Vitrified Tiles are composed of quartz, silica, clay and feldspar. These materials are combined together with the process of vitrification. The tiles are manufactured by the Hydraulic press method. In this process two kinds of colour are fed into the machine resulting in a very thick layer of a double coloured design on the tile. This layer of colour and design is around 3-4mm thick. These tiles are good for high traffic areas.
Using your chalk lines for reference, line up the first or starter tile. Then lay down just enough adhesive to accommodate four tiles. If you have chosen variegated tiles in contrasting colors, lay them so that the pattern in the lighter tiles are at right angles to the pattern in the darker tiles. This is called quarter-turning.
You can trace the use of brick in the kitchen to colonial times, when locally made, hand-molded pavers were typical in above-ground basements or detached summer kitchens. Brick is an unusual choice today, but at least one company has gotten around that with thin brick look-alike tiles that express an early American feel. Patterns include basketweave, running bond, herringbone, and a number of variations.
