Black And White Ceramic Tile Kitchen Floor - Ceramic or porcelain tile flooring is extremely durable as well as a great investment at home. Tiles will continue forever if they have been looked after, and virtually never wear out.
You'll need to remove all the molding and baseboards. Eliminate any existing floor coverings, carpet, or wooden floors. Clean the subfloor it is free of debris and dust. Make sure that the flooring is secure and tough. Install cement backer board onto the stabilized flooring 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 do not pick up such things.
Use a chalk line to indicate two lines that intersect at the center of the area. Make sure the lines are square to every other (90 degrees). Place spacers between the tiles, leaving enough room. Look at just how the tiles are arranged; you want as many entire tiles in the center as possible. Until you're content with the way they can be positioned, fiddle with all the tile.
Use thin set to hold your tiles set up. Use a notched trowel to spread the thin set. Distribute the thin-set merely to as far as it is possible to comfortably reach and place a tile. Install your tiles into the inset with a strong downward pressure. Don't forget to place spacers between the tiles. You're able to tap on the tile on the corners gradually to be sure that it is in place. Start in the center and work out to the walls. The cut tiles and border tiles are installed last.
