A good tile installer needs good tile installation tools

To some extent, tile installation is an art. It takes years of practice and an eye for good design to plan a layout and merge tiles of different textures and thickness together in an appealing pattern. But, if a painter can use substitutes to create his art, such as coffee grounds, wine, or even flower petals, when it comes to tile installation tools there’s no room for creativity. Tile tools are designed for specific uses during the installation process. Trying to find an alternative will, in best case scenario, considerably increase the amount of time needed to complete a project. Worst case scenario, it can damage the tile, the substitute tool, or you might end up hurting yourself. That’s not to say that you should purchase all the tiling tools you can find. Instead, you need to make sure that the equipment you have can help you complete the task at hand with ease and efficiency. With that in mind, here’s a list of ten crucial tile installation tools every professional installer must have in his toolbox. Make sure to check them off your personal list.
