Tip: Use tile polish to bring the shine back to dull ceramics. Put padding underneath heavy objects before sliding them across a tiled floor. Heavy items, such as furniture, can easily scratch tile. If scratches get down to the white part of the tile, you cannot buff them out. Ceramic tile sealers do not protect the tile from scratches; they only guard against stains.
In an older home, you may find the floor isn't square, which makes the job more complicated. Use the most obvious wall as a baseline, so those entering the room will see tile lines parallel to that wall; your job will look more even.
