I live in a 90 yr. old house. The previous owners tried to update it but obviously had difficulty. My kitchen floor is currently laid with 12 in. ceramic tile. They didn't know what spacers were for nor did they level the floor before they laid the tile . There is an area from the kitchen to the 1/2 bath adjacent to it where there is an obvious height difference from 1 tile to the next, maybe 1/4in. or less, and because they didn't level the floor some of the tile is starting to crack.
Now here's my quandary. Do I need to rip up the entire floor? Can I level a floor on top of the existing tile then install something else? Being a 90 yr. old house I have no idea what's underneath the ceramic tile. What are some options? I would like to rip out the entire kitchen because they installed cheap press-board cabinets and mounted them at the incorrect height. They're too high, my husband is 5'2" and can barely reach the 2nd shelf, I thought it was the top shelf no one was supposed to reach. Should I just bide my time till I can redo the kitchen?
Thanks in advance.
