The key to DIY tiling

Published: 9 May 2022 - Neil Mead

Tiles are a great feature to add to any home or property. Whether it’s updating a bathroom, adding some colour to a kitchen, or tiling a hallway or utility room, tiling can easily transform any room.


Before you start any tiling work, it’s vital that you research the right tools and materials to help you lay that perfectly tiled floor or complete a flawlessly tiled backsplash.

U-PRO, a handy online retailer of trade tools and supplies, offers a wide range of tiling products you’ll need, such as tile adhesives, spirit levels, mixing buckets and trowels.

Although sometimes intimidating for novices, trowels should be in every DIY tiler’s toolkit.  Essential for applying tile adhesive to a floor or wall before adding tiles, Rubi offers a wide range of trowels that are affordable, lightweight and flexible. They come in a range of sizes for different purposes, with the Rubi 10mm Square Notch Tiling Trowel and Rubi 6mm Square Notch Closed Handle Tiling Trowel proving popular for tiling. Rubi also provides a durable aluminium spirit level with a machined base to ensure consistent accuracy and a mixing basket.
