Installation Tips

Now that your materials have arrived, you’ll have everything you need to get started. Yet details make all the difference when it comes to design. To help you get the best results, we’ve put together our top installation tips to make the renovation process as smooth as possible for you.


You’ll most likely have to cut some of your tiles to accommodate your space, so start installing your tile in a location where you want to see full tile pieces. 

Unless the design intends otherwise, measure your tile grout lines to be 1/16" for best results. 

As best as you can, try to keep your grout lines matching with the natural lines in the room. For example, try to match the horizontal grout line of your wall tile with the countertop height if the tile runs behind the vanity.


While taping off the corners and boundaries for your space can be a difficult, tedious task, make sure to not rush the process. Precision makes a big impact so you’ll be glad you took your time.


Generally speaking, typical countertops will be 1-1/4” thick. Yet ultimately this choice is up to you. If you decide to have a thicker countertop, make sure to have the edges ‘mitred’ for a seamless look. 

For more modern rooms, the edge profiles for countertops will often be squared off.  As far as other styles go, your local countertop fabricator can answer any questions you may have to help you achieve that perfect look.
