A tidy house, a tidy mind. First of all I get my materials and tools together. Now I can make a start!
The most important part: cutting tiles to size. Mark used a jigsaw for this, but it’s also very easy with a cutter.
Now apply adhesive evenly with a brush to the back of the vinyl tile. The adhesive can be used on wallpapers, tiles or wood.
Press the tile firmly against the wall with your hands.
The joints are then sealed with a silicone suitable for PVC. No grout is required.
For a clean finish, the tiles are cut to size with a cutter. Alternatively, you can use commercially available end profiles.
In wet rooms and when used as a splashback, it is essential that the wall tiles are sealed with silicone suitable for PVC so that no moisture can penetrate!
