From experienced tile professionals to part-time DIYs, there are differing opinions on whether to tile under or around the toilet. While either method will work, the vast majority seems to favor tiling under the toilet (check out the forum links below). Here are some top reasons why:
- Less cutting involved – less frustration trying to cut the tile up to the toilet.
- Easier to replace the toilet down the road especially if it has a different footprint.
- End result looks more professional.
We had a chance to get some feedback from Phil Green of Edge Strip Kits who has been a tile setter for over 42 years. He states, “As a professional Tile setter for over 42 years, I would say that I have never tiled AROUND a toilet. It’s just easier to pull it and then tile under it. This allows the toilet to be changed in the future with no additional call back for tile repairs. Another good reason for pulling the toilet and not cutting around it would be to replace the wax ring at this time. Many simple leaks can easily be repaired by changing the wax ring seal. If you tiled up to the toilet, you would not be able to notice this small leak until extensive damage had occurred.”
If you are considering laying tile for your bathroom, this would be the time to also consider adding Warmup electric radiant floor heating to keep those tiles luxuriantly warm during chilly days. A complete floor heating solution can cost as little as $372.00 (includes advanced 3iE Energy Monitoring Thermostat with GFCI) depending on your needs. Call us for details.
