I'm trying to decide between laminate flooring, since I could install it myself, or wood-look ceramic tile, which until now I believed I'd have to have someone else install. I was convinced the tile was too expensive, but it looks like I can get it for less than $2.50/sq ft. I'm installing the same flooring throughout the condo, including the kitchen, excluding the bathroom (different tile).
My family and I are pretty handy, I can't remember the last time my father hired a professional to do anything related to home or automotive. This video makes me think that as long as we studied what we're doing, it wouldn't be too difficult to lay the flooring ourselves and achieve professional results. Is it really as simple as this video makes it look? I know the devil is always in the details, what commonly sets a DIY job apart from a professional job? I'd be going with 1/16 grout, as I want the floors to look like hardwood.
