Modern tiling solutions for Hale Barns mansion

BAL provided a full system tiling solution for the transformation of a high-spec six bedroom mansion in Hale Barns, Cheshire.

The project, which was shortlisted for The Tiling Association Awards in the Best Use of Tile in a Domestic Environment category, was completed over a six month period by Dave Stott from Elite Tiling Ltd.

The project displays great examples of modern tiling including a mosaic wet room and complex hexagonal tiling in one of en-suite renovations.

BAL tile adhesives, grouts, sealants and preparation products were used throughout, including in a family bathroom and four en-suites.

BAL worked alongside tiling contractors throughout the project, including providing specification support from BAL’s Technical Advisory Service and on-site support from BAL’s expert Product Support Technicians.

“BAL were absolutely brilliant from start to finish, visiting the site to assist with product specification and technical advice,” said Dave.
“I have always used BAL as they never let me down.”

Fixed with BAL Supercover Rapidset Flexible, BAL Single Part Flexible and grouted with BAL Micromax2 Gunmetal, the family bathroom features 300 x 600mm Purestone Grigio Natural Rectified Porcelain tiles fixed in a brick bond pattern on both walls and floors.

The area around the bath and shower was tiled with textured Purestone Grigio Muretto 3D Décor tiles fixed with BAL Single Part Flexible.

Situated at the front of the house, the 14m2 Ensuite 1 features 266 x 230mm hexagonal tiles (Alchimia Mix 1 Bianco Grigio and Alchimia Esagono Bianco) for the walls, floors and shower area.

Before tiling commenced, the floor was primed with BAL Bond SBR, Wedi boards at 6mm were installed and under floor heating mat laid and covered with BAL Fibrebase levelling compound, before the tiles were set-out and fixed.

The finished walls and floors were grouted with BAL Micromax2 Gunmetal and sealed with matching silicone.

En-suite 2 is tiled with large format ceramic tiles (Modern Colour White and Modern Colour Silver) in brick bond pattern on the walls and glazed porcelain on the floor fixed with BAL Single Part Flexible and BAL Supercover Rapidset.

The bathroom was also finished with BAL Micromax2 in Gunmetal and colour-matched BAL Micromax Sealant.

Tiled with book-matched marble by Isaac Davila from Rockford, Fior di Bosco and Rosa Auria Extra, the 22m2 master en-suite was fixed with BAL Single Part Flexible on the walls and BAL Supercover Rapid Set on the floors, the en-suite features a walk-in shower with a brown marble book-matched seat and recess.

The attic guest en-suite was cladded with a tile backer-board and double scratch coats before being tiled with 5 mm x 25 mm Stone Glass Mix White mosaic tiles and Petrified White Lion Core Natural Porcelain Tiles fixed with BAL Supercover Rapidset and grouted in a brick bond pattern.
