Finishing painted or stenciled floors usually meant coating them with varnish, which mellows the colors. Today, you can protect a painted floor with several coats of clear, long-wearing sealer like polyurethane in a satin finish. For more authenticity, use an antique floor finish, like the one offered by Minwax, as the final topcoat.
Once the first tile is in place, align the next tile tight to the edges of the first and press down. Compression-fit the tiles to stay in alignment as necessary. After you have got a four-tile section down, stand up and give them a once-over before the adhesive is fully set. Make sure they butt up against each other in the correct pattern and line up with the main chalk line. If there is any adhesive on the tile surface, wipe it off with a damp rag.
If the first floor can be exited without having to go through the kitchen and open plan area, then this should not present a problem. In any case, it is sensible to look into fire suppression systems – such as sprinklers and smoke curtains – to limit the spread of fire and smoke throughout the home.
