1. Measure the area for tiling.
This is in order to establish the areas where tiles are to be installed. Use a level to check the area horizontally and calculate how many tiles will be used.
2. Screw the timber in place.
After checking with a level, screw the timber in place. This will be your mark on where to start. You might not need this if you start from the bottom, or at your floor level.
3. Prepare the tile adhesive.
In a bucket, mix the adhesive powder with water. Mix it using the mixing rotary bit. Make sure this adhesive is what you need and is for waterproofing.
4. Lay the first line of tiles.
Put tile adhesive onto the back of the tile and spread.
Place the first tile on the wall. Put wedges and spacers as you go.
Repeat the process.
Should there be any spacing or areas that are not level, adjust accordingly.
6. Lay the second set of tiles to the wall.
Apply adhesive to the wall and don't let it sit for too long. Place the tiles.
7. Cut tile to size.
If there is a space in your wall where a tile can't fit like in this project, get a tile and mark where it needs to be cut.
Cut the tile using a tile cutter.
8. Completely tile the wall.
Continue tiling until you have filled your wall. Remove the timber placed earlier to help maintain the horizontal mark and work your way down.
