You'll have to be cautious to handle a wet tile saw or utility knife. And patient enough to smooth mortar evenly, yet with grooves. You'll need several hours, depending on how big the floor, as two or three hours are required to dry, and you've got children and if the floor is a toilet, a second toilet that they'll use might come in handy.
You'll need the title, of course. Your choice of layout is entirely your own, but consider the method by which the layout will fit in with the remaining area. Consider, also, the room's function.

Light, solid colours are most suitable for kitchen floors, while darker tile with patterns that are straightforward go best in toilets.
When you've got your tile, you can pre-cut tiles that will be put at the borders of the floor if the tile is too large. What this means is you should do some measuring first. You may also cut the tile while you're playing it, but then you've to make certain you haven't laid down the mortar until you've made the necessary cuts. The mortar that's only partially dried might not bond with the tile when it was set by you.
To set your ceramic tile flooring, you'll additionally need grout and mortar. All these are easily purchased at any given hardware or home improvement store. You may also use spacers which separate the tiles from each other equally.
