Urban Tile Installation

  1. Unpack all the Urban Tiles & layout on the floor in a random combination so the colour tones & textures are mixed. Remember Urban Tile is hand crafted with all the tiles being cut by hand & painted by hand so there will be slight variation in size & a modulation of colour tone throughout the collection “this is the beauty of Urban Tile”. We suggest to create the scale of the installation on the floor first. Once you are happy with the tonal mix then the tiler can start to install the tile from the bottom row and work their way up the wall.
  2. Good subfloor or wall preparation is essential and should always be dry and even.
  3. Tiles can be applied directly to many wall finishes – paint, paper, plasterboard and brick. Handmade tiles are more difficult to fix than machine-made tiles. Floor tiles are thicker than wall tiles and less easy to cut.
  4. Use an appropriate adhesive – heatproof for behind cookers, waterproof for wet areas.
  5. Ceramic tiles, the edges can tend to look less crisp than porcelain, so color and quality of grouting makes huge difference to the success of the overall effect.
  6. Tile adhesive should be dry before grouting commences – we suggest the brand AM Grout.
