Now the fun begins, and the first order of business is to choose the right floor plan that is consistent with the home you have pictured in your mind’s eye - and the property on which it will be built. Odds are you’ll probably not open a magazine by chance and stumble upon a floor plan that has occupied your dreams all these years. Choosing a plan and refining the design to meet your needs will require some research, self-introspection and creative inspiration.
To set your ceramic tile flooring, you’ll also need mortar and grout. These are easily purchased at any hardware or home improvement store. You’ll also need a wet tile saw to cut tile, when required, and a trowel to spread the mortar or adhesive in which you set the tile. You can also use spacers which separate the tiles from each other in an even manner. If the floor you’re covering with ceramic tile flooring is other than concrete, you’ll either have to lay concrete first or lay concrete backing boards. The floor in which you’ll install your ceramic tile flooring must be as even as possible. If it’s not, you’ll have to even it out first. Repair all holes and cracks in the floor and clean it thoroughly prior to beginning work.
Different Kinds of Tiling Material. Natural materials for kitchen tile flooring include porcelain, quarry, pebble and stone. These ties are textures, rough and durable - and also, relatively more expensive. They offer a great authentic look to your kitchen and give it that extra classiness that you might be looking for. Porcelain and ceramic is easily chipped and damaged - and one needs to replace the tiles often. A good idea would be to use glazed ceramic or porcelain tiles for your kitchen tile flooring - although you would have to be careful on the smooth surface.
Finally, find a suitable grout to glue your tiles to the floor and fill in the spaces between tiles. You want to find something that is sturdy and that won’t crumble or allow your tiles to slide or pop off the floor. Also consider the color of the grout, choosing something that will match the tiles and other items in your room, while looking good and not becoming too dirty or fading over the years. With a little planning and shopping around, you are likely to find the perfect tile floor. The fact that tile has been used for centuries is a testament to the durability, beauty, and versatility of tile flooring.
