Chalk - to straight tile lines
Pointed/Square Notched Towels - for spreading mortar
Grout Sponge & Float - for scrubbing lingering mortal and applying mortar
Wet Tile Saw - reducing breakage when going through ceramic
Cement Board Underlayment - If necessary, you'll need to install an underlayment to ensure that the floor is leveled and secure.
Measure the floor's dimensions.
Measure across the room to the center, placing spacers between the tiles to ensure proper distance.
Always perform a dry run with your tiles. Lay them out in the pattern that you intend to install.
Install the center tile first, using the recommended adhesive.
Install all remaining tiles.
Allow the adhesive to cure overnight.
Mix the grout until its consistency is comparable to peanut butter. Then apply onto the tiles with your grout float, working it into the joints.
Clean your tile with your damp sponge paying careful attention not pull grout form lines. Allow grout to cure for several days while continuing to gently polish over it with damp sponge.
Don't walk on the tile before the adhesive has thoroughly dried. Avoid starting a tile installation on the side of the room to ensure your lines are straight. Always use tile spacers when laying your tile. Mistakes happen. Be sure to purchase a little extra material. A wet saw is a must when laying tile.
