Tiles have been around for as long as we can remember, and there’s a reason they are still popular for today’s flooring. Not only are they easy to clean and maintain, but with today’s technology, tile can replicate just about anything. They also come in many different sizes and shapes to fit just about any dečor.
With all the different choices available, it can be challenging to narrow it down to the right tile. Let’s take a look at some of the options you can choose from.
Luxury Vinyl Tile
Luxury Vinyl Tile continues to grow in popularity because of its warmer, softer, and quieter appeal. The tiles come in a variety of sizes and styles and are extremely durable. They can be grouted just like other tile types, although the grout is acrylic, which is much more stain resistant. It also does not require any sealing.
Porcelain tiles are popular in all areas of the home, but specifically great for areas that endure moisture, like a bathroom. The reason being is that porcelain is water resistant. Porcelain also comes in a variety of shapes and sizes, making it a popular choice in any room.
Ceramic tiles can be used just about anywhere in a home. Similar to porcelain, ceramic tiles are resistant to water. So in addition to flooring, ceramic tiles can be used for walls — perhaps in the shower — or even on countertops.
If done properly, the beauty of natural stone can create a focal point like none other in your home, whether it’s flooring or a design on your walls. If used in a room with moisture, be sure the tiles are sealed to provide the water resistance that is needed.
Tile continues to make its place in the flooring world with the ability to resist water while providing many shapes and styles. It’s best to assess the room you wish to place tile and go from there. As always, if you need any advice, we are only a phone call away!
