How to Lay Floor Tile, Part 1


  1. Oh man, I know about laying tile. I won’t ever do it again, or have my husband try, either. Ours came out pretty well, but the whole not-square room was a killer.

    Thanks for visiting my blog..if you want to comment you have to scroll to the absolute end of the post and click on “Comments.” I know, it’s hard to see, it is standard Blogger code and I am working on changing it. Thanks again for stopping by!

  2. Hi Alice,

    That sounds like a lot of hard work, good luck with that.

    In our bathroom we laid the easy tile that the back peels off, that kind that I think is made of some sort of plastic. It was easy just peel and stick, and I let my husband handle the edges, he’s fussier than I am anyway.

  4. Casadecruz, you didn’t leave your link. If you had any idea how much I rely on the links people leave with their names on wordpress’s forms… *shaking head at self*

    Janice, I have every intention of doing it again. My results were hardly professional, but I love the tile.

    Thanks Claudie. It isn’t really all that hard.

  5. You are my HERO for even attempting this. Can’t wait to see the finished floor!

  6. I really need to learn to do a few house improvement projects. We need new flooring thru out the lower level. I’ll be looking for part 2.

  7. omg…the end of your blog post is ominous. It’s probably the best cliff hanger ending I’ve read in years. So WHAT happens????

  9. I might have attempted something like this when I was younger and could still get up and down with ease, but now that I’m older, wiser, and have creakier joints…it ain’t gonna happen. I laughed when I read about the little blue thingies. With all the tiling they were doing at work this summer, we had little blue thingies everywhere!
