Floor Tile Installation Sequence


Basic Construction And Carpentry Techniques Home



Tile is placed on the floor in sequence, after a tile adhesive is put on one quarter of the room and allowed to dry until it becomes tacky. The adhesive does not cover the chalk lines. The first tile is laid on one inside centre corner for an even number of tiles per row, and over the centre lines' intersection point for an odd number of tiles per row. The second tile is laid adjacent to the first tile on one centre line, and the third tile is laid adjacent to the first tile on the other side on the second centre line, and so on. The border tiles are cut and a pattern is used to help cut and place the tile around pipes. When the first quarter of the room is finished, the remaining three quarters are tiled, one quarter at a time. When vinyl tile is used, each tiled quarter is rolled with a smooth or linoleum roller. A cove base is put along the walls after tile placement. If a vinyl cove base is used, the base is cut to lengths, an adhesive is applied to the back of the base, and the base is pressed against the wall.
