Do not spread too much mortar at once. If the mortar dries before you can set the tile, you'll have the additional problem of removing it. When you set the tile, only a light pressure is required. Depending on the thickness of your tile, you'll have to press it into the mortar a short distance. Make sure that each tile is even with the next. Mortar will come up over the sides of the tile, but this can easily be wiped away. Avoid resting hands or arms on the tile you've set. It's going to take a couple of hours before the mortar is completely dry. Grout the ceramic tile flooring, and wipe off any grout that gets on the tile.
It's also important to get the right equipment and tools for the project. You can buy most of the tools and materials you'll need at you neighborhood hardware store, or home center. For equipment that might over your budget like tile cutters, try asking your local home center or tool rental yard if they have the tools you need for rental. Basic ceramic tiling tools include A pair of safety glasses, heavy leather gloves, tile spacers, notched trowel, a handheld tile cutter, and a pair of tile nippers. Have some sandpaper handy for smoothing out cut edges. Sponges and clean dry rags will come in handy for cleaning and wiping off excess mortar material and grout lining from your newly-finished ceramic tiling floor. Of course, you can always consult a professional if you are hesitant over how to start installing ceramic tile on your floor. From choosing the right tiles and color, to tearing out existing ceramic tile floors without damaging the subfloor, to installing ceramic tile that will last you a lifetime, a home improvement professional will be able to help you with information, at the very least, or assist you when you start installing ceramic tile.
