It can be very difficult to figure out the perfect flooring for a specific room in your home. To pick the perfect flooring you need to think about the various conditions that it will be exposed to. One choice that works for many different rooms and activities is ceramic tile. Although ceramic often costs more than some other flooring many people believe that its improved performance and durability are worth the investment. Bathrooms and kitchens are both good places to install ceramic flooring. Moisture which can easily damage other types of flooring can be found in both these rooms. Ceramic tile is also a good choice to handle the temperature swings that can often be found in the kitchen. Ceramic tile will also be a top performer in beach homes as it tends to perform well in the moist sea air. It is also an excellent choice in the warm and humid climate found in many coastal areas. Many people are wary of installing ceramic floor tile in those places where the temperatures come down during the winter months. You don’t have to suffer through cold floors all winter long, scatter some rugs around. These rugs add warmth in addition to a touch of style. Ceramic tiles are very easy to maintain. If you live in a humid area you may occasionally need to remove mold with a ceramic tile cleaning solution that can be found at home centers and discount stores. If you use the proper products your floors will keep looking great for the life of your home. Ceramic flooring will need regular sweeping and mopping.
If you have not considered tile before, you will be amazed at the wide variety of colors, patterns, sizes, shapes, and textures that are now available. With the advanced manufacturing processes being used today, tiles have become easier to maintain, more affordable, and can complement any interior design.
Ceramic Tile:Ceramic tile is a natural product made up of clay, minerals and water. Ceramic tile comes in two forms – glazed and unglazed.
Glazed Tile:Glazed ceramic tile is a popular choice for your interior floors and walls and offers unlimited decorating possibilities. The glazed tiles have a special ceramic coating that is applied to the body of the tile which gives the tile its color and finish.
Unglazed Tile:There is no glazing or any other coating applied to the tile. The color is the same on the face of the tile as it is on the back resulting in very durable tiles that do not show the effects of heavy traffic. The most common unglazed tiles are the red quarry tiles or the granite looking porcelain ceramic tiles used in heavy commercial areas.
