When it comes to choosing flooring in your home, the variety of choices can be overwhelming. You have to find the right combination of value, style, and long-term wear. You’ll be living with your floor for a long time; you want it to look great and hold up.
For many people, tile flooring is a great choice. Here are some reasons I think you should consider tile when choosing flooring for your home.
With tile, you can keep it simple and all one color, or you can get crazy and create a pattern. Tile floor gives you endless options, and flexibility you don’t have with other types of flooring. If you want to do something creative but need ideas, our staff can help you create the perfect design.
If installed properly, tile flooring lasts for years and years. The key phrase there is “if done properly.” Investing in a professional to install your tile floor will guarantee that it lasts for years to come. I like to call tile a forever floor.
Once your tile floor is installed, there’s very little maintenance involved. Tile is incredibly easy to clean, and doesn’t require harsh chemicals or renting a steam cleaner. Outside of regular mopping or wiping down, there isn’t much you need to do to keep tile looking great. Most of the maintenance with tile is related to the grout joints and depending on what type of grout you use you can make that stain-proof as well!
Tile typically has a higher square foot price than most other types of flooring due to the labor and materials but when you factor the life-cycle cost of tile to other flooring products you can easily see the value you create.This, combined with the durability and low maintenance factor, makes tile a great choice for those who are on a budget but still want a beautiful floor.
