Veterans of flooring tile setup might think that wall tile setup is a breeze. After all, it’s nothing more than a vertical flooring.

However, wall tile installation has its own set of guidelines that you dare break at your own danger. The penalty for poorly installed wall tile is a lifetime of having to look at the stuff. So, let’s take a look at the basics of wall tile installation that will make whatever go a lot smoother, less discouraging, and less pricey.

 

Prospective Issues of Wall Tile Setup

 

  • Vertical (wall) tiles are more visible than horizontal (flooring) tiles.
  • Vertical tiles can slide before they are strongly set into place.
  • Walls, windows, doors, and other recommendation points can produce aesthetic havoc with wall tile.

 

Tips for Tiling a Wall

 

  1. Hang a Batten Board to Prevent Tile Slippage
    A batten board helps you start your bottom-most course or row of tiles. If you’re dealing with four-inch tiles, your batten board would begin 3 inches off the flooring.
  2. Install the Wall Tile in a Pyramid Shape
    You’ve got that bottom row of tile. Do you stack the tile vertically, one column at a time?
    The best way is to organize your wall tile in a pyramid shape. If it seems complicated, try this: Install tiles one through 4 as directed. Then every subsequent “row” is a procedure of “draping over” the pyramid, back and forth. So:

    1. Tiles one, 2, three, and 4.
    2. Start your first “curtain” on either left or best side, and stroll it up, over, and down the other side.
    3. Repeat your 2nd “curtain” in the opposite instructions.
  3. Examine Your Flooring for Level and Walls for Plumb
    Tiles are square. Holding a bubble level to a straight, 6- or eight-foot board, make sure that both walls and the flooring are plumb (vertical) and level.
    If your plumb or level is off by no more than a half-inch over the course of eight feet, it will reveal in your tile setup. If it is off by more than a half-inch, you need to correct the wall or flooring.
  4. Use No Tiles Less Than Half-Wide
    Along the outside of your tile field, any tile “slivers” (tiles that are less than half the width of the tile itself) will significantly show the out-of-plumb wall. You can treat this by making sure that the tiles are positioned so that no “slivers” are used.

Wall tile installation has its own set of rules that you dare break at your own threat. The charge for poorly set up wall tile is a life time of having to look at the things. Let’s look at the essentials of wall tile installation that will make whatever go a lot smoother, less discouraging, and less costly.
