Installing Tile Over Tile
Installing a new tile job over existing tile is a great way to update the look of your room without having to remove the old floor. It saves money when compared to paying someone to pull out the old tile. Or, if you are doing it yourself, it will save a ton of time and possible frustration.
The most crucial part of any tile installation is ensuring that you've got a level, flat surface when the job is done. While a leveling system by itself doesn't guarantee a flat floor/wall, when combined with accepted installation practices and quality workmanship, they can aid in giving you a successful install.

The Importance of Lighting Placement
Even with a perfect tile installation, some light distortion caused by the natural variation in the tile's surface is inevitable. Lighting can take the smallest variance and cast a large shadow. The severity of the shadow is determined by the angle of the light. Obviously the most critical view is seen when the light source washes straight down or across the surface of the tile, making lightning placement a critical aspect on every project.
