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.

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.

They require very little effort to clean - but a mop and warm water must be used on them regularly to keep them looking fresh and bright. Now and then, a mild detergent solution can be used on your tiled flooring - and a little bit of scrubbing will help remove the odd stain. Your furniture legs should have felt pads on them to avoid scratching the tiles. If tiles are damaged, replace the entire tile with a new one that looks identical to your old tile, using the same process you used to install the tile.

Moreover, the construction papers will come to hand in a matter of days rather than months.
