Subway tiles are rectangular.A shape tile usually laid with a continuous key or offset pattern.They are perfect for kitchen tailgates that already have a lot of patterns or designs.Because the height of the kitchen tailgate is usually 18 inch, and the height of the subway tiles is usually 3 inch, this pattern is easy to install between the cabinet and the counter, just cutting the edges to install.Measure every part of the kitchen tailgate.Get the height and length of each section and mark the area of the same size on the nearby floor.Lay subway tiles on the floor to help familiarize yourself with the pattern and determine the cutting position on the edge.Place the first tile of each part in the center of the bottom of the run.Lay the next tile evenly on the side.Start the next line-Tile from the first to the half of the creation offset or brick pattern.Continue laying the tiles before you fill each part.Cut the end tiles into edges suitable for mounting on the tile wet saw.For installation, you need to cut the least of the other tiles at the end of each line.Due to the offset mode, it is possible to end with a full tile every other line.After cutting the tiles, put them back into the floor layoutCheck if they fit before installation.Spread a thin layer-Install mortar on the tailgate wall.Start setting the tiles into the mortar in the same pattern you identified on the floor.Tilt each tile a little bit on the wall and twist it in place to help the tile bond better.Let the mortar dry for 24 hours.The grouting is installed by dispersing the grouting from different directions to the subway tile with the grouting float.Keep the float at 45-Make a certain angle with the Metro tile and drag the grout onto the surface to wrap it between the seams.Clean up the excess mud with a float kept close to 90degree angle.Wait 10 minutes and the mud starts to dry and then clean the subway tiles with a damp mud sponge.
