Common problems with tiling projects
›› Not buying enough tiles: Generally you need 10 per cent on top of measurements, but sometimes cuts can be tricky and tilers will go through more tiles than expected. ›› Look at designs, sizes and different styles of tiles (for example, a bathroom tile is different from that used in living areas). ›› Grouting is important, as it is the finishing touch (in between the tiles). Choose the colour carefully. ›› Finishing will also include waterproofing and sealing.
