This is by far the most asked question and the hardest to answer.
- First of all figure out your square footage. If you need help calculating square footage this website will help.

Remember a lot depends on the size of your room, the type of project, the tile you choose, the pattern or lay out of the tile, existing conditions of the floor, etc.
The cost of ceramic tile plus installation is usually higher than other flooring options but because of it's durability, it's considered the least expensive in the long term. It will, in many cases last as long as the home and increase your homes value.
Wall tiles are not intended to be load bearing and are usually thinner, and softer. They are not intended to be used as floor tile.

Not really. Tile temperature is no different than anything else in the room. It just holds it's temperature better.
You can always install a heat mat under your tile to make it temperature controlled.
An under-tile warming system costs $1,100 or more for a 10x10-foot bathroom.

You are much better off using a grout in a medium or dark color to prevent this.

Ask Ron about the variety of grout adhesive to prevent staining.

The simple answer is yes they do. Have you ever put together a 5000 or even a 1000 piece puzzle? How about a 50 piece puzzle? Which one took you longer? Need I say any more?
