The work of the master on laying tiles always flies to the owners into a penny. So why then overpay, if all repair work can be done yourself? If a man grows his hands from a “right” place, he will be able to quickly and beautifully lay the tile in the bathroom, install hatches under the tile and wipe the seams. Our article will help to figure out how to do it.
Choose tiles and begin to create
First you should choose tiles. It is better to entrust a woman, because it is she who can subtly feel which color will fit into your apartment most harmoniously. And there will be no complaints about the man after. Purchase tiles costs 5% more from the required amount. In the process of laying, the material may suffer. Another advice from experienced builders – in a small bathroom it is better to choose a small tile of light tones.
In order to lay the tile, stock up on the following set of materials:
construction level, ruler;
brush and gear spatula;
stem for grouting seams;
grinding for seams;
The most important stage is preparatory. Tile walls should be perfectly even. If plaster was used for alignment, then go to the tile laying stage after 2 weeks. Plaster should dry well.
The next stage is a primer. After it dries, proceed to styling. In order to stir the glue for tiles, use a drill with a nozzle for mixing. This is the only way you will achieve a homogeneous mass of glue. In order to determine the level of tiles, use the building level. Start laying tiles from the second row, smearing glue on the wall. So that the tile does not break, do not press it too much. Use crosses to determine the same distance between tiles. Wipe excess glue immediately after laying the tiles so that it does not have time to dry out, and do not forget about the hatch under the tile practice.
