First Time Tiler With Some Questions

Postby Imzi183 » Tue May 02, 2017 12:30 am

I am a beginner in DIY- absolutely have no experience in this area but we've got to start somewhere.

I have decided to start off with our toilet room. I want to use a tile border which will separate the two colours of paint I have chosen.

Here are the tiles I have decided to use. ... m/p/140254

We're going to cut them so we have two rows of the square tiles.

My questions are:

Do we use ready-made grout or the powdered version?

Do we use the 2-1 adhesive and grout or buy them separately?

What colour grout would look best?

Do we need a waterproof sealant? Or is there something else I should apply on the surface of the tiles?

Are manual cutters alright or should I go for something else?

Any advice or suggestions/opinions would be most appreciated.

Thank you in advance.
