard at my house that concerns me anytime we have a pool party. We bought a product and applied it last year that was supposed to make it non-skid. It didn't work for the long-term. For now we have 4 rugs out

I agree with those that suggested a special sealer to add slip-resistance.
I can do it on my own. I aquired tiles and a toilet, but need a pedestal sink yet. I really want my whirl pool bathtub for my husbands health reasons I need to knock out a wall. ,, I fear this might get costly..

Hi Tonya. DO yourself a favor and don't try to tackle the bathroom remodel on your own. Many
mistakes can, and will, be made including the probability of a water leak.
Consider this about the whirlpool tub. If your husband's health is failing, will he be able to get in the tub? It has been my experience, personally with my father and professionally with clients, that getting into and out of a whirlpool can be difficult for someone with any physical ailments. I have a feeling that you won't use the tub as much as you may want to.
If you intend on having some type of lift system to assist your hubby in and out of the tub then maybe he will be able to utilize the tub. Otherwise, you may be spending money on something that will not offer an reward.
I'm sorry your husband is not feeling well, here's hoping that he rreturns to health.
