How to Cut Tiles to Fit at Edges?

Updated:2013-01-10 15:19:27

It is well known that not all of the natural stone, no matter the slab, tiles, even the small mosaic could be fit well, especially at the edges. Thus, cutting step is always a necessary procedure. Here we would like to tell you about how to cut tiles well to fit at edges?

  •     Cut tile sheets to the nearest full row to fit around outlets, then fill the gaps with tiles cut on a wet saw.
  •     If you're lucky, you can fit the tile sheets under upper cabinets and around outlets by cutting the mesh backing with a utility knife. If not, you'll have to cut the tile with a wet saw. Nippers and grinders cause the slate tiles to shatter or crumble, although you can use these tools on ceramic tile.
  •     Slice the backing to the nearest full row of tile, install the sheet around the outlet or next to the cabinet, then cut tiles with a wet saw to fill the gaps. Cut the tiles while they're attached to the sheet. Individual tiles are too small to cut (the blade can send them flying!).
  •     Let the tile sit for at least 30 minutes, then apply a grout sealer if you're using natural stone (like slate) or unglazed quarry tile. The sealer keeps the grout from sticking to the tile (it's not needed for nonporous tiles such as ceramic). Pour the sealer on a sponge, then wipe on just enough to dampen the tiles.
