Replacing damaged tiles can seem fairly daunting. However, the home improvement gurus over at This Old House have broken down the process into six simple steps that are sure to give your kitchen or bathroom an affordable mini-facelift.

If you told me I could easily replace a broken tile six months ago, I never would've believed you. However, as a brand new resident of LA, I have been on a serious apartment hunt and recently came across a rental with a few cracked tiles in an otherwise very charming bathroom. The black and white tiles were classic and probably fairly inexpensive- but it got me thinking: if I took over this place, could I actually fix these little eyesores on my own?

Thankfully, the trusty geniuses at This Old House have broken down the process of replacing tiles in six easy steps – and if you have 45 minutes (plus a day for drying), you too can save those cracked areas.
