Self Installation Of Bathroom Wall Tiles With Glue

April 12, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 187

Sealed ceramic tiles which do not have moisture can be used for the bathroom. These should be less than one fourth inch in thickness. Laying the wall tiles ourselves will save us some money. This can become a small project for ourselves and create a beautiful and creative pattern. Installation is easy, provided certain rules of laying are followed and done with a lot of patience. Measurements have to be taken accurately, thus ensuring proper layering.

The midpoint of the wall needs to be identified. A vertical line should be drawn using a level, till the middle of the wall. A horizontal line, which is one fourth inch above the height of the tile, needs to be drawn. The glue now can be spread along the bottom using an adhesive trowel. This glue should span the whole bottom of the wall, till the horizontal line. Once the glue is applied, a pattern of lines that is horizontal and vertical can be seen in the glue. Across the vertical central line, press two tiles into the glue on the wall. The tiles should be twisted slightly so that they are tightly sealed to the glue. The spacing of the tiles should be maintained by using spacers. A space of at least one fourth inch should be left from the bottom of the tile to the floor. Install the rest in the same way. If they need to be cut, use a tile cutter, for placing at the ends.

After all the tiles are installed, let them dry overnight. Once this is dry, grout needs to be spread evenly. This has to spread by starting to work from the tip and in even motions downwards. This can be done properly using a grout float. Press the grout into the lines and scrape the excess immediately. A damp sponge is used to wipe the excess grout. Once this process is over, the wall needs to be cleaned well.

Installing the bathroom wall tiles using guides can be easy. This whole process has to be done with a lot of patience. We can design an innovative pattern and buy tiles accordingly to install. On the internet, many websites have planners that guide us properly. Using such guides and planners the walls can be made to look new. Bathroom tiles tend to accumulate dirt and stains. Whenever, there is a need, they can be reinstalled in a simple process. The time and effort spent on them will definitely show on the end result. By installing a new set, the whole appearance of the bathroom can be transformed. Removal of old tiles can also be done by us. Once the old ones are removed, new set is installed with ease. While buying a new set, buy a few with different patterns and styles. Make a unique design that is beautiful and install them accordingly.
