You’ll need: Flexible tile adhesive; notched adhesive trowel; reinforced fibre mesh; brush and waterproofing system; grout (coloured to match tiles); tiles; plumb line; sponge; plastic spacers; flat rubber stamp; fine-tooth scraper; rotary tile cutter and/or straight nipper or wet saw; silicone; corking gun.
Tip: When buying tiles, measure your surface and allow 5-10% extra for wastage. Don’t be tempted to seal the grout, as moss and mould can grow under the sealer.
To finish your bathroom, paint the ceiling and any untiled walls in Resene waterborne enamels – Resene Zylone SpaceCote (low sheen), Resene Lustacryl (semi-gloss) or Resene Enamacryl (gloss). Porcelain mosaic tiles in 50x50mm module – colour beige. Other colours and modules available from Artedomus (NZ) Ltd.
