Making tiling joints: easy work and accessible to all

Tile grouting is an important step in finishing a tiling project. The joints are essential to prevent the tiles from cracking or peeling, and to prevent the infiltration of water and dirt. Making tile joints is not complicated and is not reserved for professionals. Anyone can learn how to do it and get satisfying results.

Step 1: Prepare the tiling

Before starting to make tiling joints, it is important to prepare the tiling and the support. Check that the tiles are clean and free from all traces of dirt and dust. The support must be perfectly flat and clean. Also check that the tiles are aligned and evenly spaced.

Step 2: Prepare the tile adhesive

Once the tile and substrate are ready, you can prepare the tile adhesive. Most tile adhesives are sold as a powder or ready-to-use mixture. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for preparing the mixture and apply it to the tile with a trowel.

Step 3: Apply the tile joints

Once the glue has dried, you can apply the tile joints. Tile grouts are strips of material, usually cement, that are applied between tiles to hold them in place and to keep water and dirt out. Use a trowel to apply the tile joints. Use a special tool to create grooves in the joints and fill them with cement. Once the cement is dry, you can clean it with a damp cloth.

Step 4: Finish the tile joints

To finish the tile joints, you can apply a sealant. Sealants are available as liquid products or powders. Apply the sealer to the tile joints and let it dry. Once the sealant is dry, you can clean the seams with a damp cloth to remove residue.


You now have all the information you need to make tile joints. With a little patience and preparation, you can achieve professional results at home. So don’t hesitate to get started and create perfect tile joints!
