Vinyl, carpet and parquet floor tiles are in the easy-to-install category because they are usually backed with adhesive and with a little experience cutting them can be mastered. In many homes vinyl tiles are laid and create an almost instant makeover for a kitchen or family room. Carpet tiles are easy on the feet in a bedroom or anywhere you want a nice soft surface underfoot. And the tiles can also be used as an area rug when that's the look you want. You can't beat parquet tiles in a living or dining room to add a touch of elegance and and create a handsome backdrop for area rugs. Ceramic floor tiles are laid in thinset mortar with grout and require more time and talent, but it's well worth the effort. The durable surface of this tough material makes it ideal in heavy traffic areas like a foyer, back entry or bathroom.
