Traditional crosses, without which it is impossiblesustain a single size of horizontal, vertical seam, evolved into SAP systems consisting of multiple wedges used, disposable clamps. Now medium, large format tiles on the walls, granite tiles on the floor can put handyman, far from finishing, construction works in the presence of a level string, trowel / trowel, notched trowel, free time.
The advantage of the specialists of companies providingServices of decorating tiles premises traditionally remains solid experience, practice and knowledge of modern materials of the construction market, high speed, the quality of work.

Decorating the bathroom tile in the photo is the existing options of decor elements positioned relative to the horizontal, vertical, each other.
laying schemes have advantages and disadvantages:
- diagonal - material overruns due to numerous cutting waste, however, the technology allows you to hide defects in construction (littered with angles of divergence of the walls at the floor wall)
- ligation - similar masonry with horizontal displacement of the elements in adjacent rows, the technology is more commonly used for medium-format tiles
- without bias - horizontal, vertical joints are the same in all the rows, the method is excellent when inserting decorative elements of several tiles with the general pattern

To work required:
- Tile - for straight cuts, holes for pipes manufacture, the socket used hand tools, shaped cut produce electrical modifications
- trowel or trowel - for mixing solution
- electric, mixer - kneading solution
- spatula - more commonly used "comb" with different size teeth
- level - the professionals use laser models, handyman work with bubble, hydraulic counterparts
- cable - extends beacons, providing control over the length of seams lined surface
- SVP system - modified analogue crosses for the high quality of work
- rubber spatula - used for grouting
Samples of finishing bathroom tileare present in the portfolio of professional designers, on the Internet. Most tile manufacturers, porcelain inserted into their resources page calculators to calculate the amount of material that facilitates the planning of repair budget.
Before we know how much is the bathroom decorationtiles, you must either call gager, or make a sketch of the room on their own. The most expensive is a mosaic, granite cladding, decorating the surfaces of complex configuration, places the passage of systems engineering.
Decorating the bathroom tile in the video is a sequence of works, layout secrets choice.
And, in that order. facing technology consists of the following steps:
- layout without mortar tiles to determine the number of entire series
- incomplete removal of a number, the displacement of the central tile in the center
- mounting it on the solution, setting arbitrary lighthouses in the corners
- stretch cord or the installation of laser levels for horizontal spacing
- applying a "comb" of the solution on the basis of sex in the area of reach of the master
- laying granite ledge or poryadno
- dismantling lighthouses, laying all integral elements
- Partial cut elements after the final solidification of the solution (a day or a few hours)
- install them on the perimeter of the solution

Decorating the walls in the bathroom tiles can be madeAfter curing of the adhesive composition. Decorating a small bathroom tile in the image allows us to estimate the increase in visual space, a real improvement in the functionality of the room.

- in the manufacture of partitions, boxes necessary to consider the layout of granite floor, slightly increasing their necessary dimensions
Instead of leveling plaster littered the corners often used bonding plasterboard layer. Large format tiles on the walls can be overwritten dark grout to separate each item.
The design of the bathroom tile trim enhances the artistic value in choosing melkoformatnoy mosaic. Self lining to this element of decor is extremely difficult:
- wall defects can not be corrected with a thick layer of solution
- Mosaic uses special adhesives
- There are glass, ceramic modification work that requires professional skills

After fixing the mosaic quality of the seams is monitored for a solution, the material is left to dry glutinous mixture. The mesh or other substrate material is removed after final curing.
Finishing the toilet and bathroom tiles providescolorful design, high hygienic surface areas, high-quality power protection for the building frame. Subject to the recommendations of experts work readily available to fans.
