replaced carpet with tile in a new house prior to moving in - easier on the tile layers.

We bought a new house a few years ago and when we decided to buy more tile, it was not available. Just bought another new house and this time I bought enough tile to do the areas we will want to do. It is stored in my garage until we get to it.

I have an Allamanda, about 1500 square feet. Had the entire house ceramic tiled before moving in. The look is great, I love it. Much less dusty I’ve noticed without the carpets.

Downside, the floors are hard, no cushion to walk on. Having no carpet to sort of buffer the sound makes the tv a little hard to understand. It probably wouldn’t be like this if I had some nice area rugs down, but that’s not an option for me at this time. I love my tile, which seems to help keep the house cool, and I’m glad I did it.

Just a quick opinion on floor installation of any kind. Having done hundreds of them, look into having the baseboards removed before installation and then replaced. The look is much cleaner and does not scream we had this done after the house was built and they put done quarter round molding to hide it. Also one less thing to clean and paint in the future.
