I have a very old ceramic tile floor in my bathroom. The tiles are 1 inch and black and white. Some have broken and others are cracked. The previous owner looks like he just filled in the removed tiles with cement. It looks awful. Is there a simple way to replace the entire floor? Can I simply tile over it? Or do I have to get om my hands and knees and chisel the stuff out? The bathroom is floor area is only about 5x6.

I would tile over the old tile. Just make sure nothing else is loose, clean the floor thoroughly, and use multi-purpose thin set as your adhesive. You have to remove the toilet.
