How To Install Oversized Floor Tiles

A few days ago we provided a summary of the many articles we wrote about preparing both a previously tiled floor as well as one covered with linoleum for new oversized floor tiles.

Today, we provide you with the listing of the articles, with many pictures, we wrote about the installation of oversized 24 inch by 24 inch floor tiles upon completing the many steps involved with first preparing both floors.

    Hi I love what you have done and would like to see this size and color tile, where would I find it?

      Yes those tile are beautiful ….. they are the color of slate but are ceramic.

      We got them from a small tile store in Oshawa, Ontario Canada.

      The store is located just down from the south west corner of Taughton Road and I think Simcoe Street.

      I hope that helps.
