Marble Effect Floor Tiles - Ceramic or porcelain tile flooring is extremely durable as well as an excellent investment at home. Tiles never wear out, and practically will continue forever when they can be cared for. When you are getting ready to set up the tile flooring you'll need to get the ceramic or porcelain tiles, cement backer board, tile nippers, sponges, tape measure, knee pads, tile cutter or tile saw, grout, square, rubber float, chalk line, a lot of water, eye protection, thin set, buckets, hammer, notched trowel, and nails.
You will need to remove all of the molding and baseboards. Eliminate any existing floor coverings, carpet, or wooden floors. Clean the subfloor it is free of dust and debris. Make sure that the floor is sturdy and secure. The old flooring will need to be disposed of, and most garbage services don't pick up items that are such.
Use a chalk line to indicate two lines that intersect at the center of the region. Make sure the lines are square to each other (90 degrees). Look at the way the tiles are ordered; you need as many entire tiles in the center as possible. Before you are happy with the way they can be positioned, fiddle with the tile.
Use thin set to hold your tiles in position. Use a notched trowel. Disperse the thin-place just to as far as you are able to comfortably reach and place a tile. Install your tiles into the inset having a strong downward pressure. Don't forget to place spacers involving the tiles. It's possible for you to tap on the tile on the corners gently to make certain that it's in place. The cut tiles and border tiles are installed last.
