1. Ensure floor is clean, free of dust and
grease, scraped and wiped down.
2. Measure the room in both directions;
eg. A to B, C to D. Divide by two to find
the centre and mark with chalk lines.
3. Place a row of tiles and place spacers
along the centre lines to each wall to check
that the tiles will lay evenly across the floor.
4. It may be necessary to shift the positions
of the tiles away from the centre line, to
enable complete tiles to be laid at the entry
to the room. This will ensure cut tiles are
in less conspicuous areas of the room,
ensure cut tiles are no less than half.
5. Preparation is necessary to ensure an
aesthetic result with minimal cutting.
Once the layout is finalised, layout all tiles
to determine where cuts will be required.
Mark a chalk line at this point then cut the
tiles and lay them in position. The cut
tiles will give a straight edge.
6. Work from the straight edge, checking
tiles are square as you proceed.
Allow adhesive to dry and remove
spacers before grouting.
