What are the most common DIY tiling mistakes?

There are several tiling mistakes associated with DIY projects that yo will want to avoid. These include:

  • Not measuring up properly- not measuring up your walls or floors before you begin can be a big problem. What if you run out of tiles half way through, and they are no longer in stock? This will really set you back both in terms of time and money, and the hassle can be avoided by measuring before you buy.
  • Tiling without the right tools- If you are part way through tiling your floor or wall, and realise you are missing vital equipment, you could mess up your adhesive drying times, and ruin your whole project. This is especially the case when you have tiles that need to be cut to size. As a result, you should be sure to always have the right equipment ready and to hand before you begin.
  • Tiling without tile spacers- tile spacers are vital for perfect tiling. And if you want a professional result, you need to make sure your tiles are evenly and equally spaced. Otherwise the end result will look uneven and poor. As a result, one of the biggest DIY tiling mistakes you should avoid, is tiling without tile spacers.
