How do I use tile spacers?
Once youâ€™ve applied yourÂ adhesiveÂ and placed the tiles on top of it, simply place spacers at each corner of your tiles and then push the tiles together until the spacer is fully butted up against each corner of each tile. This will ensure an equal gap wherever the tiles meet.Â
How long should I leave spacers in?
20-30 minutes.Â TheÂ spacersÂ need to be in place until theÂ tileÂ adhesive sets, which usually takes from 20 to 30 minutes. Don'tÂ leaveÂ themÂ much longerÂ than that, or they may get bonded to the adhesive.
How many tile spacers do I need?
Â Estimating the quantity of tile spacers for you project is easy â€“ just take the number of tiles youâ€™re using and multiply it by four! Itâ€™s always worth getting a little bit extra though to account for breakages and losing them amongst yourÂ tiling tools and materials.
What size should I choose?
Taking British Standards into consideration (as well as common practice) it is recommended that wallÂ spacersÂ are 2-3mm (with 2mm covering the majority of requirements) and floorÂ spacersÂ 3-5mm.
