Tips and tricks:

Setting Out

Lay dry tiles on the floor and arrange so that difficult cuts and awkward corners are avoided.

How many tiles do I need?

When calculating how many tiles you need, work out how many will cover the area to be tiled – and then add 10% for breakages. You can always return the extra tiles if you don’t use them.

Cutting Tiles

For awkward cuts, it’s recommended that you make a template out of card and trace around it. Always remember to wear goggles and gloves when cutting tiles.

Spacers

Use spacers to ensure regular spacing of tiles. Occasionally check with a spirit level to ensure the tiles remain level.

Checking

Occasionally lift a tile that has been recently laid to ensure full adhesive contact is being achieved.

2. Bed the tiles firmly into the adhesive using a twisting action to ensure full contact.

3. Tile spacers should be used to ensure regular spacing.

4. Remove surplus adhesive immediately with a damp cloth.

5. Adhesive sets in 3 hours.
