- One option is to layout your Floor Tiles prior to fixing them and see how different layers can work
- Try a diagonal or herringbone look rather than opting for a linear or square approach
- Another option is to use the same Floor Tile on your walls to give the illusion of more space
How to Cut
When tiling your floor, you will find that you may have to cut some of your Floor Tiles, so they fit directly up against the wall. Follow these steps when cutting;
- First start by marking your Floor Tile to show how much needs cutting off (leave 1 or 2mm for grout)
- Place the tile in a manual tile cutter and line up the mark you have made with the edge of the cutter
- Score the tile along the marked line
How to Lay
If you’re tiling a room, you need to consider tiling only half the room and when it’s dry tile the rest. This will take slightly longer but will provide you with a hard-wearing surface. Read our below steps on how to lay floor tiles.
- Start off in the centre of the room. Pour enough tile adhesive to cover a square metre of floor. Spread the tile adhesive evenly using a trowel
- Draw the serrated edge of the trowel back through the tile adhesive to form ridges to create a level surface
- Place your first tile in position and work outwards placing the other tiles in a row
- Fit plastic tile spacers between each floor tile to ensure equal spacing
- Complete the first ¼ of the room until you can no longer place anymore whole tiles
- Repeat this process until the entire floor is tiled
- After you have placed all the whole tiles down and your floor is dry tile your edges
How to Grout
Grouting your tiles doesn’t only make them look nice it also seals your tiles to protect them from dirt and moisture.
- Apply the grout using a grout spreader and force it into the gaps between the tiles. Work at a 45-degree angle.
- Tool it into the joints whilst the grout is still workable
- Make sure you wipe off any excess with a damp cloth
- Let the grout sit for the recommended time 5. When dry, polish over the tiles with a cloth.
