Steps For Laying Straight Wall Tiles

How To Lay Wall Tiles

The walls in most homes are not perfect and that can make it difficult for you to lay wall tiles straight and not have the grout line looking crooked. So in order to begin tiling like a renovation expert just follow the steps below on how to lay wall tiles:
When laying wall tiles don't start at the floor because it may not be level and subsequently all of the rows of tiles above will be not straight.
Instead use a spirit level to draw a straight reference line lightly less than 1 tile width from the floor.
Half nail a straight piece of wood below this line and start laying the tiles in rows working upwards.
Use tile spacers to make sure that the grout lines are straight and even.
After the tiles are dry remove the piece of wood and lay the bottom row of tiles, cutting any of them if required to fit them against the uneven floor.
Finally remove the tile spacers and grout the gaps with an appropriate coloured grout.
