The Pros and Cons of Tile Flooring
The most common type of tile for home flooring would be porcelain, specifically because it is a lot more durable than the traditional ceramic variety. People typically opt for this if they’re trying to maintain a more contemporary aesthetic throughout their home—tiles are no longer confined to just the bathroom. With the right color and finish, they can certainly make a space feel a lot more refined but in a very subtle manner. That said, there are a few pros and cons that you need to consider before deciding on this material for your home. Check out the short list below.
- Very durable. Porcelain tiles are actually fired at a much higher temp when compared to ceramic ones. This means that its finish would be harder and its material is also a lot denser. These tiles are meant to last a lifetime if given ample care and maintenance.
- Hygiene. As it is a non-porous surface, cleaning is a breeze and no stains would stick to it. All you really need is a clean rag to wipe off any spills and you’re good to go. It is especially great for households that have kids—moms would definitely find cleaning up after their children much easier on tile flooring.
- It is not DIY friendly. Most people these days prefer doing the bulk of the work when it comes to their home renovations. Not only would they be able to save money that way, but it also lends the work a more personal touch. Ceramic tiles, however, are a little hard to deal with and may require professional hands if you want the job done right.
These are just a few of the things you should consider when looking at different tiles to use as flooring for your home. Do keep in mind that there are other varieties aside from ceramic, so it all depends on your personal preferences and needs. Always consider what would work best with your home before aesthetics.
