Black And White Ceramic Floor Tile Patterns - Ceramic or porcelain tile flooring is very durable as well as a great investment in your home. Tiles will continue forever if they have been taken care of, and almost never wear out. When you're preparing to install 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.
Remove any existing floor coverings, carpet, or wooden floors. Clean the subfloor making sure it's free of debris and dust. Make sure that the flooring is stable and sturdy. Install cement backer board onto the flooring that was stabilized and at each floor joist screw, the backer board in with 2 inches galvanized screws. The old flooring will need to be disposed of, and most rubbish services don't pick up such things.
Use a chalk line to indicate two lines that intersect in the middle of the region. Ensure the lines are square to each other (90 degrees). Look at the way the tiles are ordered; you want as many whole tiles in the centre as you can. Before you're satisfied with the way they can be positioned, fiddle with all the tile.
Use set to hold your tiles set up. Utilize a notched trowel. Disperse the thin-set only to as far as you are able to reach and put a tile. Install your tiles to the inset using a firm downward pressure. Don't forget to put spacers between the tiles. It's possible for you to harness on the tile gradually to ensure that it's in place. The cut tiles and border tiles are installed.
