I am rennovating an old house and could use a little help.I am debating on putting ceramic tile or formica on the counter tops.I have picked out a tile i love, i saw it on display at local hardware store,but contrary to the smooth tiles usually seen on counter tops it has a rough finish.Is this a problem, will it be hard to clean,is there some kind of clear I can put on top? Also what is the best way to tile a room,what is the best and easiest way to make sure its square and center, meaning that the bordering tiles be fairly equal in size?Please help me I really love to do my own work but I am a mechanic and I am lost when I get to carpentry but I hope to learn alot by the time I am finished my house. Thanks great forum!!!

Hi Tanko,

I wonder if you could be just a bit more specific. "Rough" tiles? If they look like they'll be hard to clean, they will be hard to clean. There are sealers, but they won't change the texture of the tiles or grout.
