If you are about to tackle that bathroom tiling job you keep putting off, you will first need to procure all the tools and equipment. Ask any pro tiler and they’ll tell you that without the right equipment, good tiling is impossible, and with that in mind, here are the essential items to prepare before tiling the bathroom.
- Tile Cutter – This device has a sliding are and a square frame in which to sit the tile. Then you simply run the cutter up the guiding arm, which ensures that every cut is square. If the thought isn’t so appealing, there are always affordable tiling services in Hammersmith and with a professional touch, the bathroom will look stunning.
- Tile Spacers – Critical for a square finish, the small, white plastic tile spacers ensure an even gap for the grouting. Buy more than you need, as you can make use of them in the future.
- Grouting Bucket – Mixing the grout in a bucket is the best solution, and don’t mix too much, as you might not get to use it all.
- Adhesive Trowel – This will ensure an even film of adhesive is applied to each tile and it does take a while to get the hang of how to use the apparatus. Avoid applying any more than one square metre, which will allow you time to set the tiles.
With all of the above and some cleaning materials, if you work methodically, there’s no reason why your tiling won’t look professional.
