And welcome back to my last post about how to put down tile. I feel like the blog series has almost been as long as the actual process, jk!! (Here are part I and part II in case you missed them) Tiling 1,500 SqFt took what felt like fo’ever. Which it obviously didn’t since we do have beautiful floors right now but man it felt like it would never end.
And welcome to part II of how to put down tile over sub flooring. So today I will talk about the tiling process. In my previous post I explained you how to put down HardieBacker. As mentioned in part I, hubby and I put down 1,500 SqFt of tile on our upper floor ourselves. Yes we were crazy enough to do it ourselves. It was one of the biggest projects we have tackled so far. And I am telling you guys it was insane. My knees are still not the same and I reached my limits more than once during the course of this project. But the outcome is just beautiful as you will see in the pictures below.
Let’s talk tile today, and in more detail, how to put down tile over sub floors. So, let me start by telling that this was the biggest project we did in our house so far. It was also the most challenging one in so many different ways. First, of all did we totally underestimate how long it would all take. And secondly, we did it during a really inconvenient time.
There are so many different types of floors like tile, hardwood floor, vinyl, carpet and so on. Picking the right floor can be such a headache considering the options. Each kind has his pluses and minuses. So you want to make sure that you find the right type for you. How do you decide what floor is right? Well that’s a good question, let me explain you how to pick the right floor.
