The wall tiles are a great way to uplift the design language of any area in your home, as these tiles are very durable and reliable with a touch of elegance. You must feel excited just to install the tiles, but you should first know how to install tiles like a pro.

We have come up with a detailed process for how you can also install tiles to give a sleek and stylish look to your home. In this blog, we cover all the tools and equipment you need for an attractive wall tile installation, the steps of the installation process and creative insights on the most beautiful and premium quality tiles.

Get All These Tools And Equipment

Before starting your creative journey of installing tiles on the wall, you must gather all these tools, equipment, and resources to ensure that all your investment in the process gives you the best result. The first and foremost thing you need is the best quality wall tiles for the dedicated area. The next thing that comes is the tile adhesive, another essential material to ensure the tiles’ durability and longevity.

Other things include a leveller, notch trowel, hand gloves, tile cutter [diamond saw], tile grout, measuring tape, battens, grout float, and sponge. All these materials and equipment will help you lay the tiles perfectly on the wall so your home has an aesthetic upgrade.

Let’s Beautify The Walls

The first thing you need for a perfect wall tile installation is to prepare the wall for tile installation. This means appropriately scraping the wall to remove any layer of dust, mould or any kind of damage that may affect the installed tiles at a later stage.

1. Layout Planning

Firstly, select the tiles you want to fix on your walls to make them beautiful. Use a chalk line and measuring tapes to mark the middle lines for the area where you want to fix the tiles. This will give you an idea by dividing the area into smaller sections.

2. Install A Batten

Install the batten below the first line of the tiles if needed, as most of the home surfaces are not levelled correctly. This batten will help you to keep the tiles straight.

3. Cutting Tiles

Use the diamond saw to cut the tiles according to your requirements, and make sure that you do not cut a whole tile for just a tiny part. After measuring the tile area, cut the tiles to meet the edges and corners of the wall perfectly.

4. Mixing Adhesive

Now that you have all the tiles ready, mix the adhesive according to the instructions given by the adhesive company on the pack. Once mixed up, allow it to rest for a while and mix it again. This will eradicate the lumps in the adhesive.

5. Applying Adhesive

Apply a consistent adhesive layer on the wall where you will fix the tiles. Use a notch trowel to spread the adhesive evenly on the wall so that the tile sticks perfectly to it.

6. Placing The Tiles

Now comes the precision task of placing the tiles on the walls. Ensure that pressure is evenly applied to the tiles to fix the wall so that the adhesive sticks to it appropriately. Place the tile spacers between tiles as you go up.

7. Grout Mixing

Once the tiles have been placed, let the tile adhesive set, and for the time being, you can mix up the grout according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

8. Spread The Grout

Use a grout float to spread the grout over the tiles to fill the gaps. Use an appropriate grout to fill the tile gaps and ensure every tile gap is adequately sealed.

9. Clean The Grout

Now, use a sponge to clean the excess grout off the tiles, leaving you with clean and precisely placed tiles with gaps filled using grout. Let the grout cure according to the time stated by the grout manufacturer.

 10. Apply The Sealant

Once the grout has cured, apply a grout sealant, which will prevent mould from growing in the gaps and increase the durability of the grout for an extended period of time.
