    Glue them back on is the obvious answer but we need a bit more info. What room are they in, what wall surface,

    type of tiles, how old?

    It's in the bathroom wall.. It's about 10yrs old I think.. Is it better to just glue it back or just replace every tile?

    Tiles if installed properly should lasts 20 years+. You need to ascertain how many are loose. Tap them with the

    handle of a screwdriver or the edge of a coin. The loose ones will have a hollow rattly sound. The stuck ones will

    sound more solid. If its only one or two loose get some premixed wall tile adhesive and restick them. Do you have

    any spare tiles as its common for them to break when you try to remove them ? If most are loose it time to start

    budgeting for a new bathroom.
