Installing Penny Round Tiles

traciemarieNovember 28, 2010

Hello,

Was wondering if anyone out there has installed penny round tiles on their floor. I love the look, but it seems like there aren't many resources out there for tips on how install on the floor.

How to you keep thinset from squishing through the mesh? Any tips for keeping the rows of tiles straight? I guess these tips would be true of any mesh-backed mosaic tiles.

Thanks!

I am not sure about keeping thinset from squishing through, but the sheets are "keyed" so they fit together as you lay them. The trick there is to keep the same space between the two sheets as is between the tiles within the sheet.

Good luck.
