Ceramic tile is a durable and attractive flooring option for practically any room of the home. In these cases, you must grind down the ceramic floor tiles so that they fit around these objects. Grinding ceramic tile can be tricky since the hardness is similar to glass and it can crack.

Sand the tiles with a hand orbital sander and 220-grain sandpaper. Sandpaper with a 220-grit will remove the shine from the tile, but wont leave permanent marks. It will also rough up the surface. Check to make sure the tiles appear scratched and feel rough after they have been sanded.

Cuts. The angle grinder excels at helping make angle cuts against a tile wet saw, which is designed for straight cuts. Cut directly down into the surface of the tile, making gentle passes across the lines of your cut while holding the blade of the grinder vertically against the tile and along the mark.

To give the edge a clean, water-tight finish, place a piece of masking tape one grout joint away from the edge of the last tile. Fill this gap between the tile and the masking tape with a smooth bead of caulk. This will finish the edge without extra tiles.

Yes, sandpaper. You must remember to use very fine-grit sandpaper, and the porcelain must remain wet at all times. As long as the porcelain is wet, the sandpaper will float on the surface and will not scratch it.

First, you will want to smooth the cut tile edge, then add the bevel. When adding the bevel back hold the file at a 45 degree angle to the edge of the tile. Gently rub along the entire tile side, and for harder stones apply more pressure. Time will vary depending on tile material and tool selected.

Porcelain tiles have sharp edges when cut, especially if you used tile nippers to trim them. Nippers trim away small chunks of material, which leaves behind a rough, jagged edge. Those sharp edges could present a hazard to bare feet on a finished floor. However, smoothing them out takes very little time and effort.
