How to Tile a Bathroom Part 2/4
Cut a 45-degree angle in the tile trim. Position this in the window profile. Use a tile to give the correct trim position. Mark the vertical finish point and the horizontal point. Cut the trim to length.
On another piece of trim, cut another 45-degree angle. Place this against the window profile to determine the position and length. Mark the other 45 degrees and cut. Remember to allow for the tile thickness. Place the tile on the window seal and mark the position of the trim.
Repeat the same process with the third piece. Leave the lengths to one side as they will be required shortly. Now, you can tile down to the finish surface. The cut edge must be cut away from the full tile. Mark the height of the tile to the cut with a pencil. Now, cut.
Here, you can see how to cut a tile using a tile cutting machine. Again, remember to wear eye protection. It's worth mentioning that some tile distributors will hire the tile cutting machines on a daily basis. Check that the cut tile fits.
Mark further tiles. Cut and fit. Spread the adhesive on the back of the tile and fit the wall. Remember, the cut edge goes into the internal angle. Space with a cardboard or spacers to obtain the correct spacing with the tile above. Continue the same process around the bath. Now, we can concentrate on the window profile. Fit the trim across the bottom of the window seal.
Mark and cut sufficient tiles. Apply adhesive and fix. Space the tiles as necessary. Fix the trim to the vertical profile as before ensuring enough overlap to cover the tile at right angles behind.
Mark and cut the tiles and fix. Space and adjust tiles as necessary.
