Use a rubber mallet to pound them into place. To remove a tile that is going in the wrong direction after it is set, insert a stiff putty knife under the tile and work it loose. Once you have applied adhesive to an area work quickly or it will begin to set up. As you lay tile, use the chalk lines and/or straight edge to make sure you are keeping the pattern in line.
Use a professional floor filler, such as Dependable, to fill and smooth out joints in the plywood before installing the new floor. If there is not at least ½" of clearance between the existing floor and the bottom of your cabinets, you may be a candidate for a floating floor. Once the subfloor is smooth, level, and dry, you are ready to plan the layout. If you envision a more ambitious floor—using tile in historically correct 9" x 9" squares or with an inlay design, for instance—you may want to opt for sheet goods to minimize waste.
Linoleum is still made using the original formula, which includes cork and linseed oil. Cork, grown on the tree of the same name, is almost wholly natural. Vinyl composition tile (VCT) is typically made of polyvinyl chloride chips, in a blend that usually includes a hefty percentage (20 to 25) of recycled or natural materials like limestone.
