Tips for large tile adhesive

I am going to have a go at tiling for the first time in the laundry. The tiles the Mrs has chosen are fairly large. What is the best adhesive to use for large tiles? Any other tips for a newbie? Marty

Re: Tips for large tile adhesive

I've always used tile adhesive - like this:

and a trowel like this:

When applying the glue, you definitely want to make sure enough glue.

 

Make sure to use tile spacers as that's the first thing you'll notice is off.

Finish off with some grout and you should be good to go. Anyone have other tips?
