Out With the Old Tile and in With Ceramic
When remodeling your kitchen or bathroom, one of the most important things you’ll need to think about is the type of flooring you want. When it comes to durability and beauty that’s tough to beat, ceramic tiles are often a top choice.
Ceramic Tiles – Durable and Strong
Ceramic tiles are common in flooring, backsplashes, and even walls. The tiles are typically made of clay that has been hardened in the oven and coated with a type of glaze.
Ceramic tiles come in many pretty designs, colors, and textures to add brilliance to your home. They are incredibly durable; many have been found in ancient ruins that date back almost 2,000 years and are still intact and pristine. They are difficult to crack, but even if a crack does happen, they are usually easy to replace.
Easy to Clean
Ceramic tiles are perfect in the kitchen and bathroom because they are easy to clean and do not harbor germs, which is a bonus in either room. Dirt, debris, and liquids do not absorb into the ceramic, but rest on the surface where they can be wiped away. This is great for those who suffer from allergies or asthma.
Hard and Cold
Ceramic tiles can, however, be difficult to stand on for long periods of time due to their hard texture underfoot. If used in the kitchen, a floor mat or area rug would be essential in places such as in front of the stove or sink where people tend to stand for long periods. If used in the bathroom, hardness should not be a factor, but ceramic
tiles can be very cold. Placing a bath mat in front of the shower can take care of any cold-foot concerns.
