The ’standard’ floor plans offered should be varied enough to appeal to a wide range of clients, from large families to retired couples and everyone in between. If, however, your needs are different to most, or there is a special feature you have always dreamed about including in your dream home, then a custom flooring is the right option for you. If you plan on creating original floor plans to submit to your house builder, you should always work with a professional architect to ensure that drawings you use are produced to an accurate scale and can be easily translated into a finished product.
You also have ceramic tiles. This kind of tile is the inexpensive way to achieve the look of granite or marble floors. They can give the effect of having water on your floors that’s oh so dramatic. Another kind of tile you can use as flooring is metal tile. These are either industrial gratings or stainless steel. If you want your floor to have the look of brass, bronze or steel, this is the one to go for. You can mix and match this tile with other kinds of tiles to accent the floor and create a point of interest in the room. One of the most traditional flooring ideas to go for is using terracotta tiles. You can get a handcrafted look for your floors with this kind of tile. You can use it in the regular square shape or get ones in octagon shapes, etc. Put a picture on your floors with mosaic tiles. You can make a pattern or lay them out randomly for a unique design. Lastly, you’ve got glass tiles. These can be used as tile flooring ideas to give a quality finished look to any room.
Install the Ceramic Tiles. Start with the center and move outwards with each ceramic tile. Use thin set mortar or tile adhesive to set the tiles, make sure that the bond between the tile and the sub-floor sets by applying pressure on each tile. After the tiles have set, complete the process by applying the grout. Remember that the grout must be of the same color as the tiles you have chosen. Remember that each step requires twenty-four hours to set and dry before allowing yourself to proceed to the next step of your ceramic tile flooring installation.
There are many ways to enhance the decor of the floor of the house. The simplest method is the use of carpet and rugs which not only covers the floor but also offers to enhance the beauty of the place. The second method is to use the vinyl flooring that has the capability of giving the looks of any other form but the feel is lacking. This is why the use of wood is considered to be luxurious and ambient where the floors are concerned. The use of wood however in the floors is an expensive proposition. This is one of the forms of flooring that has got a relatively high level of maintenance required. Though it is one of the most comfortable forms of flooring, yet because of the level of maintenance is not always preferred.
Once you have your tile, you can pre-cut tiles that will be placed at the edges of the floor if the tile is too large. 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.
