Replacing Ceramic Tile Floor

I have ceramic tile in several rooms. I did not install it so I'm not sure what is beneath it. Based on the age of the home and the condition of the tile, it was probably installed by the builder 25 years ago.

My wife wants me to replace the tile with new tile in a different color. I think I should remove the old stuff completely.

How? What kind of problems can I expect to run into?

If the floor is concrete under the tile, you can use a demoliton hammer and a chisel called a scaling chisel, which is about 4 1/2" wide. You can then just chip up the tile and thinset and you will be ready to lay new tile. Just be ready for a large amount of dust.
