Can anyone help me please? We had someone do some tiling for us and for whatever reason they didn't tile the window ledge telling us that it 'would look better' with a piece of oak to form the window ledge. We think that he didn't want the bother of cutting the tiles as they are very thick, but that doesn't help us. Now we don't know what to do. Can you have an oak window ledge? Will it not swell in a bathroom? And won't it look stupid! We are stuck and don't know how to finish off our bathroom. Any help gratefully received.
if you have a nice new white suit why not fit a piece of upvc fascia board to the window seal it looks very clean and is easy to wipe down and needs no maintainence just cut to size and glue down (assuming you have upvc windows that is) hope this helps
I had wooden window sills in my bathroom and kitchen and I tiled them both. It was a fairly simple matter to cut down the overhang of the sill and then I tiled around and over the edge easily.. It looked far better than if I had left the sill on view.
Hi Cafetorioum. I suspect it means "not for marine use below the waterline". "Yacht varnish" is often just another name for glossy exterior varnish. You can tell if it's a specialist yacht varnish - your wallet will be considerably lighter! You could use it above the waterline if you want. (Although not, as several land lubbers have discovered, on the deck itself. Becomes as slippery as an ice rink once wet, which, lets face, is about 30 seconds after leaving the quay.)
