how to lay down tile flooring?
Ceramic or vinyl floor? Both will make a huge difference on what needs to be done. But the first thing you can do for either one is to sweep the floor completely and wash it several times to get all the fine dust and dirt thats there. Either floor must be flat and smooth. When you let me know which flooring you are doing , I ll be glad to guide you along. Any questions you can e mail me through my avatar. GL
Go to the local home improvement store . They have classes and even have videos you can borrow. Decide if you are going to use peel&stick vinyl tiles, or the real ceramic tiles with putty and grout. P&S are definately easier, especially for the first time user. Measure, then measure again. Get all the tiles at the same time, from the same dye lot, so your floor is the same color all over. Dont rush, this takes time.
gbhofgh, I strongly recommend using basement tiles to do the job, they are a bit more water resistant and can absorb as they say a good shock. Heres what you do, visit the site Im giving you below and then post another question on the ionstallation methods, dont forget to ask your mum about it.
Floor tiles are a great investment in your home. They're attractive, virtually never wear out and they're easily cared for. As an extra bonus, you can install them yourself. Any special tools you might need can be rented. All you need to supply is labor and patience.
