Determine a desired layout for the tiles. Mark the center line, measure the height of the tiles and snap a chalk line as a reference point. Remove any cover plates that will be in the way.
Backbutter the tiles with a V-notched trowel (Image 1). Give each tile a little twist as you set them in place, as this will help the tiles adhere better to the wall (Image 2). Use spacers to be sure the tiles sit straight.
Use a wet saw to cut the tiles for the end pieces and to go around the outlets. For notched cuts, make a series of cuts and snap off the pieces with pliers.
Set the vent in place and check for level (Image 1). Secure it to the wall with the provided screws. Attach the vent elbow to the exhaust pipe and secure it with aluminum tape (Image 2).
