Linoleum tile is commonly used in kitchens, bathroom, and entry ways for easy to take care of floors. Installing linoleum tile is a very straightforward process that is well within the skill sets of a general do-it-yourselfer.

Cutting linoleum tile can be something that you should take your time doing. It is not a hard process, but when you have the right tools to do the job it is a much easier process.

Straight Edge
As with any type of cutting, a straight edge is an important part of the cut. A straight edge can me any thing that has at least on perfectly straight edge to it. Many home centers will sell a metal straight edge that is commonly used, but you can make your own straight edge with a table saw, a sharp blade, and a good rip fence.

Sharp Cutting Tool
A regular utility knife can do the job of cutting the linoleum tile, but it can also be difficult. Line your straight edge up and work the utility knife over the back of the tile several times to make a clean cut.

Your best bet would be to buy a vinyl tile cutter from a home improvement center. These cutters easily cut through vinyl tile with little problem.
