Tile on a Budget?

Hi all,

I am trying to tile our shower on a budget, from the research I have done I am not finding a ton online with affordable tile. Any suggestions would be amazing! Thanks!

I wouldn’t try to tile on a budget. Ideally you’d want to use the foam core tile backer and it ain’t cheap. FRP is a good choice if you’re in a budget.

Thank you! I think after a little more research and understanding the prices I am willing to pay a little more to do tile... I have seen recommendations on using the polymer grout to prevent cracking, etc.

Any thoughts??

The tile backer, sealant, tile, thinset and grout was about $650.

When you figure the tile get 15% more than you need as measured.

When you saw tile wear eye protection especially if it’s glass tile like I used.

But how about colored mica in resin? You’d have to dry fit all the panels then resin flat, then assemble. It would be cheaper and lighter. Just a thought.
