Benefits of Tile Flooring For Your Home
Ceramic tile flooring is a beautiful and functional addition to any home, especially for those areas where water or stains are a concern. Technological advances in tile production allow for a variety of ceramic floor tile options. Homeowners have more choices in the type and color of tile flooring. The traditional ceramic tiles, porcelain, and stone tiles each offer something different to a room. Tile is durable for high traffic areas, versatile in appearance, customization, and can be water resistant for areas like bathrooms or outdoor patios.
Ceramic flooring tile comes in a glazed format, with a thick protective layer over each tile, or an un-glazed form, which does need sealing to protect the surface and grout from liquids. The durable tiles are difficult to crack, but if one is damaged, it is relatively simple to replace. After proper installation, and continued maintenance and care, the flooring option can added value to your home for years.
Maintenance for ceramic flooring is relatively simple because dirt and spills are easily swept, vacuumed, wiped, or mopped away. The naturally hard surface of ceramic tiles does not attract dust, dirt, pollen, or microorganisms. The hard surface helps promote a healthy air environment for those suffering from allergies.
Ceramic tile is a wonderfully versatile flooring option due to advances in tile technology. The manufacturing techniques produce solids, prints, or hardwood and natural stone appearances. The tiles are easily cut into different shapes, such as planks or triangles for accents or patterns. Homeowners have the option to mix and match solids, prints, and shapes to add a fantastic visual accents or design. This versatility can allow the homeowner to create a unique look to any room or outdoor area.
