How To Tile Your Floor Using Wood Ceramics Tiles
If you are tired of your floor or want a new look floor, you can retile your floor using wood ceramics tile. It is easy and you can do it by yourself. You can buy the wood ceramic tiles from www.blezztile.com which has a wide variety of wooden ceramic tiles that you can choose from and they come in different colors and styles.
The first thing to do is find out where you will start laying the tiles from. Measure the middle of each wall then use chalk to draw lines, the midpoint of the chalk lines is where you will begin laying your tiles. Arrange your tiles on a straight wall side by side until you are more than halfway along that wall. In the middle of the room place a tile with its edges along the chalk lines you had previously drawn. From the line of tiles you had laid to the nearest edge of the center tile, take that measurement. That measurement will tell you how wide to cut your tiles.
Take another measurement from the opposite wall, wall 2, to the center tile. If the two walls have different measurements keep adjusting the center tile until the measurement is equal. Mark where the center tile meets the previously drawn chalk lines from the other two walls, walls 3 and 4, that you haven't measured. Lay a line of tiles parallel to the chalk line drawn for walls 3 and 4. Mark the point where the straight edge touches the edge of the center tile. This is where you will begin to lay your tiles.
Mix your thinset with a latex additive to the right consistency then leave it for 10 minutes. Don't mix too much as it may end up drying and you will have to throw it out. Use a trowel to spread the thinset thinly and start from the straightedge.
Lay the wooden ceramic tile on the thinset with the edges flush against the straightedge and press it gently. Lay the other wooden ceramic tiles in the same way along the straightedge. Use tile spacers to make sure that your joints are even. Remove the straightedge out of the way and continue applying the thinset then laying the wooden ceramic tiles from www.blezztile.com.
Work from the center of the room to the walls. Make sure that the tiles are evenly laid so that you don't have tiles that have higher edges than others. For corners and edges of the room that you need smaller sized tiles, draw on a tile the size of the corner so you know how much to cut off.Use a wet saw to cut off the unnecessary part of the tile.
Leave the tiles to set for a night. The next day, scrape off any excess thinset on the wooden ceramic tiles or joints. You can use a margin trowel. Mix some grout to an almost runny consistency and spread on the tiles and joints using a rubber float. Let it set for 30 minutes then wipe using a sponge.
