How to Install Pebble Flooring

Pebble tile flooring has been made much easier by the advent of mesh backed tile systems. Available in a natural range of colors and in shiny and natural matte finishes pebble flooring evokes both a naturalistic and very modern sensibility. Laying down the tile sheets and grouting is much the same as with flat tile but a little more adhesive and grout are used to anchor the pebbles. Individual river stones or pebbles can also be laid directly into a mortar bed, resulting in a more rustic look which may be ideal for the out of doors.

  • Step 1

    Determine the pebble layout pattern by dry fitting the stones or cutting the tiles to fit together like a puzzle, enmeshing the edges and ensuring even spacing between the stones and tiles.

  • Step 2

    Apply thinset or adhesive mortar to the floor with a notched trowel leaving a 1/8-inch to 1/4-inch depth.

  • Step 3

    Lay in tiles or pebbles and gently press into place to make good contact. Allow to dry and cure for at least 24 hours before proceeding with grouting

  • Step 4

    Mix sanded grout and water to a soft ice cream consistency and apply to the pebbles with a hand float pressing into the grout crevices. Sponge off excess grout with a freshly rinsed and well wrung sponge.

  • Step 5

    Leave undisturbed for at least 24 hours to allow the grout to set and cure. Use a scrub brush and wet sponge to buff off any grout haze from the pebbles.
