Transform your home with confidence using our step-by-step methods for perfectly installed tile!
Installing tile is one of the most popular DIY projects out there. It is a fun skill to have, is relatively easy to learn, and can save you a bundle of cash if you do it on your own! You can work at just about any pace you find comfortable, and the results can utterly transform a room. Most commonly used on bathroom and entryway floors and walls, tile has many other useful applications, including kitchen countertops and backsplashes. Exterior tile for patios can be permanently bonded to a concrete base or loose-set over a stable subsurface. Ceramic tile is the most common choice, but porcelain, terra cotta, stone, glass, and even new products made from recycled materials are perfect for adding a new look to any space.
