Kitchen Project....

Before: Laminate (fake wood) flooring. Why any owner of a home would put this in an area like a laundry/kitchen that is bound to get wet is beyond comprehension.



And that is exactly what happened 1 week after we moved in. Washer hose popped out, flooded the kitchen, laminate ruined...

We thought about going real hardwood, but we both love tile. Project pics follow, laying the concrete board today.





Tomorrow he will lay out the pattern and lines for the tile, which will be put down on a diagonal pattern to look nicer. I told my wife I could do this myself, she said over her dead body. I'm sure it could be done, but these guys do this all the time, day in and day out, so they are much faster.

Of course, they are working under the table, (we know each other because we both have the same barber) so I'm getting a deal and he is getting tax free $$.

More pics later

three reasons not to have tile in a kitchen.
1. wet tile can be very slippery, and kitchens tend to have lots of liquids.

2. COLD! Tile at room temperature is like standing on a refrigerated floor. Even in stocking feet.

3. Grout lines get dirty really easily. Use dark colored grout to avoid this. Light colored grout will ALWAYS look dirty.

having said that, i do prefer the look of tile, and the durability is pretty good.

nothing beats vinyl in a kitchen though.

that is a good crew you have there. By putting thin-set under the hardi-backer and also nailing it down. I would rather opt for screwing the hardi backer down (squeak issue if the thin-set fails) But looks like a professional install....so far LOL.

And as for budha states..... Use a grout sealer 10 days after its all installed and seal the grout from "staining". Vinyl Blows and is for old people(they love it and hate change like tile).

Also true to have the tile run under the dish washer just in case of a mishap with the dishwasher.

BTW i do this for living

Are you saying Babba is old?


By the way, doesn't vinyl attract too much oil?

2. COLD! Tile at room temperature is like standing on a refrigerated floor. Even in stocking feet. This is why sandals were invented,

3. Grout lines get dirty really easily. Use dark colored grout to avoid this. Light colored grout will ALWAYS look dirty. Like R1Lover said, Sealer will go down to protect it, and my wife is a clean freak who mops like every day

having said that, i do prefer the look of tile, and the durability is pretty good. I agree

nothing beats vinyl in a kitchen though. If you have no money to spend (then again, I should have gotten marble...lol)

Thanks for the input. They nailed it and screwed the corners. I agree with the grout sealer, and the dishwasher will indeed come out for added "protection." They went with 1/2 inch concrete board for extra durability, the guy was like "dont call me if you want it taken up" lol

Progress today, this stuff is a lot more involved that I ever thought it was. Lots of measurements BEFORE the the first tile was ever laid down. Had to make sure it was all centered etc, and then he put down these support boards to ensure it wouldn't move while it set in. Then, he'll use those dried pieces tomorrow as new support for the other pieces...I might add we got the non-gloss finish, when I think of glossy tile I think of bathroom for some reason...

beavis I'm sure you could elaborate

looks great..... just wait for the grout process, that's the bitch part of it....

and the measurements are critical for not having a small piece of tile anywhere in the floor. I did my house from garage entry, down the hallway into the front room, then into the kitchen and dining area... from one end of the house to the other, it was a bitch to figure out all those different walls and rooms to make sure it would not have a sliver or a small piece if tile anywhere.

Good tile guys are hard to fine btw...... so it looks like you are lucky.

You can keep a straighter line by butting them up to a straightedge, in this case he is using a piece of baseboard as the straightedge.
