    • 1). Remove fixtures such as lamps and vent frames from the ceiling. Use a screwdriver to remove all the screws holding the fixtures in place.

    • 2). Using a tape measure, measure the length and width of the ceiling. Divide each measurement in half and mark that measurement for all sides using a pencil. Then use a chalk line to mark the halves on the ceiling. The result should be four rectangles.

    • 3). Apply small dabs of tile adhesive throughout the back of the tile, including the edges, using a small taping knife.

    • 4). Set the first four tiles into each corner where the lines meet in the middle of the ceiling. Press gently with hands.

    • 5). Measure the edge tiles by measuring the remaining length on both sides of the tiles. For example, align the measurement from the last tile before the edges of the ceiling; measure the length on either side, because the measurements may differ in quarter inches or less. Then measure and mark the two measurements on a new tile and cut with a utility knife. Make sure that the piece fits before applying adhesive.

    • 6). Put the tile in place with adhesive. Then cut out the hole for fixtures with a utility knife.
