Tile Cutting

You can always rent a tile cutter instead of buying one. You will definitely need one. To make a straight cut, simply place the tile face up in the cutter, adjust the cutter to the proper width, score the tiles face. Snap the tile along the scored line. If you need to make a cutout to go around a corner, for example, mark the area you plan to cut out.  Secure the tile in a vise or clamps to protect the tile from scratches. Cut along the marks with a tile saw. A tile saw has a special blade designed to cut through tile and is generally made of carbide.

If you need to make a round or circular cut, mark the area and then use a tile nipper to nip out small pieces of tile until you reach the line. A tile nipper is similar to a pair of pliers but it has hardened cutting edges for cutting through ceramic tile.
