How to place tiles in your kitchen by yourself

If you think that you kitchen is looking outdated and ugly, you can use tiles to give it a brand new look. And if you want to save yourself a few bucks then you can do the job yourself. However the most important work is to select the tiles.

Before you start tiling, you will need to do some primary work. You will have to clear off the surfaces that you want to tile, remove the sink and detach the plumbing. You may also need to turn off the power if you need to work around the electrical outlets. Next make the foundation for the tiles with cement backer board or plywood.

Before tiling you will have to do a dry run and mark the cuts that are needed. After cutting the tiles, wet the foundation with thinset using a trowel, apply thinset on the back of the tiles and lay them and place the grout makers. You can remove the grout makers after the thinset has cured.
