Lay 12-inch floor tiles
You'll find a wide selection of 12-inch floor tiles at home and floor centers. Those with adhesive backing are installed by removing the backing and firmly pressing them in place. Those requiring adhesive are laid down after spreading floor adhesive with a trowel. Both types of tile require a sound, level floor as a base. You can install tiles over the existing floor, applying an embossing leveler to smooth any texture on the old floor so it doesn't show through the new tiles. Apply a floor-leveling compound if there are any cracks.
