If it s just a soaking tub you can buy the tub first and then build a tiled deck to drop it into.
Can i build a bath tub out of tiles.
Probably the easiest is to build a tub with concrete backer board and tile it.
A homemade tub will generally cost more than a purchased tub but can be shaped to fit an unusual space or made longer taller or wider than standard tubs.
Keep an eye on plumbing and tiles and cut off any mastic causing obstruction.
Not to mention that tile is not the most comfortable product to sit on.
You can however tile the walls or platform surrounding the tub just not the tub itself.
Tubs can be built from wood concrete or tile covered masonry.
Is possible but you would need to be very careful.
This will help keep your first line of tiles level and stay in place just make sure the board is straight.
Slow careful process.
Once you ve planned out your layout you can begin to set tiles on the shower wall.
Building your own bathtub is not an inexpensive or easy process but it can be done.
For a shower enclosure extend the tile and the backerboard at least 6 inches above the showerhead.
Be careful not to puncture the waterproof membrane when installing mortar over it.
For a tub surround only install the backerboard and tile 12 inches above the tub.
There is standing water in a tub while you are bathing and if there is just a tiny crack in the grout then the standing water would have a field day behind.
I would never make a tub out of tile.
To help hide the awkward appearance of an out of level tub make the bottom row of tiles at least three fourths of a tile high.
Pull bath out carefully.
No reason why it shouldn t work if the walls and floor of the tub are thick enough and you use the proper tile cement and grout as used for swimming pools if the romans can do it no reason why you.
What was there before was this.
You will also have to worry about getting proper pitch in the tub etc.
Wow i have no idea what half of that means.
Depending on the size and weight of your tiles you may benefit from screwing a starter board into the cement board.
If you plan to shower there you may want to get a tub that has a tile flange on three sides and frame to it.
Cut around mastic between bathe and tiles using stanley knife mastic removing product.
Yoiu need a spanner and grips for this.
Hi not a problem.
