Once you have your tile, you can pre-cut tiles that will be placed at the edges of the floor if the tile is too large. This means you should do some measuring first. You can also cut the tile while you're laying it, but then you have to be sure you haven't laid down the mortar until you've made the necessary cuts. Mortar that is only partially dried might not bond with the tile when you set it. You can use a wet ceramic saw or a utility knife to do the cutting. Which you use depends on the thickness of your ceramic tile flooring. To set your ceramic tile flooring, you'll also need mortar and grout. These are easily purchased at any hardware or home improvement store. You'll also need a wet tile saw to cut tile, when required, and a trowel to spread the mortar or adhesive in which you set the tile. You can also use spacers which separate the tiles from each other in an even manner.
The kind of ornamentation of the ceramic tile is important too. For a ceramic countertop or tabletop, the tiles should be flat. For a backsplash the tiles can have low relief but high relief will be difficult to clean and is not generally advised. Fireplaces, murals, mosaics and facades can be either flat, have low relief or high relief and low fire glazes are OK in these applications. 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.
