I really didn't like the bathroom floor, but didn't want to spend thousands and have contractors in my house for days.

I got the idea for this on Instagram and decided to go for it.  The tiles cost me less than €65, and they came in the mail in less than two weeks.  It took me a weekend to complete.

TIP: The tiles I used were too thin.  If I do this over, I'll get thicker tiles and apply grout, for a less "DIY look," but for now I am just happy not to see the original floor.

WHAT I USED:
 

STEP 1

Mark and cut the tiles.  I used 30cm X 30cm tiles, and cut them into four equal strips 7.5cm X 30cm

STEP 2

Arrange the tiles in a herringbone pattern using a 45° triangle ruler to start off.

STEP 3

Start by creating a border around the edges.  Then lay a central line and expand from there.

TIP

If you get the extra-thin tile, don't fold to remove the backing; you may damage the tile and keep it from sticking to the floor.  Instead, use a pair of tweezers.
