How To Cut Tiles Like A Pro

Cutting squares or circles in tiles can be a bit fiddly, but well worth the effort.

How To Cut Tiles Like A Pro

No matter what size area you work on, you will generally need to cut at least one tile.

Most tiled areas require at least one hole to be cut. The key to cutting rectangles and squares in tiles is to avoid cutting beyond the corners.

For successful circles, position the circle at the intersection of two or four tiles rather than cutting into a single tile.
 
TIP: We recommend choosing a small angle grinder and 105mm diamond blade with a smooth, continuous edge.

Firstly, Score the circle outline.

Mark the circle on the tiles then score the profile with an angle grinder.

Before removing the excess tile, make short cuts on both sides of the semicircle (A and B).

Connect the cuts (C) by making a series of progressively deeper shallow cuts.
