What quantity do you need?

Once you know what kind of tile you’d like, you’ll then have to work out how many tiles you are going to need to complete your project. Remember the bigger the tile the more wastage is needed. Also, if the design is intricate, then more tiles are needed.

What do I do to prepare the surface?

Once you have your tiles delivered, then the real work starts. Surface preparation is a must no matter what your project may be. If the floor surface is not flat, it may require screeding prior to laying the tiles. If you are tiling on a non-porous surface such as painted walls, you must prime the surface before installing the tiles. Where should you start laying tiles from?
