The tiles can be placed onto nearly any floor type, except, of course, not carpet. They are easy to install and can be utilized in a variety of rooms for varying purposes, such as gym flooring, garage flooring, basement flooring, children’s rooms, commercial kitchens etc. The tiles are placed on top of a thick, padded layer.
They are designed to look like material, such as wood flooring, stone or ceramic tiles, yet they aren’t. They provide a beautiful design factor, at a less expensive price tag, but with great durability and easy maintenance and installation. Distributors also offer a wide variety of interlocking carpet floor tiles. These tiles come in different colors and textures and once again are easy to install and uninstall.

Tiles Are Easy to Mix in a Mosaico Terrace Flooring

This is a real story. My little and cozy roof apartment, the highest apartment of the building, was keeping water on the floor when it rained.

This terrace is like a pocket open-space on which our apartment runs towards the sides of the condo. It looks south and the sun is present since 12 am until dusk. I had never thought of making another floor pavement until one night the rain began to fall and to cover it all.

The people living under our apartment claimed about all the rain that had gone through their ceiling and definitely falling from our floor oust standing over their living room.

So I had this great idea! I went tiles shopping and found some 2ND choice beauty earth colors tiles.

They were so rare and smooth! And, I could break them with a hard tool. Easy as breaking an egg!

So, something came to my mind, the beautiful Mexican floors I had seen so many times and that I loved so much. It was so simple. I will give you some hints that you may develop according to your floor size. First of all, look for tiles in colors you like and a good 2ND choice that fits your budget. Three colors could be OK.

Then:

buy enough cement glue, asked the guy at the shop for quantities per square feet

measure well the extreme sides of your terrace and divide it by the length of the tiles you bought

arrange a pathway of tiles (mixing colors if you wish) along the extremes of your floor (it will look like a frame border)

once you have all the floor extreme sides covered with the tiles, then begin to measure the distance between each extreme border to see how much space you have in the center

Until know, you are making just an “essay” of the floor pavement without sticking the new tiles t the old ones.A�

inside the space left between the borders, begin to put the tiles in a circle separating them like 20 centimeters one from the other

mix their colors and just rotate them a little so they follow the circle ring

now you have the size of the Mexican ring done with tiles, swinging on the circle

put some tiles, of all colors,inside thick towel. Take a hammer and give a hard stroke on the towel

open the towel and take the pieces out, dividing them by size and throwing out those that lost some pieces in their borders due to the stroke. Set them aside

Now, you will be able to enjoy doing the Mexican floor.A�

First begin from the circle.

Be sure that the circle is in the right middle of all the space left between the borders of tiles on the extreme of your floor space

Put some glue under the tile and apply it well to the pavement.

Do this with each single tile of the circle until you get a round form.

Calculate well space left between the circle and the extreme tiles to see whether it might be possible to do another “frame” (square) around the circle. It would be a tiles square between the circle and the borders.

Do the square, alternating colors and applying glue under the new tiles. Remember it will take some time for it to dry.

It is time now to make the borders, except the bottom side of the floor, that extreme on which you will be walking back and forth. Make as above along the sides of the pavement. It will be a square or rectangle as for your pavement’s size. Remember the tiles we had broken?A�

Now it gets fun!

You will be filling all spaces left with those little pieces of the same colors of the tiles. And once you have covered all the pavement, now it is the time for throwing the plaster.

One day of sunny temperature of two days of windy or cloudy time will make it! It will be your pride when inviting friends! We will meet for making the table that looks like the floor! It just depends on whether you liked this idea!

Good luck! Have fun!…
