Large Cream Ceramic Floor Tiles - Ceramic or porcelain tile flooring is extremely durable and a great investment at home. Tiles never wear out, and practically will last forever when they're looked after.

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 should be disposed of, and items that are such are not picked up by most rubbish services.
Use a chalk line to indicate two lines that intersect in the middle of the place. Make sure the lines are square to every other (90 degrees). Place a row of tiles along both lines on the floor that was dry. Set spacers between the tiles, leaving enough room. Look at the way the tiles are arranged; you want as many whole tiles in the middle as you possibly can. Fiddle with all the tile before you're pleased with the way they can be positioned.

Install your tiles into the inset using a strong downward pressure. Don't forget to place spacers involving the tiles. It's possible for you to tap on the tile gradually to be certain that it is in place. The cut tiles and border tiles are installed last.
