    Preventing tiles from changing colour


    My shower tiles have changed colour. Why has this happened? How can I stop it happening again?

    "If the tiles were light and the entire tile is darker, now it may be the fault of the glue, if it was dark. My advice is light tile. light glue."

    "Tiles only really change colour when they are subject to excess water ingress. I would guess that being in the shower area, water has found a way behind the tiles whether that be through failed grout or Silicone. I would firstly assess these areas and consider the plan of action from your findings. Hope this helps."

    "Had the tiles been sealed prior to fitting. This is normally the case case with tile discolouration."

    "Hi there.

    Tiles will never change color but what would normally happen is scale building up after a period oft time due to hard water.

    Would need cleaning regularly."

    "Is it the grout that has changed colour or the actual tiles? I have only seen tiles fade in conservatory’s with sunlight, never in a bathroom! If it is the grout it will be down to cleaning products you are using, it could even be down to sponge or cloth used?"
