Flooring options are one of the most important decisions you’ll make during your home remodel. The sea of hardwood, laminate, vinyl and carpet can be difficult to navigate. Ceramic tile has become a standard choice for bathrooms and kitchens but with a long list of benefits, it can be a great choice for any room in your home.
Ceramic tile is often chosen for bathrooms and kitchens because they are more water resistant than most flooring options. Cleaning up water that has splashed out of the sink is simple when you don’t have to worry about it soaking in. This is useful outside of the typical wet rooms too. Spilling wine at the dinner table can wreak havoc if you’re dining room is carpeted, but with tile it is as easy as grabbing a paper towel with warm water and wiping it up.
Tile maintenance is an easy process. If you really want to, you can skip chemical cleaners entirely, as your basic sweeping and mopping can go a long way in keeping you’re new ceramic flooring spotless.
The solid surface of ceramic tile can be a great addition to allergy prone households. It provides a disagreeable environment for allergens like dust, germs, mites and mold. Because they are so easy to clean, you can literally sweep away these unfriendly house guests.
For the environmentally conscious homeowner, ceramic tile installation may be a very attractive option. Many ceramic tiles are produced from recycled materials, and while they can cost precious energy to produce, they are extremely durable and can last a lifetime.
Versatility and variety are a couple of the most impressive benefits to choosing ceramic tiling for your home. You are sure to find something to suit any room of your house with the incredible diversity of sizes, shapes, colors and styles.
Many feel that ceramic tiles can make keeping your toes toasty in the winter, very difficult. It is true that ceramic tiling doesn’t do a good job of holding on to heat, but with rugs and slippers, these problems can be remedied. Once summer rolls around, the chilly tile will be a welcome way to cool down.
