Postby Reeny » Sat May 31, 2008 11:48 am


Can anyone please give me advice on tiling my bathroom wall with 610 x 406 traverine tiles in a brick effect. I have installed the bath and shower basin and am ready to tile. The floor is tile effect laminate. I have rapid set flexible adhesive. I would like advice on the following please:

1. I am not using skirting so how much gap should i leave between the floor and tile? whats best way to achieve?

2. What size gaps should I leave between the tile joints and best way?

3. Should I lay only one level round the room at a time because of the weight?

Any other advice on laying these in brick effect would be very much appreciated.

Thanks all.
