They are durable and long lasting - and this is why ceramic tile flooring has been used in kitchens and bathrooms with great success. They are attractive - if you choose the right kind of tiles - and can be found in themes and colors to suit your home. However, ceramic tiles do not make a smooth one-piece flooring that your child's play scooter wheels can roll across safely - or a non-slippery surface that your toddler can learn to take his or her first steps on. Neither are they extremely cost-effective when it comes to flooring your entire house with them. However, if you live in areas where your house might be open to rain - or moisture - then ceramic tiles would be a good idea because they are far better at resisting moisture and temperature changes than any other kind of flooring.

There are step by step instructional guides available online if you want to take this task upon yourself instead of hiring a handyman. The basics of installing your flooring are quite simple: the first and foremost thing you must do is measure the tiles and your floor accurately using accurate measuring tools. Then you must calculate, using these measurements of widths and lengths, exactly how many tiles you will need. Then you should mark the center of your floor by drawing lines through the mid-points of the width and the length of your floor; the intersection of these lines, of course, is the center of your floor. You must begin tiling from the center and proceed outwards. Use a tile adhesive or a thin set mortar to bond your tile to the sub-floor; you will need to apply pressure to each tile to let the adhesive work. Grout of the same shade as the tiles needs to be put in after the tiles have set. Each of these processes needs twenty-four hours to dry.
