How To Install a Tile Floor

Tile floors are stylish, durable, and long-lasting. These factors make them perfect for entryways, kitchens, and bathrooms. If you’re planning to install a tile floor, make sure you have everything you need to get the job done right.

Start with a good substrate, like cement board, before installing the tile. Mix up a batch of mortar and then fasten the substrate to the mortared portion of the floor with screws. Let your substrate sit over night to dry. The next day, lay down some more mortar and place the tile on top. Use chalk lines and spacers to ensure your tiles and grout lines are straight. Place a liberal amount of grout between the tiles and rinse the tiles free of excess grout fairly often. Watch this video for a visual demonstration of the process.
