Dark Grey Tile Kitchen Floor - Ceramic or porcelain tile flooring is very durable as well as an excellent investment in your home. Tiles will last forever if they have been taken good care of, and practically never wear out.
Remove any existing floor coverings, carpet, or wooden floors. Clean the subfloor making sure it's free of dust and debris. Make sure the floor is tough and stable. Install cement backer board onto the stabilized floor and at each floor joist screw, the backer board in with 2 inches galvanized screws. The old flooring should be disposed of, and most rubbish services do not pick up such things.
Make use of a chalk line to mark two lines that intersect in the centre of the place. Be sure that the lines are square to each other (90 degrees). Place spacers between the tiles, leaving enough room. Look at just how the tiles are arranged; you want as many whole tiles in the center as possible. Until you are content with the way they may be placed, fiddle with all the tile.
Use set to hold your tiles in place. Make use of a notched trowel. Distribute the thin-place simply to as far as you are able to reach and put a tile. Install your tiles into the inset with a firm downward pressure. Don't forget to place spacers between the tiles. You can harness the tile on the corners gradually to ensure that it is in place. Border tiles and the cut tiles are installed.
