You have the vision – and the supplies – to make that bathroom into something divine. But getting to that final stage involves confronting a few minor obstacles, such as doing all that hard work and heavy lifting to transform the bathroom.
For starters, removing the tile – and the grout – is bringing this project to a standstill.

Getting In On The Ground Floor
Now comes the construction part. Here are 15 steps to help guide you through the work of installing tile:
- Plan your wall. Avoid any small pieces and awkward tile slivers along the wall’s edge.
- Place tiles on the wall to determine your horizontal and vertical rows.
- Draw your layout on the wall. The wall’s edge or the floor can be crooked, so don’t use it as a guide. Use a level.
- Mix your thin-set.
- Use a trowel to apply about 1/8 inch of thin-set to the wall.
- Apply light pressure at 45 degrees to create long grooves with the notched end of the trowel.
- Install the first tile at slight angle, and twist with firm pressure into place. For the first row, use painter’s tape to ensure tiles remain in place
- Insert spacers on each corner of each tile to get even grout lines.
- Continue this process across the wall.
- Measure, mark and cut tiles to fit along edges, and around electrical outlets, corners and windows. Remember: measure twice, cut once.
- Once the tile is cut to size, apply thin-set directly to the tile for the corners and small spaces.
- Before the thin-set dries, clean the excess between the grout lines with a screwdriver or spacer.
- Use a damp sponge to wipe any thin-set off the face of tiles.
- To finish off the top row of tiles, use a bull-nose trim.
- Cut 45 degree corners to reach intricate nooks in the tile.
