Tile Store West Palm Beach: Installing It By Yourself

November 09, 2022 1 min read

Another great thing about tiles is that aside from buying it yourself at a Tile Store West Palm Beach, you can even do the installation on your own. It’s that easy!

  • Keep your tools ready – Make sure you have all the tools at hand such as measuring tape, a carpenter's square and a bubble level. You should also be prepared with the tiles and all you need to space them and put them together: tile spaces, a tile cutter, a trowel, and a putty knife. Then you must get your adhesives ready: tile bonding material, thin set mortar or tile adhesive, the sealant, the grout and a rubber grout float.

  • Prepare the subfloor – You need to clean the sub-floor thoroughly and check it for cracks. If you do find cracks, you must repair them. If any crack is too large to repair, that section of the floor must be replaced completely.

  • Install the tiles – Start with the center and move outwards with each ceramic tile. After the tiles have set, complete the process by applying the grout. Remember that the grout must be of the same color as the tiles you have chosen.
