Tiling Project Checklist

In addtion to finding the right tiles for your space, you will also need to carefully plan for the installation of the tile. There are quite a few tools and materials you will need to have into order to do a quality tile installation.

Many will argue that in order to get the best results the most important aspect in the project is the knowledge and experience of the tile installer. For some, this may be the first tiling project and that is ok as well.

If it is your first project then you will just need to take some additional time to go over your plan and make sure that you have everything that you will need to get the job done.
