o Plan which Tile
o Shop around if you want to save
o Prepare the surface for a durable work
o Lay the tiles
o Finishing touches
This step is often underestimated and sometimes even forgotten (can you believe it?). Planning your ceramic tile installation from A to Z is one of the most important steps for a smooth, easy and trouble-free installation of bathroom tiles.
Some things to take into account are:
o Compliance tiles
o Pattern/colour of the tiles
The size of the tiles
The size of the area to be tiled. (It's critical data that will be very important to know how much tile, grout, etc., you have to buy)
Adhesive, mortar or grout according to your needs
Not all of the ceramic tile installations are the same, installation of different tiles may require different mortar or grout. DO NOT feel ashamed to ask the supplier for advice or help in calculating how much you need. They will be happy to help you because they tend to make a sale.
Shop around if you want to Save!
This is not as difficult as the first step, however, when the budget is tight it can be difficult to find the right tile for the ceramic tile installation you want. You will have to make some compromises and so do not get carried away by the beauty of some of the ceramic tiles. Prices can vary a lot between different tiles, so some end up rather expensive for only a few square meters.
Always shop around, it is never easy. Just sit in front of the computer and use the internet. Use local directories to find a supplier near you and pay them a visit.
