Bettye Calderon Floor, July 13th , 2017. Make sure that the home has the basics. For your ideal floor plan, know up front what your home is going to need, from number of bedrooms to a suitable number of bathrooms. Automatically eliminate any home that does not offer this basic floor plan and you will quickly begin to narrow down the selection to something much more manageable in your chosen area. Once you know that the home has the basics, you can begin to eliminate based on other criteria. Choosing the number of bedrooms is not simply a matter of counting the people in your family. For instance, if your family consists of you and your husband, you may not need two bedrooms in your starter home. On the other hand, if you have a son and daughter, they will each need a room, bringing the total to a minimum of three. Sometimes children of the same gender can share a bedroom, as can roommates or housemates on occasion.
Mindy Barnes Floor, July 12th , 2017. As mentioned earlier, grout is a very porous surface. As a result, it can quickly get damaged if one uses high volumes of water during the cleaning process. To ensure superior cleaning results without using too much water, it would be best to switch to hard tile floor cleaners that generate dry steam. The low moisture content, as low as 5 percent, ensures effective cleaning of grout without posing any threat of damage to the grout surfaces. Tiled floors in kitchens, restaurants and food processing facilities generally feature high concentrations of germ and bacteria buildup. Scrubbing or the use of sanitizers may not always help eliminate germs. Thankfully, the hot steam generated by tile cleaners helps eliminate germs, mold, mildew, and bacteria from floors. Powerful anti-bacterial technologies in high-grade hard surface cleaners ensure the elimination of up to 99.99 percent of the most dangerous pathogens from tiled floors.
berkah Floor, July 12th , 2017. 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.
Norma Oneil Floor, July 14th , 2017. Once the floor is prepared and dried, you can start laying your ceramic tile flooring. It is best to lay the tile in pre-separated sections. Divide the floor into four sections. You can use grout as a line separator. Then, for each section, use a notched trowel to spread the mortar. Hold the trowel at a 45 degree angle so that it creates notches in the spread. This enables better holding when you set in the tile. Do not spread too much mortar at once. If the mortar dries before you can set the tile, you’ll have the additional problem of removing it. When you set the tile, only a light pressure is required. Depending on the thickness of your tile, you’ll have to press it into the mortar a short distance. Make sure that each tile is even with the next. Mortar will come up over the sides of the tile, but this can easily be wiped away. Avoid resting hands or arms on the tile you’ve set. It’s going to take a couple of hours before the mortar is completely dry. Grout the ceramic tile flooring, and wipe off any grout that gets on the tile.
Norma Oneil Floor, July 11th , 2017. This is where the use of natural stones like marble comes into play. These stones, just like wood, have the tendency to bring about the natural ambience within the house. In their polished forms, these stones provide the perfect backdrop for all kinds of decor. The color may depend on the user’s choice, but the use of white in natural stones beats all the other colors in terms of compatibility. The white background on the floor allows the use of any decor in the room. Consider the use of Victorian furniture carved out of wood and polished to perfection. What better place to put it in than on a Carrara White Marble floor that has got the impeccable looks of luxury and suave? The looks might remind you of the white backdrops of an art gallery. You can have paintings in the room or have the log furniture installed. There is something about the use of white marble that brings about a sense of clinical cleanliness and broad spaces in the room.
Lizzie Ryan Floor, July 13th , 2017. Installing ceramic tile floors is not as hard as it looks. With a little knowledge and an easy step-by-step guide on how to do it, you can already be tiling your way to your dream floor. Here are some basic ceramic tiling tips you can chew on when you plan on installing ceramic tile floors at your home. Knowing the kind of subfloor you’ll be installing ceramic tile flooring over is important. There are three main types of subfloors you might encounter: Vinyl, plywood, and concrete floors. Installing ceramic tile flooring directly to your vinyl or linoleum subfloor surfaces is greatly discouraged. One, it may contain asbestos fibers; and two, vinyl flooring is not a solid as good ol’ concrete flooring. When installing ceramic tile on vinyl, experts would recommend rough-sanding, or scarifying, the vinyl floor surface first so your tiling mortar has good grip to set on.
Shelly Logan Floor, July 11th , 2017. Before you can begin your ceramic tile flooring installation, you must make sure that the tiles you have chosen are well-suited for the section of the house you are going to use them for. Ceramic tile flooring is resistant to moisture, water spillage and sudden extreme changes in temperature and are usually used in bathrooms or kitchens, and sometimes in other areas of the house as well. Once you have made sure of the section of flooring that you will use ceramic tiling for and also the tiles that you want to use - you are ready to begin.
Callie Trevino Floor, July 13th , 2017. You’ll need the tile, of course. Your choice of design is entirely your own, but consider how the design will fit in with the rest of the room. Consider, also, the room’s function. Kitchen floors are always exposed to food and water drips. Dark ceramic tile flooring would tend to make seeing these drips more difficult when you’re mopping the floors. Light, solid colors are most appropriate for kitchen floors, while darker tile with simple patterns go best in bathrooms. Shop around at local hardware and home improvement stores or on the net. If you don’t find what you want at your local stores, you’re sure to find it on the net. You can get ceramic tiles from any country on the net. You’re sure to find the design you have in mind there.

Shawna Pickett Floor, July 12th , 2017. Tile Flooring Comes in Many Varieties. Tile flooring has been used around the world for centuries. Evidence of this can be found in the remains of Ancient Greece and Rome, where mosaic tile flooring can be seen. To make these mosaic tiles, small pieces of clay, glass, shell, or other materials were placed into unique, colorful patterns. Throughout Europe, tile flooring has been used for years. Many styles of tile flooring have been used. One of the most notable types is the stone flooring used in castles and other buildings. To make stone flooring, stones of various types (such as slate, granite, and sandstone) and sizes are arranged and grouted together to make a floor. Careful planning must be used to ensure such floors are relatively flat and don’t have abrupt edges people can trip over. However, you can now purchase specially shaped and sanded stones to avoid such problems.
