Newly Tiled Floor Takes Shape

In the previous article within our floor tiling home renovation project series, we discussed the issue, or non issue as it were, with the hairline cracks in the additional supporting base cement.

Today I thought I would pause in talking about any particular installation aspect and show you the progression made by Mike, one of the installation professionals installing our new front hall and adjoining laundry room tiled floor.

The above picture is pretty much where we left off last time, with Mike starting to lay more of the 2 foot by 2 foot porcelain floor tile in the front foyer. This picture was taken from within the adjoining living room. On the right you can see the base of the hand railing for the stairs leading to the basement.

When the first few floor tiles are laid, just as when the first few planks of hardwood are laid, it doesn’t look like much.  

Yet, as more and more of the floor tiles, especially these being 24 inch by 24 inch floor tiles, it doesn’t take too many to be laid before the visual aesthetics of the floor start to appear. In the above picture you see more tiles have been laid in the adjoining laundry room floor.

The above picture shows grout applied between many but not all of the laundry room floor tiles. Why? Well, below is the area for the clothes washer and dryer.

By this time the project, which was to last only a week, is now into its 9th elapsed day, which included a long holiday weekend. That is pretty much how long we have been unable to wash clothes in our house.

So, yes, we wanted the washer and dryer back inside and reinstalled as soon as practical. And, yes, we were able to use them even though the floor tiling renovation project was not completed.

Once this was done, a few more of the over-sized floor tiles were laid into place.
