We are in the process of tiling our kitchen floor. We would like to do a pattern with two different tiles, some are large planks that are 1/2 thick while in the middle we will have some small tiles at 1/4 thick.

What's our best options to lay everything flat ? Using more Thinset under the 1/4 ones ? using a 5mm easymat ?

Thanks for your help.


5mm Easymat (or similar product) is the better solution. You don't want to build the thinset up too much.

  • Yes use a solid backing, thinset is not consistent enough. – treeNinja Nov 1 '16 at 14:19
