How to Tile a Bathroom - A Beginner's Guide.

Renovating a bathroom can be a major upgrade for a home. Learning how to tile a shower yourself is a great way to do this while saving yourself a lot of money. Using tile doesn't have to be expensive, and it can look great and last a long time if done properly. A big part is making sure you level your tiles correctly from the start. The rest is straight forward.

Prepare to Tile

1. First you want to measure the length and width of the shower area with a tape. Multiply these numbers by two and you'll have the square footage you need to purchase in tile. Note, it's a good idea to buy 10% more than you need for breakage.

2. Normally you would nail a batten in place at the base of the wall where you plan to tile. This allows you to level the first row to tiles and support them once they're in place. This can be dangerous as you could burst pipes or puncture the vapor barrier. Use TileGo to make this step simple and avoid any damage.

3. Only mix enough thinset mortar that you think you'll need for 30 minutes of work, otherwise it will become dry and brittle if left in the open.

4. Spread the mortar using a notched trowel over the area of your first row of tiles. The ridges in the mortal will help adhere the tile securely in place.

Begin Tiling

5. Position the first tile into place, gently wiggling it to push out any air bubbles. Insert tile spacers at the corners of the tile and add another section of tile. Repeat until you reach the wall.

6. Here you'll likely need to cut tiles to fit the last tile in place. Use a scribe, a tile cutter or a wet saw depending on how much cutting you'll need to do. If you come to a fixture use a tile nipper or a hand saw to cut the desired shape in the tile.

7. Repeat this step on the next row of tiles until you've reached your desired height.

8. When the wall is completely tiled, let the mortar dry at least 12 hours up to a day.

Wrapping Up

9. Remove the tile spacers and mix the grout according to the manufacturer's instructions. With a rubber float apply the grout into the spaces between the tiles, wiping away excess grout with a damp cloth. Let the grout dry, usually about 12 to 36 hours.

10. Finally, seal the edges of the tile seam with caulk to prevent moisture from getting behind your freshly tiled wall.

Since the bathroom is one of the trickier areas to tile, once you get the handle on how to tile a shower you can apply your skill to any part of the house.
