The Importance of Tile Spacers

If you’re getting ready to tile a wall or a floor, you might be a little bit nervous about getting it wrong. Thanks to easy equipment access, many of us choose to do our own building and decorating work nowadays. Whether you’re a first timer or an experienced DIY lover, there are a range of different tools and tricks to help you get the most out of a new room. Tiling is one area that many people still get wrong, as it often looks and sounds easier than it is. To get a professional finish, it’s not a simple as just buying the tiles, mortar and cutting equipment. You need to think about the overall look and sizing of your tiles too.

The Importance of Tile SpacersTile spacers are one of the handy little extras that are available to those DIY lovers who understand the need to have patience and take care in their work. Tile spacers do pretty much what they say in the box – they help to correctly space your tiles! However, they also carry a whole range of other benefits to make your life just that little bit easier and your project just that little bit nicer.

  1. They give your tiles uniformity. A good looking tile project has a lot to do with accurate tile placing and if just one tile is slightly askew, it can have a devastating knock on effect for the rest of your project. You could end up with entirely wonky walls or even worse, run out of space for the final layer of tiles once you reach the end of your floor or wall.
  2. Cleaner grout lines. Using a tile spacer ensures that your grout lines look good too, which is especially important if you’re using a grout colour that stands out against your tiles. If there’s too much or too little space between different tiles, then the whole finish will look messy and you’ll be left with the difficult and costly job of starting again.
  3. Finish faster. A tile spacer will give you the right results fast. Tiling without an aid is not only difficult but incredibly time consuming too - even if you’re the most experienced DIY fanatic. Use a tile spacer and you’ll spend less time agonising over the straightness of your lines and more time getting the job done!

Whatever kind of project you’re taking on it makes sense to make a tile spacer part of your DIY kit.
