Any kitchen that is more than a couple of years old could benefit from a lick of paint and some new tiles. If this is the case for your kitchen, re-tiling is easy as long as you know what you are doing. These are some of the most important things to consider before starting your tiling job:
• Tiling requires patience. Take your time and make sure all the tiles line up properly and are 100% straight.
• Choose appropriate tiles and tile trim. Select your colours carefully and buy them from a quality DIY store that will give you a guarantee. Choose a tile trim to go around the edges and make your tiling work look neat and tidy.
• Check you have all the right equipment. You will need to be able to cut tiles down to size and you will need plenty of adhesives to apply them and ensure they stay put.
