Now the fun begins, and the first order of business is to choose the right floor plan that is consistent with the home you have pictured in your mind’s eye - and the property on which it will be built. Odds are you’ll probably not open a magazine by chance and stumble upon a floor plan that has occupied your dreams all these years. Choosing a plan and refining the design to meet your needs will require some research, self-introspection and creative inspiration.
You can go with one kind of tile when you want flooring that is durable and beautiful. You can also mix and match different materials too. Together with your imagination and creativity, you can create a flooring design that’s unique to your home and give the rooms of your house a great personality, your personality. To make sure you utilize the wide selection of tile flooring ideas, you have to know about the various kinds of tiles that you can work with to install on your floor. First, you have porcelain tiles. These tiles are made by firing at high temperatures. They are also very dense and moisture resistant. You can purchase porcelain in a variety of shades and colors. Porcelain tiles are the most expensive though but with them you have tile flooring ideas that can mimic stone and other materials.
You next need to consider how you will cut the tiles for corners, edges, or other special situations. Many hardware stores have tile cutters that you can use or rent for a day. Make sure you have proper training for safety purposes. Another consideration is the type of tiles you want to use. Read about the pluses and minuses of each type of material, and bring home samples to see if you like how they look and feel. Think about the size, pattern, and color of the tile(s) you will use. Make sure the tile is easy to maintain and clean and will fit well is the chosen space. With so many options, the hardest part may be narrowing your choices!
The ranch house floor plan is a shining example of the American Dream in its purest form. It was then, and remains today, the most widely built housing style ever seen in America. This house plan style had its heyday from 1949 to 1965 for several reasons. Prevailing loan programs of the day made getting a home loan with no money down easier than it ever had been in previous years. Soldiers returning from World War II wanted to settle down and begin raising families. With the demand for homes at an all time high, the simple form and lack of detail made the ranch house floor plan much faster to build than a stately Tudor style home. Formal foyers and spiral staircases were discarded and replaced by level entries and single story plans.
Many homeowners love having this type of flooring because they are so easy to maintain. These tiles do not require a lot of cleaning or even special cleaners and tools. And if a tile gets a crack or sustains some damage, you only need to take out that tile and put in a new one - problem solved! Your floor looks good once again. When you are sure this type of tiles are the right flooring material for your home, the next step is for you to find out how you can install the tiles. Vinyl tiles are easy to install but mistakes do happen. So make sure you buy extra tiles. To begin installation, prepare the base floor. Ensure the base floor is level. There should not be any holes, raised areas, or anything that will prevent the base floor from being completely flat. Remove any nails or tacks, fill up the holes, and sand down the bumps. When you’ve got the base floor smoothed and leveled, you are ready to install the vinyl tiles floor. Don’t stick the tiles down right away; try to lay out the tiles in the pattern you want. When you are satisfied with the general layout of the tiles, you can start sticking the tiles to the base floor. Once the last tile is installed, you have vinyl flooring you are going to be happy about for many years.
