How to tile a bathroom floor: Planning and preparing
You will need to choose the correct adhesive for the tiles that are being laid. There are different adhesives for different tile types and floors, so it is important to choose the correct product in order to ensure a good bond. Always check the instructions on the adhesive pack.
Floors must be flat, clean and dry. Repair any holes or cracks in the surface with an appropriate filler. Prepare the floor in accordance with the instructions on the adhesive. Measure the length and width of the space you wish to tile to work out the total area. Divide this number by the pack coverage of your tiles. This will tell you how many tiles you need. Add an extra 10% to allow for cuts and breakages.
Buy all of your tiles from the same batch to avoid color variations. You should also mix all of your tiles up before you start so there aren’t any blocks of different shades. It is also recommended to buy the grout from one batch to avoid color variations.
