Tile Floors the Easy Way

Prepare the surface

Make sure the floor that you want to tile is free of debris. Also, ensure that the surface is even, with no bumps or large scratches.

Measure up

Measure the space you want to tile. Round up all measurements, as it is better to buy too many tiles than to not have enough.

Purchase tiles

Choose tiles with a neutral color scheme. They should also be as tough as possible, as floor tiles are known to crack.

Follow a guide

Use chalk to draw guidelines that you can follow when tiling. For straight lines, purchase a chalk line kit.

Cut to size

You can cut tiles to size, if needed, using an electric or hand-operated tile cutter, but be sure to wear safety goggles.
