This video explains in easy-to-understand terms how to creating a tiled wall that’s durable, water-resistant and attractive. Starting with how to calculate the number of tiles for a given space, it tells you how to lay out your tiles, make a tile gauge, cut tiles to shape, apply adhesive, finish with grout and clean. There’s even advice on how to tile in and around a window recess.

Preparation & planning

Before you begin tiling, your wall surface needs to be sanded, cleaned and fully sealed. You also need to check whether the tiles themselves need sealing before they’re laid (it depends on what they’re made from). If you have to tile around a window, take this into account from the beginning.

Aftercare

After finishing your tiling project, use a grout protector spray to stop penetration by water, dirt, oil, grease and lime scale. Using this product will help to prolong the life of your grout and keep the area easy to clean.

Getting the job done - hints & tips

Make sure all surfaces are prepared before tiling. Porous surfaces should be prepared using primer before tiling. Always make sure your grout and adhesive is in date if you're using product which has been left over from another project.

Safety

Before screwing battens into the wall always check for pipes and wires which may be in the wall. If there are pipes or wires behind the walls where you are intending to screw down battens, make pencil lines to act as a guide rather than battens.
