How to tile a bathroom accent wall?

To lay bathroom accent wall tiles, you first need a sander, sponge, paint tape, fine-tuning mortar, notched trowel, tape measure, wet saw, grout float, grout sealer, and caulk gun. Then you need to clean and sand the application area to create a smooth surface.

Before starting to build, if using patterned and especially sequential tiles, place them elsewhere and create the layout. In this way, you can easily find which parts need to be cut. When cutting tiles, if you are using ceramic or porcelain tiles, a simple tile cutter will do the job. On the other hand, for natural stone tiles such as marble, a wet saw with a diamond blade can be used to prevent cracking!

You can lay the tiles on the mortar by spreading the adhesive mortar in small sections with a notched trowel. To fix the tiles, place spacers between the tiles (this is not necessary if you are using tiles with a small tile mesh.) and follow these steps until you have covered all surfaces and wait until it dries and the tiles adhere. Next, remove the spacers, if you are using a sealant, you can do this after the tiles are completely dry. Apply the joint mortar you prepared with a trowel and wait for it to dry. After the mortar dries, you can clean the tile surfaces with a damp cloth!
