Items to re-install toilet
To figure out the correct tile amount, you will take the square footage of your room (length times width) and add 10%. Then round up to the next full box size and order that many boxes.
You need to account for a bit of breakage as well as cuts, and mistakes and this formula does just that.
- The tiles should be centered left to right
- Where do you want your cut lines to be? Do you want a full row of tile right by your door, or against another wall? Or would you prefer to split it in the middle?
- Take into consideration the size of your tile and any pattern you may have.
- Lay it out first to be sure you like it prior to final installation
Be sure to follow all manufacture instructions and let your sealer dry completely prior to use.

I am SO glad I read this post. We removed a built-in desk from our kitchen and I tiled the spot it was pulled from but I have a total haze from the grout ... I just assumed I did a terrible job wiping it up and had no idea I could do anything with it. So glad to read about the poultice stain remover!!<br /><br />I'm planning on tiling my kids' bathroom and your tutorial is fantastic!
Oh no! I am so sorry you still had a haze left! That is the worst :/ So sorry!! <br /><br />And thank you so much 🙂 I am so glad it helped! I can't wait to see you kid's bathroom!!
Just an fyi...never caulk around the toilet. If there's a leak, you wont know until there is a lot of damage to the subfloor.
