Firstly, thorough preparation is key.
Ensure your surface is clean, level, and properly primed before starting.
Measure and plan your layout carefully to avoid awkward tile cuts and ensure symmetry in your design.
Invest in high-quality tools and materials.
Quality adhesive, grout, tiles will ensure a lasting finish and consider using spacers to maintain even spacing between tiles and achieve a polished look.
Practice proper technique.
Start tiling from the centre, work your way outwards, use a notched trowel to apply the adhesive evenly and gently press tiles into place.
Remove excess grout promptly with a damp sponge to avoid staining tiles.
