I am looking for Laufen ceramic tile

Charleston White 141158

If I can't find it and need to replace the it okay to lay ceramic tile over

existing floor tiles?

What is the best way to remove ceramic tile?

If you can get one off the floor intact with the back clean enough to see, a salesperson at a distributer MIGHT be able to identify it but since it's over twenty years old I wouldn't really count on it. It looked like you said you live in Miami, which is a magor port for incoming tile and stone for this country so it could really have come from anywhere. There's thousands of different tiles out there. Plus even if you could identify it; they most likely don't make it anymore and if they had some laying around the dye lot won't match at all.

Your best bet is to get creative. You tore a wall down? Can you put some kind of transition border there? Can you take out a little more to create some kind of pattern with a few new tiles?

Also did you check around your attic or other places in your house to see if the original installer left enough extras that you could use at this point? Or even just to help identify the tile from the box ends?

on the back of the tile it says: serenissima made in italy with tiny pink curve lines from the front view; and a size of 13 3/4x 13 3/4. I could remove some of the hiding area but no guarantee that it will come out in one piece.
