Ceramic tiles are becoming more popular as a flooring option for the home because of their stylish appearance, not to mention their easy to maintain qualities. They also come in different styles, colors, and designs, which means variety is something that you can expect with this type of flooring. Large tiles (measuring 12″ x 12″ and 16″ x 16″) for example, are very trendy, and look good in just about any type of room. Some interior designers suggest adding smaller tiles into patterns to create a unique design or simply add texture to a room. Ceramic tiles—to put it simply—are versatile, able to blend well with the overall aesthetic of the house, whether it is contemporary, rustic, Spanish, and so on.
Cleaning is a breeze.
One thing is for sure: with ceramic tiles, you can rest assured that cleaning will be easy peasy. Just use any generic cleanser, wipe off the tiles, and voila, you are done. It does not matter if you use a mop, a rag, or a sponge to clean ceramic floors. The whole cleansing process will take you minutes, an hour or two if you have a huge home with lots of rooms. Even water can wipe the tiles clean. You are lucky if you have tiles that are a blend of colors and textures as these hide the stains or debris quite well. Of course, this does not mean that you should forgo cleaning altogether but if you do not have time, at least you do not need to worry that your guests will notice.
D is for durable.
As long as you buy high quality ceramic tiles, you do not have to worry about them breaking or not lasting for many years to come.
The manufacturing process has improved over the years so that ceramic tile flooring are now very durable, waterproof even, which means that there will be no bubbles underneath unlike with laminate or hardwood flooring. For walkways and entry ways (read: high traffic areas), ceramic tiles are ideal, as well as for bathrooms, kitchens, and laundry rooms. Best of all, these tiles are easy to install and affordable to boot. It is not surprising at all that many homeowners prefer this type of flooring material over other the options.
