You'll need the tile, of course. Your choice of design is entirely your own, but consider how the design will fit in with the rest of the room. Consider, also, the room's function. Kitchen floors are always exposed to food and water drips. Dark ceramic tile flooring would tend to make seeing these drips more difficult when you're mopping the floors. Light, solid colors are most appropriate for kitchen floors, while darker tile with simple patterns go best in bathrooms. Shop around at local hardware and home improvement stores or on the net. If you don't find what you want at your local stores, you're sure to find it on the net. You can get ceramic tiles from any country on the net. You're sure to find the design you have in mind there.
Unfortunately, the food-safeness of a glazed or handpainted ceramic tile is difficult to determine unless you can speak with the maker because of the fact that many glazes said to be food-safe are not. Which is one of the great advantages of handmade tiles – the ceramic artist can tell you if it is food-safe. Here at Handmade Ceramics and Fine Art Studios we make our own glazes based on the recipes tried and tested. If you can't find out whether your ceramic art tile is OK with food you're better off not using it for that purpose. Use it as a ceramic wall tile or if it is durable and mostly flat, for a trivet.
Certain things have to be taken into consideration when removing ceramic tiles. The surrounding bricks and walls should not be disturbed while removing ceramic tiles. Furthermore, during the removal process, gloves and safety glasses should be used to protect your hands and eyes. If working in a bathroom or shower area, it is preferable to cover the tub with an old blanket or a piece of carpet, in order to protect it from scratches. Electric clipping hammers and chisels are some of the common tools employed for removing ceramic tiles.
Ceramic tiles, kiln-fired clay items, have now become a popular flooring option, due to its features such as durability and ability to resist fading, staining, scratches, and other chemical and thermal reactions.

Among the basic tools required for installing ceramic tiles are tape measure, hammer, chalk line, fiber glass tape, rubber gloves, tile nippers, dust mask, safety glasses, tile cutter, and marking pencil.
