RONA — How to Install Mosaic Tiles

Mosaic tiles can be used on a wall to create a colourful background to a décor or simply to add small bursts of colour. These tiles are easy to install and harmonize well with other types of tiles. Here, mosaic tiles are used to create a backsplash in a kitchen.

Before the installation, make sure that the surface of the walls is smooth and flat.
If you’re tiling over a painted wall, lightly sand the surface first.

Tools and materials you’ll need:

• Bucket
• Caulking gun
• Flat head nails
• Gloves
• Grinder or wet-cutting tile saw
• Grout
• Grout float
• Grout sealer
• Hammer
• Level
• Masking tape
• Measuring tape
• Notched trowel — 3/16»
• Pencil
• Plastic tile spacers — 1/8» or 1/16»
• Protective sheet
• Pull bar
• Rubber mallet
• Safety glasses
• Sanding paper
• Screwdriver
• Sheets of mosaic tile
• Silicone sealer
• Sponge
• Tile adhesive
• Tile edge
• Tiling tools
• Tile nipping tool
• Utility knife

  1. Thankyou for his video it's very well done and had my full attention right the way through.
    I have just renovated our laundry and I am gong to tile from the new bench top to the bottom of the overhead cupboards. We haven't chosen the tiles yet but I would like to use mosaic tiles but with the clear glass type mixed in.

  2. I'm going to put these mosaic tiles on top of already existing tiled vertical walls as well on horizontal ledges (around the bath) in my bathroom. I'm not planning on removing the old tiles by the way, to much of a hassle and I'm not sure what I'll find underneath these tiles. The former owner of our house messed those tiles up by not using spacing, so I'm now wondering what "glue" he might have used to attach them. For all I know I could be ruining everything if I remove them, if you get my grip.

    Are there things that I need to take into consideration, except for the wall being flat (which it is, thank goodness).

    Thanks in advance!
