To make an exact layout, the tiling rule is an indispensable tool. It is quite possible to make one from a cleat.
- Use a 50 x 25 mm section cleat, 1.80 m long.
- Lay tiles on the ground aligning them against the cleat with the cross braces.
- Mark the position of each tile and the corresponding joints: thus it will be possible to visualize the number of tiles required and the cuts to be made at the end of the row.
