Benefits of Ceramic Tile

kitchen with grey tile flooringWhen remodeling a room or house, a lot of people like to have tile done for their flooring. This is because they compliment the ambiance of a room, have different pattern schemes, can be custom made, and are easy to clean. With that in mind, there are many different types of tiles to choose from. Here at Tiles Gone Wild, we work with many tile suppliers to give our clients endless options to make the right selection for their project. Out of all the different styles of tile there are in the world, the most common that we see people request is ceramic tile. In addition, we recommend this type of tile to customers for several reasons.

These reasons include:

  • Ease of Maintenance – Ceramic tiling has a knack for being almost maintenance free when they have their sealant applied. For most tile floors, they only need to be cleaned as much as any other floor surface would need it. Ceramic, combined with grout, tiles basically impervious to water damage. This serves good for flooring purposes for bathrooms or kitchens where spills and water damage most likely occurs.
  • Repair – Ceramic tile, as with most tiles, are strong but over time can break due to wear and tear. Luckily, the repair process is a lot easier than with hardwood flooring. When you see a breakage in tile, just take out the broken pieces, clean the area, reinstall the new piece along with re-grouting. This takes less time than other flooring options, and is a reason many people go with ceramic tile for flooring.
  • Cost Effective – When picking tile the biggest factor going in is how much it will cost. Tile remains to be the cheapest option when comparing to hardwood and other flooring surfaces. What makes ceramic tile more attractive in regards to cost is the long term effects. Being easy to maintain and lasting long before any repairs have to be done, makes ceramic tile an attention grabbing product.
  • Design – Ceramic tiles have many different sizing variations, which gives a flexible aspect when designing a room with ceramic tiles. Ceramic tiles can range from a small 6″x 6″ to a larger 24″ x 24″ and more. In addition to size, there is style when it comes to ceramic tiles as you can have squaring options such as “brick to block” and “Flemish”.
