Knowing the kind of subfloor youll be installing ceramic tile flooring over is important. There are three main types of subfloors you might encounter: Vinyl plywood and concrete floors. Installing ceramic tile flooring directly to your vinyl or linoleum subfloor surfaces is greatly discouraged. One it may contain asbestos fibers; and two vinyl flooring is not a solid as good ol concrete flooring. When installing ceramic tile on vinyl experts would recommend rough-sanding or scarifying the vinyl floor surface first so your tiling mortar has good grip to set on.

Be careful though with areas that will get much use such as around a fireplace where logs will be placed or fireplace tools will be used. Low fire tiles and glazes can crack or chip much more easily than stoneware and high fire glazes. Also if it is an area that will require frequent cleaning high relief may prove troublesome. For ceramic walls in dry areas not subject to much physical contact most any type of tile and glaze is adequate. For wet areas flat tiles low relief tiles or even high relief tiles can be used so long as they are not in a hazardous place that a body can inadvertently come into contact with them.

Cost-effectiveness durability and versatility are their other advantages. Usually ceramic tiles can be installed on all types of countertops like those made of plywood cement and lightweight aggregates. But the main thing is the application of the right backing under the tiles. The selection of sink type is also important. Usually sinks selected for ceramic tile countertops are tile in and self rimming types. The tile in type sink is generally set below the tile surface and the other type is set on the top of the tile. Typically the size of ceramic tile countertop ranges from one square inch to six square inches.
