Measuring And Cutting Floor Border Tiles


Basic Construction And Carpentry Techniques Home



Border tiles are measured and cut by the following method. A potential border tile is put squarely on the last tile placed before the border. Another tile is placed over the potential border tile and butted against a spacer located between the tile and the wall. The spacer has the width of the clearance. If a spacer is not used, the tile is butted directly against the wall and is then moved away from the wall along the lower tile by the amount of clearance. The potential border tile in both cases is marked and cut, and the cut piece farthest from the wall is placed into the border space.
