Applications of Tile Drill Bits

Drilling holes into tiles may not sound appealing, but it is a vital part of building a new bathroom. Most builders today prefer to install their bathroom fittings, fixtures, tapware, and accessories on top of their tiles. This brings added water protection between joints, and assures a more immaculate, professional finish.

More examples of these applications in the bathroom are:

  • Fitting in bathroom fittings, fixtures and accessories to tiles or drywall
  • Attaching electrical wiring or plumbing
  • Hanging up a dryer
  • Shelves

Diamond Tipped Drill Bits – The Gold Standard in Tile Drilling

Diamond tipped tile drill bits are more expensive, strong and durable. They offer the best precision for drilling through hard porcelain tiles without shattering them.

Carbide Tipped Drill Bits – Cost Effective Tile Drilling

With a carbide tip, these tile drill bits are not as strong and durable as diamond tipped drill bits, but they can provide strong results with focus and patience. These tile drill bits are well suited for drilling into ceramic tiles with a softer base.

Get the Best Results When Drilling Tiles

For home renovators, drilling holes into your beautiful bathroom or kitchen tiles can sound very daunting. Here are some tips from Bonnyrigg Tiles designed to help you get the best results.

  • Always check to make sure the wall you are drilling through does not have water or electricity cables behind the tile.
  • Use masking tape to mark an ‘x’ over the area that needs to be drilled and mark the spot with a pen. The masking tape helps you get more traction to drill through the usually glazed and hardened top surface. So should your hand slip a little, the tile drill bit won’t cause damage to the surrounding tile surface.
  • Drill slowly and consistently to ensure clean, precise results with no damage.
  • While drilling, make sure the drill doesn’t overheat, so that tiles and fixtures don’t smoke, heat up or burn.
