Six of one, half a dozen of the other?

I’ve been thinking about whether to try tackling laying ceramic/porcelain tile in the bathroom myself.  I’ve never done it before so I’m taking into consideration the likelihood that I’d screw something up while trying to save money by doing it myself.  This is one of those things that seems less easy to correct if it’s screwed up the first time.  I will be asking a flooring professional to give me an estimate and recommendations about the process.  Meanwhile, I’ve been reading up on what I’ve seen in home improvement shows and watching how-to videos like the ones on RemodelingMySpace.com:

 We have a few more pressing projects to tackle first, but it’s definitely a nagging question in the back of my mind in the meantime.
