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.

These tools should include basic carpentry tools like an accurate measuring tape, a carpenter's square and a bubble level. You should also be prepared with the tiles and all you need to space them and put them together: tile spaces, a tile cutter, a trowel, and a putty knife. Then you must get your adhesives ready: tile bonding material, thin set mortar or tile adhesive, the sealant, the grout and a rubber grout float. Also you must make sure that you are wearing work clothes or overalls, glasses and heavy-duty gloves for safety.

You can buy glueless tiles which come with a rolled underlayment that in itself has an adhesive which can stick to the back layer of the tiles. Or you can go for the peel 'n stick version where there is a peel on the back layer which can peeled off, and the tile placed on the floor.

Their resistance to stain and moisture makes them a good candidate for installing in such areas as the basement, kitchen or the bathroom. The tiles are even neutral to common reagents such as alkalis, acids, aliphatic hydrocarbons and the like. However, certain aromatic hydrocarbons can soften the tiles to some extent. Depending on where and how exactly you plan to use them, you may go in for the appropriate tiles for your installation.
