A Guide for Bathrooms, Kitchens, and Beyond
Whether you’re using it for flooring or your walls, there are a lot of benefits to choosing tile. For one, and it may surprise some, but it’s a great choice for increasing the air quality of your home because tile doesn’t absorb bacteria or harbor mold and mildew. Tile is also easy to clean and doesn’t make use of harsh chemicals such as formaldehyde. It’s also free from the carcinogenic toxins that are in materials such as PVC and is good for the environment thanks to the use of recycled materials in the manufacturing process.
What drives most homeowners to drool over tile is that it’s also a very stylish choice. This is the case whether you’re aiming for a minimalist look that’s contemporary, smooth, and simple, or for patterns and contrasts that bring in character and charm. The other cool thing about tile is that it can be used almost anywhere in the house, which is great if you’re looking for a new floor or wall material for your home renovation. But as any tiler will tell you, not all tile materials are equal, and some will be better suited for some applications than others. Certain tile materials will be more at home on your kitchen floor, and others will look just dandy on your bathroom wall.
Speaking of bathroom walls, ceramic tiles are a classic choice for anyone looking to spruce up their bathroom with some extra color and style. Ceramic’s water, stain, and scratch-resistant qualities make it an excellent choice for any interior space that gets wet or dirty often, such as bathrooms and kitchens. Ceramic tiles are also easy to cut and install, making them the ideal choice for custom powder rooms, wetrooms, and modern kitchens alike. To top it off ceramic tile is quite easy to clean with just a little bit of elbow grease. Thanks to its thinness, ceramic has great heat transfer properties which make it the best material to use with underfloor heating. This makes it a prime choice for homes in colder climes.
