One of the key advantages of the silver pearl granite tiles is the strength and durability of granite itself. There is nothing that could last you as long as these tiles. This is coupled with the beauty and grace of the designs and balance of color effect. You may plan the decor of certain rooms in a way that makes the use of these colors useful. Then there are those areas of a house that are constantly exposed to atmospheric elements. For these areas a selection can be made from the collection of the butterfly granite shades. You will definitely create a unique design with a placement of this tile collection in parts of the overexposed walls on the exterior of the house.
Country style floor plans represent the quintessential farmhouses that we have so often seen in the movies. Country homes are planned in such a way as to feel comfortable. The floor plan of a country home delivers a rustic and relaxing atmosphere - it doesn’t matter where it is built. They are characterized by roomy porches and large kitchens which are situated right next to the family room. Some country houses have steep roofs and irregular layouts. Still others have a front face that is not symmetrical, a pitched roof and a spacious front porch. The ranch floor plan is conventional and matter-of-fact. The roofs are low pitched with a large garage attached to the house. Ranch homes are single-storied. Split-level floor plans are not unusual. The façade is brick or wooden, with large windows. Ranch homes typically have an L-shaped hall which combines the living room and dining room into one area, with a hallway leading to the family room and a group of bedrooms all on one side of the house. A patio at the back with a glass sliding door leading to it is not unusual for a ranch house.
Then again, you may look at various new home floor plans and be able to customize your own. It is your home and you’re going to spend a lot of money on it, so it is only right that you can customize it the way you want it. Why would you want it any other way? It isn’t like you are buying a home that is already built and has been established for years. You are being given the opportunity to build your home from scratch and make it everything that you need it to be. You shouldn’t expect anything less. You can contact a company that has new home floor plans already drawn up for you to purchase. Basically what you are doing is buying the rights to them since the floor plans are their ideas. It may be somewhat pricey, but can be more affordable than having customized plans drawn up.
To set your ceramic tile flooring, you’ll also need mortar and grout. These are easily purchased at any hardware or home improvement store. You’ll also need a wet tile saw to cut tile, when required, and a trowel to spread the mortar or adhesive in which you set the tile. You can also use spacers which separate the tiles from each other in an even manner. If the floor you’re covering with ceramic tile flooring is other than concrete, you’ll either have to lay concrete first or lay concrete backing boards. The floor in which you’ll install your ceramic tile flooring must be as even as possible. If it’s not, you’ll have to even it out first. Repair all holes and cracks in the floor and clean it thoroughly prior to beginning work.
It’s also important to get the right equipment and tools for the project. You can buy most of the tools and materials you’ll need at you neighborhood hardware store, or home center. For equipment that might over your budget like tile cutters, try asking your local home center or tool rental yard if they have the tools you need for rental. Basic ceramic tiling tools include A pair of safety glasses, heavy leather gloves, tile spacers, notched trowel, a handheld tile cutter, and a pair of tile nippers. Have some sandpaper handy for smoothing out cut edges. Sponges and clean dry rags will come in handy for cleaning and wiping off excess mortar material and grout lining from your newly-finished ceramic tiling floor. Of course, you can always consult a professional if you are hesitant over how to start installing ceramic tile on your floor. From choosing the right tiles and color, to tearing out existing ceramic tile floors without damaging the subfloor, to installing ceramic tile that will last you a lifetime, a home improvement professional will be able to help you with information, at the very least, or assist you when you start installing ceramic tile.
