Good looking pics, just make sure the floor is clean for the P&S tiles a lunan underlayment would be good to use. I have seen that over time some tiles will shrink and show lines I like to use vinyl for the bathroom and even kitchens too. Good job !!!

Thanks! To my surprise under the carpet there's a pad. The pad isnt glued down. They used the cabinets and furnature to hold it down. Im gonna cut along the edges, aplly the tile then put trim up to hide any carpet showing

LOL!!

Just a suggestion. Get a putty knife and hold that against the wall while you draw a REAL carpet knife along.

If you don't want to buy a knife... so to the kitchen and get the sharpest kitchen knife you can find... BE careful... never pull towards you ... pull away, off to one side. Then hurry and sharpen and replace the knife before your wife finds out.

As an ex-cook I have a chefs set of knives I no longer use. I refuse to go back to that profession.... I have a cleaver that will go through checken bones one swing. EXTREMELY sharp. That may work! Lol

The putty knife will work fine as said, also don't try to hold the knife at 90 degrees or up to the wall which ever hand you cut with hold it at a 45 degree it will let the blade go slightly under the edge and should make a clean cut

Nice! Glad you got it trimmed up well, with a kitchen knife . Nothing worse than a plan going wrong.

When you have an opportunity, I would like to see pictures.
