There are step by step instructional guides available online if you want to take this task upon yourself instead of hiring a handyman. The basics of installing your flooring are quite simple: the first and foremost thing you must do is measure the tiles and your floor accurately using accurate measuring tools. Then you must calculate, using these measurements of widths and lengths, exactly how many tiles you will need. Then you should mark the center of your floor by drawing lines through the mid-points of the width and the length of your floor; the intersection of these lines, of course, is the center of your floor. You must begin tiling from the center and proceed outwards. Use a tile adhesive or a thin set mortar to bond your tile to the sub-floor; you will need to apply pressure to each tile to let the adhesive work. Grout of the same shade as the tiles needs to be put in after the tiles have set. Each of these processes needs twenty-four hours to dry.

When you lighten your wood floor you will obtain a classy pristine finish that will easily complement your modern day furnishings. However, when you bleach hardwood, the greater part of the color is removed. An alternative to bleaching would be the use of varnish that is water-based. This provides similar results; however, it is a little more costly than bleaching.

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.

These stones, just like wood, have the tendency to bring about the natural ambience within the house. In their polished forms, these stones provide the perfect backdrop for all kinds of decor. The color may depend on the user’s choice, but the use of white in natural stones beats all the other colors in terms of compatibility. The white background on the floor allows the use of any decor in the room. Consider the use of Victorian furniture carved out of wood and polished to perfection.

The price is significantly better than the cost of pre-finished planks. As you can see this is another perk you get for choosing this style of flooring. This cost saving can then be passed on to the customer or end consumer if you so choose or it can go toward increasing the bottom line. Another option is for the contractor to offer custom design services to the client based upon the reduced initial cost savings. Either way it is a win-win for both the contractor and the customer when the cost savings is passed along. By creating a unique custom floor, it acts as a life size advertisement for the contractor’s services, as well as, creating an amazing feature to any home.
