How To: Install kitchen tile and apply grout

Install kitchen tile and apply grout

In this Home & Garden video tutorial you will learn how to install kitchen tile and apply grout. Take measurement of the area that is to be tiled. If you want to make a mosaic with the tiles, cut the tiles as per the design and layout the mosaic on a flat surface. Apply setting compound on the surface and fix the tiles as per the design. If there are diagonal cut, use a speed square to establish 45 degree angle. To bridge the thickness difference between glass and ceramic tiles, use the laminated backer board. Now for grouting, select the matching color of grout. Use sanded grout for ceramic tile joints and non-sanded grout for glass tiles. Apply the grout and use a sponge to wipe off the extra grout from the tile surface.
