Covering Ceramic Tile Floors - Ceramic or porcelain tile flooring is very durable and a great investment in your home. Tiles will last forever if they have been taken care of, and virtually never wear out.
You'll need to remove all of the molding and baseboards. Eliminate wooden floorings, carpet, or any existing floor coverings. Clean the subfloor making sure it is free of debris and dust. Make sure that the flooring is stable and sturdy. The old flooring should be disposed of, and things that are such are not picked up by most rubbish services.
Make use of a chalk line to mark two lines that intersect at the center of the region. Make certain the lines are square to each other (90 degrees). Look at how the tiles are ordered; you want as many entire tiles in the centre as you can. Until you're satisfied with the way they've been placed fiddle with all the tile.
Use set to hold your tiles in position. Make use of a notched trowel to spread the thin set. Spread the thin-place merely to as far as you can reach and put a tile. Install your tiles to the inset with a firm downward pressure. Remember to put spacers between the tiles. You can harness the tile on the corners gently to be sure that it is in place. Border tiles and the cut tiles are installed.
