How to Install a Mosaic Tile Floor
Installing mosaic tiles is a classic and elegant way to finish a bathroom floor. With moderate skills and these instructions any DIYer can complete this project.
Break tiles into manageable pieces with a hammer. Be sure to smash the underside of the tile so you do not scratch the surface.
Sort and arrange preferred tiles before spreading mastic on the table.
Using a 3/16” trowel, spread mastic on the table, working in small sections to prevent drying, and begin arranging tiles (Image 1). Be sure to apply a little pressure to set the tiles. Use tile nippers to trim tiles to fit as needed (Image 2).
After allowing the tiles to set and dry, spread grout between the tiles, and wipe of excess grout with a sponge. Allow the tiles to dry for 24 hours and then mix and pour epoxy over the entire tabletop. Allow to set for another 24 hours.
