Mirror tiles can make a small bathroom appear larger by reflecting light around the room.
They’re also a decorative alternative to a single mirror above the vanity.
Square tiles can be arranged in square, rectangular or diamond shapes, and are easier to position on the wall above an existing splashback than other-shaped tiles.
1. Start with the walls
Pencil a line down the side edge of one tile when positioned against a base corner.
Use a spirit level to ensure that the line is plumb, then extend the line to the top of the area to be tiled.
Check that the first column of tiles fits neatly in the corner and, if not, move the tile in from the corner rather than cutting it to show where the first column of tiles goes, based on how square the walls are.
2. Tape it up first
Stick heavy-duty double-sided tape to the backs of the tiles to glue them firmly against the plumb line.
Butt the base of the next tile against the top of the first, working vertically then horizontally.
Tip: Cut tiles with a glass cutter
Cut tiles with a glass cutter, protecting your hands with heavy-duty gloves and your eyes with safety goggles.
Score through the tile with the glass cutter, then turn it over and snap backwards to break it along the line.
