    How to Install Mosaic Tiles

    Accessories and Tools required:


    Flexible tile adhesive 

    Tile Grout 

    V-notched trowel

    Rubber grout float


    Dry cloth



    Step 1

    Ensure that your surface is clean, dry and free from debris.

    Step 2

    Mix your adhesive in accordance with manufacturer’s instructions.

    Step 3

    Apply the adhesive to your surface using a V-notched trowel. Use the flat side to smooth out the adhesive so that you have an even coverage. 

    Step 4

    Apply your mosaics mesh side down into the adhesive. Press the tile carefully into the adhesive and flatten sheets to each other to ensure contact using a rubber grout float. Be careful! You do not want the adhesive to ooze out between the tiles!

    Step 5

    Allow the adhesive to set (follow manufacturer instructions). Sponge away any excess using a damp sponge.

    Step 6

    Leave for 24 hours. Now it’s time to grout. Mix grout in accordance with manufacturer’s instructions.

    Step 7

    Carefully apply the grout to the spaces between the tiles, working in sections and removing excess as you go. Polish off any haze using a dry cloth.
