Questions about tile removal
Can you salvage tiles?
Some tiles can be salvaged after removal if they’re intact. Wondering how to remove wall tiles without breaking them? Work slowly and gently, especially when prizing them away from the surface. However, some tiles will be firmly stuck down, so breaking them is unavoidable.
Providing you have enough salvaged tiles, they can be reused elsewhere in your home. Broken tiles should be disposed of, or you can use them to create mosaic designs on plant pots, coasters, placemats and table tops. Take care when working with broken tiles, and file down any sharp edges.
