So you have your eye on the Moroccan tile for some time, but does not know how to install it. Your problems are over. Moroccan mosaic at home is much easier than you think and can be done in a weekend.

The first thing to do is decide what design of Moroccan tiles you want. That will be the hardest part. Next, determine how much you need by measuring the length and width of the track to achieve its surface. I recommend getting extra tiles, because you never know what could go wrong.

For some areas, it is necessary to apply a surface. All local hardware store will help you decide. You want to be sure and to remove the molding or baseboards that stand in the way.

Make sure the rooms themselves, a similar appearance. You can add as many as possible complete profiles need to get moving.

Now is the time to put the tiles. For most ceramic tile, you need to purchase thin layer that looks like cement and is sold in bags. Most stores are the opener thin bags carry overbuy not afraid. Mix diluted with water in a five gallon bucket until you have a thick, paste-like consistency.

Once you have mixed the thin set, trowel over the area where the tile set. Only a flat area, you can reach your safe return. Use a notched trowel and perform for them the straight lines running.

Take a ceramic tile and place it in the thin set a slight downward pressure. Once in place take a rubber hammer and gently tap to ensure good coverage. When a thin range comes around the tile, remove it quickly before it dries. first complete your tile, then move to cut tiles. There sit overnight, and relax, because I have abandoned tomorrow.
