We all know that the procedure of installing
tiles is known as tiling. You need to take extra
caution while tiling your home whether you are
doing it for the first time or have done it
before.   So we have collected a few tips on what
you have to DO and what you DONT have to do
while DIY tiling in your home.
  • DO's
  • Properly Asses/Measure The Room Where You Would
    Do Tiling
  • The trick here is to assess and measure the room
    accurately so you can evaluate the number of
    tiles you have to purchase. Try to get the
    correct numbers of tiles youll require to cover
    the entire room considering the accurate
    measurements. Buy a few additional tiles also
    since you never know what number of tiles would
    be shortened and some may unintentionally get
    broken. It's alright if youve purchased many
    additional tiles since you can store and have
    them replaced with the broken ones whenever

  • Make A Checklist Of The Materials, Tools And
    Equipment You'll Require
  • You can search online to find the list of things
    that youll need while installing the tiles in
    your home. Yet, just in case you dont have full
    confidence on the online content, then find a
    suitable tile sealing and installation company
    based in Sydney for the best advice.

  • Figure Out The Kind Of Tiles That Will Utilise
  • If youre planning to install tiles in your
    washroom, then buy tiles that come with a no-slip
    feature. However, it's not so important if you're
    tiling kitchen wall and backsplashes. For
    kitchen, polished tiles will be a better option.

  • Utilise Tile Spacers
  • Tile spacers are actually tiny plastic bits
    utilised to space tiles symmetrically and
    appropriately. By doing layout and spacing of the
    tiles utilising tiles spacers will eventually
    prove helpful in every area. Youll get perfectly
    lined up tiles that are fitted equally apart from
    each other.

  • DON'TS
  • Dont Walk On The Tiles Before The Cement Or
    Adhesive Dries Out
  • Remember, your patience will deliver amazing
    results to you. Dont be tempted to walk on the
    newly installed tiles before the adhesive or
    cement dries out completely. You might end up
    doing the whole installation again just because
    you havent waited long enough.

  •  Dont Buy Hastily
  • While doing the shopping for the tiles, first
    shortlists a few designs and then choose from
    them. Think if the tile youre planning to buy
    for your kitchen or bathroom is going to match
    its surroundings.

  • Dont Forget To Check The Sealing Capacity Of The
  • Some tiles manufacturers offer pre-sealed tiles,
    while other dont. You can get help from a tile
    sealing Sydney based company for more info about
    different kinds of tiles and how sealing can be
    done before tiling.

  • Dont Ignore Water Damage
  • While tiling, if you come across an area where
    water damage is present, then repair the damaged
    area before covering it with tile. If you dont
    have much knowledge in this field, then its
    better to hire a tile cleaning Sydney based firm
    that offer complete tile installation, sealing
    and cleaning services.
