Laying Vinyl Floor Tiles Kitchen - Ceramic or porcelain tile flooring is extremely durable and a great investment in your house. Tiles will continue forever when they have been cared for, and almost never wear out.
Remove any existing floor coverings, carpeting, or wooden floors. Clean the subfloor making sure it's free of debris and dust. Make sure that the floor is secure and tough. The old flooring will need to be disposed of, and most garbage services do not pick up things that are such.
Utilize a chalk line to mark two lines that intersect in the centre of the region. Make sure the lines are square to every other (90 degrees). Lay a row of tiles along both lines on the dry floor. Look at the way the tiles are arranged; you need as many whole tiles in the centre as you can. Fiddle with the tile before you're pleased with the way they're positioned.
Use set to hold your tiles in place. Use a notched trowel to spread the thin set. Spread the thin-set only to as far as you can comfortably reach and place a tile. Install your tiles to the inset with a strong downward pressure. Remember to put spacers involving the tiles. You're able to tap the tile on the corners gradually to make sure that it is in place. Border tiles and the cut tiles are installed last.
