In conclusion, the process of tile installation can be simplified with a few easy tips. A good adhesive bond is essential to a strong finished look. If the adhesive does not adhere well to the substrate, the tile can slip during installation and be damaged. Make sure to apply a thin bead of adhesive to the wall or substrate before laying tiles. The bead should cover the entire surface and extend about 1/2 inch beyond the edge of the tile.

Use your finger to spread the adhesive evenly. Allow the adhesive to dry for at least 24 hours. Next, cut tiles to fit the area. Don’t forget to leave the seams between tiles exposed. Finally, apply a bead of adhesive to the tile backs to keep it in place while you install it. It’s also a good idea to set tiles before installing them. It will give the tiles time to adjust to the new environment, and ensure they are stable.
