How do I Lay a Tiled Floor in Small Conservatory to Replace Existing Carpet?

Postby smudger2468 » Mon Apr 20, 2015 4:01 pm

I have a reasonably small conservatory that currently has carpet on the floor. I'm looking to remove the carpet and lay tiles down. It is a concrete floor under the carpet. Can someone please advise how to do this? Do I need to apply something to the concrete first before laying the tiles? Do I need particular tiles for a conservatory?
Please advise.

Thank you.

Simply Build It

I would lay a self level compound on the floor before laying the tiles, any floor tiles will be suitable

I think the same. Simply ensuring that the surface is level before you lay the tiles is all you need to do. I must say, I have never come across a conservatory with carpet on the floor before
