Salvaging Ceramic Floor Tile

Posted by Stew on February 2nd, 2003 06:40 AM

I recently bought a 30-year-old home and love the glazed ceramic tile flooring. I will be totally remodelling & expanding the kitchen, to include removal of a peninsula. I need to fill the area left by the peninsula with the same 8" tile as the rest of the floor, but the previous owner told me that they were unsuccessful in finding the tile. I have to remove about 60 sq. feet of the tile in another area to make room for the new base cabinets. The area I need to fill is about 15 sq. feet. What is the best way to remove the existing tiles without breaking them so I can use them to cover the floor area left by the removed peninsula? I don't mind if some break, as long as I get enough to cover the space. Your response/e-mail is greatly appreciated. I welcome all experiences. Also, if you know a place that deals in discontinued tiles, please let me know.
