Tiles,natural Stone

I want to use tiles in my house to improve its beauty but i don't understand which kind of tiles are used in now days, my house is very old but it has good building material and very good infrastructure.

For tile styles ,I suggest you go to Houzz.com and get a few ideas---you also need to consider what will look right in an older home---or is appropriate with the architectural style of the building--

If you will post your floor joist size--unsupported lenght--spacing--and type of wood-someone will run a span chart for you and let you know if your floor will support tile or stone.

I'll move this thread to 'tile' for you.---Mike---
