Demolishing tiles, Hydroisolation for bathroom

Updated: 3 August, 2022 seen 22

A few weeks ago I did the tile job in the kitchen and hallway for our Vilgāle apartment. In the end, I was not happy with the result, not happy with the tile job (which could be done better), and not satisfied with the visual looks. 

At one point I decided to list this apartment for sale as it is, with asking price EUR 25,000. As I didn't get any request during more than 7 days, I decided I still want to sell this flat but I will make it look better, will finish bathroom. 

One of the first things I decided to remove tiles in the hallway and install laminate flooring. I will leave tiles just in the kitchen.

I was not happy how tiles looked together with laminate flooring and decided to decrease the overall surface with tiles and leave them just in the kitchen area. the actually tile removal was not hard, but bit complicated, and required some arm strength.

In parallel I started hydroisolation in bathroom. once done I'm looking to tile here too.

I was actually looking for some epoxy flooring, but was not able to find what I need and decided to continue with tiling bathroom floor.
