Choose a practical area for the bathroom
Bathroom is the room where constantly concentrated moisture. She settles on the walls, accumulates in corners and niches, gets in those places you don't get to fix it. For example, if between the tub and the wall has at least a small gap, the water will penetrate during showering or other water procedures, and it leads to the appearance of fungus and mold. To avoid this, it's best to use angles for the bathroom. They are divided into two main types: the first are mounted on top of the tiles, the second stacked under it. Each of them has its advantages and disadvantages.
Overhead angles of PVC
A more common and economical option is the corner bathtub is made from PVC, which is installed over the edge of the bath and tiles. This method is suitable for those who want to change only the bath without spoiling the laid tile. The installation of such a floor you can clean. First you need to clean the surface where you intend to install the product from dust and dirt and then thoroughly dry it. Definitely need to fill the gap with sealant (now it is often used acrylic blend), let it dry. Measure the length and width of a bathtub, according to this crop the borders of the desired length. The edges of the tub to cover with masking tape so as not to stain it with glue. Apply to area for a bath of "liquid nails" and as much to press it to the surface. The harder and longer you press, the better it will be to keep the plinth. In the place of contact of the cutting edges is to install a special connecting elements. If after surgery, there were gaps, they should also be treated with sealant.
Area bath adhesive referred to overlay, but there is no need to use "liquid nails". Such a border is already applied adhesive layer, which shows its properties when heated.
With its relative low cost, this material has a number of drawbacks: over time, it can yellow from exposure to hot water, begin to come off, and subjected to mold propagation. Many users claim that the original view of a corner bath will last about a year.
The mounting area.
Area, which is installed under the tile, more practical, because it will last a long time and will be protected from moisture. However, its installation is carried out only during the walls, and preferably in the hands of experienced craftsmen. Of course, this affects the price, but the result will stay for about five years without any changes. Such corners are made of PVC or ceramic. First you need be sure to cover the tile, and the second can be used as an independent decorative element. The gaps between the tiles are sealed with special compound for protection of joints, grout, which is a long time to protect the area from the mold.
