Variation of shades is an inherent characteristic of ceramic tile – mix tiles from several cartons as you set, for a blended effect.
Begin installing tiles in the center of the room, one grid at a time. Finish each grid before moving to the next.
Start with the first hexagon floor tile in the corner of the grid and work outward.
Set hexagonal tiles for floors one at a time using a slight twisting motion. Don’t slide tiles into place.
Insert tile spacers as each hexagon tile is set, or leave equal joints between tiles.
Fit perimeter hexagon floor tile in each grid last, leaving 1/4″ gap between tile and wall.
Any rectangle porcelain should never be set in a running bond pattern, rather no more than a 1/3 overlap; the joint should be widened to 3/16″ and use of a large unit porcelain mortar should be employed.
When grid is completely installed, tap in all hexagonal tiles for floors with a rubber mallet or hammer and wood block to ensure a good bond and level plane.
Remove excess adhesive from joints with a putty knife and from tile with a damp sponge.
Do not walk on hexagon tile until they are set (usually in 24 hours).
