This means you should do some measuring first. You can also cut the tile while you’re laying it, but then you have to be sure you haven’t laid down the mortar until you’ve made the necessary cuts. Mortar that is only partially dried might not bond with the tile when you set it. You can use a wet ceramic saw or a utility knife to do the cutting. Which you use depends on the thickness of your ceramic tile flooring.

Sometimes only small adjustments need to be made, a mere few feet, to move a desk from a negative zone to a positive zone, but we can’t know that without an accurate floor plan. Another piece of practical advice I routinely give clients are the yearly zones to be wary of in terms of remodeling or accidents. For example, in the year 2012, the direction of southeast will be very accident-prone. If I have a client who wants to remodel their kitchen in that location and that year, we might consider postponing it or doing some specific counter-measures to diffuse the volatility of that area. But if we aren’t working with an accurate floor plan, then we could misinterpret where a directional zone is within a house. All of these theories apply to commercial spaces as well.

Danger of moth breeding can be eliminated by regular vacuuming. Life to the carpets and rugs can be added by cleaning them professionally, every two years at least.

Firstly, there are glazed and unglazed tiles; the glazed tiles can be cleaned very easily and do not stain as often as unglazed tiles. All you need to do is run a mop soaked in warm water with a mild detergent solution across them from time to time. The problem with glazed tiles is that they are very smooth and therefore can be quite slippery. This is dangerous, especially if the kitchen area is prone to water spillage or if there are young children in your home. To avoid this, you could choose unglazed tiles over glazed ones. Unglazed tiles will prevent the floor from being slippery and have an aesthetically pleasing textured surface. Then again, unglazed tiles will not be as durable as glazed ones - they will be relatively more prone to damage because they are not protected by that extra layer of glazing.

If you choose to create your own flooring you might want to talk to your house builder about how much space can be allocated to a garden or backyard play area for children.
