Tiling Books

Relatively affordable as DIY projects go, tiling is also one of the most popular among homeowners. New tile can cover a multitude of sins and transform a space — from tiny entry to spacious kitchen — in a matter of hours, if it’s done properly. This book presents all of the information needed to take on a tiling project from start to finish, including planning and layout, installation, and upkeep — from tiling a kitchen counter or outdoor patio, to installing glass block in a shower, on a curve. From the FOR PROS BY PROS series, this book delivers pro-rated instruction guaranteed to get the job done right the first time. Complete DIY tile installation instructions with over 350 how-to, step-by-step photos; tool and material selection guides with full-color photography; design inspiration; the most up-to-date tile products and projects, such as recycled glass tile and other environmentally friendly and sustainable tile, new advancements for tile specifically engineered for outdoors, faux-stone tiles (made of more affordable materials), etc.; tile for all home projects including floors, walls, bathrooms, kitchens, and outdoors. This is the one stop shop for do-it-yourself tile installation instructions. *Detailed photos and easy-to-follow presentations for tiling floors, walls, countertops, and showers guide novices and experts alike.   *A two-tiered design offers instruction for common tiling situations plus additional information for unusual circumstances.   *This comprehensive guide covers basic and advanced tile techniques to plan patterns, measure and cut tiles, seal finished surfaces, and repair broken tile.   *Pre-start checklists detail the tools, materials, skills, and time needed to complete each job, while Stanley Pro Tips offer shortcuts to work easier, faster, and safer.   *Includes installation instructions for all types of ceramic tile, plus vinyl, laminate, carpet, and parquet tile products. Over 60 popular tiling projects come to life in nearly 700 vivid photographs, with professional advice to guide you through every stage of the process.   Nothing adds grace and value to a home like the timeless beauty of tile. Happily, the decorating options have never been more plentiful, as new products such as cork, glass mosaic, and river rock tile take their place alongside more traditional stone and ceramic tiles.
The ceramic tile renaissance continues, and in this major revision of America’s best-selling DIY tile book, all the newest designs and installation innovations are included. It's traditional with a twist.

This book shares all of the designer trends and prized secrets to allow readers to customize their homes with style.   Ceramic tile is the luxury surface of choice for today’s homeowners, and Black & Decker® The Complete Guide to Decorating with Ceramic Tile is the only book they’ll need to achieve professional-level designer tile installations while saving thousands of dollars.   The book includes more than 700 gorgeous color photos, more than 100 new to this edition. America’s best-selling book on do-it-yourself ceramic tile installation just got even better. *Clear, step-by-step instructions and stunning photos illustrate techniques to select, install, maintain, and repair tile.   *Dozens of projects for floors, walls, countertops, showers, backsplashes, and fireplaces.   *Lists of materials, time, skills, and tools needed for each project.   *Practical advice and tips to help DIYers choose colors, patterns, add decorative tiles, apply grout, and more. Everything a do-it-yourselfer needs to know about tiling floors, walls, counters, patios, and more can be found in Ultimate Guide to Ceramic & Stone Tile. Design and planning information helps readers prepare the site and select the right tile–ceramic, stone, vinyl, glass, and more. Chapters on tools and materials feature how-to photo sequences so even novices can tackle tile projects successfully. The emphasis is on solid, durable installations that can stand up to years of use in kitchens, baths, and other areas. The book also covers exterior applications, and includes a practical and complete guide to repairing and maintaining existing tile. Tile has been transformed in the popular imagination from a pedestrian material to a sought-after design element. Home centers, specialty tile shops, and Internet sources offer the average homeowner an amazing range of mass-produced, handmade, and custom tile types made of materials including ceramics, natural stone, metal, and glass. Organized by room, with chapters covering kitchens, bathrooms, living spaces, entries, and mudrooms, Tile Idea Book presents hundreds of photographs showing the effects created by all the major types of tile available today when installed in different settings: large rooms, such as kitchens, and small ones, such as bathrooms and entryways. It shows how color, pattern, and texture can be used to create special effects on floors and walls and provides specific information on how to recreate these effects. Also covered is the decorative use of tile in fireplaces and hearths, wainscoting, stairs, and halls, as well as in exterior settings such as terraces and patios.
