The last part of my bathroom remodel project was a new tile floor. I ripped up the most recent layer of tile, but didn’t want to disturb the original 1950’s tile floor. The bathroom was built around the floor, so it was easier just to tile over it.
A couple of things to consider if you want to tile over an existing tile floor are:
- The old tiles all need to be secured to the floor. If they are starting to pop up, you either need to reattach them or pull them all up.
- The old tiles need to be smooth without corners sticking up or high points. If you try to tile over an uneven surface with new ceramic tile, they could break.
- The overall height of the floor needs to be able to accommodate another layer of tile (think transitions in the doorway and any moldings in the room).
Luckily for me, all of these things were in my favor.

Earlier this week, I wrote about how I love refreshing my space for the new year. It’s a little sad to take all of the holiday decorations down, but I also love when my house feels so clean and open again! Although I don’t go into full spring decor, I do love bringing in lighter colors and a little bit of greenery to brighten everything up.
In order to balance out the more spring-forward pieces, I try to incorporate a lot white as a neutral. I also still love the look of terra-cotta and might add a few more pieces once my January spending freeze is over!
Keep reading to see how I have refreshed my space!
