You will need
- - ceramic tiles;
- - plastic crosses for the separation of the tiles;
- - wooden slats;
- - putty;
- - painting the rail;
- - primer;
- - a wooden ruler;
- - pencil;
- - trowel;
- - grout for joints;
- dry cloth;
- - wet sponge.
First well prepare the wall you are going to lay the tile. Clean it from the old cover, and also from dust and dirt. Then, check whether the smooth wall. This vertically attach them to a special rail. If the surface deviates from it at least 5 mm, be sure to proceed to the alignment.
This can be done using putty. Using special paint rack, put it on the wall a two-centimeter layer and wait until it dries. If necessary, repeat the procedure. To grip the adhesive surface was better, it is recommended that primed the wall.
To simplify packing, mark the surface of the wall. Make a two-meter wooden slats line. To do this, lay the whole tiles in rows on the floor and insert them between the crosses. Place the ruler so that its edge coincides with the edge of the first tile. Note in pencil on the line of every tile. Measure the width of the wall , and locate its center point.
Horizontally attach a line to one of the markers coincides with this point. This will enable to determine how many whole tiles will fit on the wall. If you notice that the last tile of each row can fit only half or even less, slightly slide the center point. Move the line one space and then in the middle of the division set a new mark. Turn the ruler in a vertical position and draw a line.
Then mark horizontal lines. Nail to the wall the wooden slats that will play the role of guides. Attach a line to the vertical line so that it touches the floor, and make a mark on the top division. Then move it to the ceiling and you will see that the clicked point does not coincide with the division. Measure the distance between them and divide it by 2. This will cut the size of the tiles, ideally it needs to be not less than half tiles.
Hold the ruler parallel to the floor and move it until the division does not coincide with the point. Mark the edge of a ruler and draw through made mark a horizontal line. Nail her at the first wooden rail and the second parallel vertical lines. When the markup is done, proceed to laying the tiles.
Start with the bottom of the angle formed by the slats. With a trowel apply a small section a little glue. Flatten it, and then draw the notched side horizontal grooves. Take the first tile and attach it to the corner, carefully pressing it against the rails and the wall. Be careful when pressing the glue is not very strong off the end. Similarly, lay and the rest of the tile, splitting it between a plastic cross.
Wait until the glue thoroughly dries, remove the crosses, and start grouting. It is applied diagonally and as it is rubbed into the seams between the tiles. When the grout dries, use a dry cloth clean the tile. If in some places there are traces of the grout, use a damp sponge and then wipe the tiles dry.
