Tiles Laying Instruction

Step - 1

Lay the first tile square at the crossing of the reference lines. For best results, lightly press and twist the tiles to set them in the mortar.

Step - 2

Place tile spacers at the edges of the first tile.

Step - 3

Continue laying tiles in the same manner along the reference lines, then add spacers.

Step - 4

Once you have completed a work section, use a rubber mallet and carpenter’s level to level the tile.

Step - 5

Remove any excess mortar with a damp sponge.

Step - 6

Continue applying thinset mortar and laying the tile in work sections in the same manner. Make adjustments as needed so the tiles are aligned straight, especially along the longest dimension of the room where variations will show.

Step - 7

Apply thinset mortar and set the cut tile in position. Add tile spacers as needed.

Step - 8

Allow the thinset mortar to dry for at least 24 hours or as recommended by the manufacturer before continuing.
