Insert Spacers Between Tiles
Lay the Tiles
Beginning with the center tile, set the bathroom tiles one by one into the spread mortar or adhesive, giving a wiggle or twist to each tile to ensure a strong bond (Image 1). Insert spacers to keep the tiles separated and allow room for grout (Image 2).
Make any cuts you need to for the best tile fit with a wet-cut tile saw. Mark your cuts first with a wax pencil.
In our project, cuts included a circular cut around the toilet flange (Image 3).
To make a circular cut, make a series of notches into the tile, one right next to the other, allowing them to break out and form a half circle cut-out (Image 4).
Continue tiling to finish the floor, making the necessary tile cuts.
Use sandpaper or a tilestone to smooth out the edge of cut tiles as needed.
