Remove, carpet, or wooden floorings. Clean the subfloor making sure it's free of debris and dust. Make sure that the floor is tough and secure. The old flooring will need to be disposed of, and items that are such are not picked up by most trash services.
Use a chalk line to mark two lines that intersect at the center of the region. Ensure the lines are square to every other (90 degrees). Put a row of tiles along both lines on the dry floor. Set spacers between the tiles, leaving enough room for the grout. Look at the way the tiles are arranged; you need as many whole tiles in the center as you can. Fiddle with all the tile before you're happy with the way they're positioned.
