Choosing the right tile for your lifestyle

There are many reasons to choose tile flooring. It could be that you’re looking for another level of elegance. You might want to take advantage of the durability and long lifespan it offers. Or, you might be drawn to the sustainability of tile, since some recycled content is used in its manufacture.

Whatever your reasons, tile makes a great choice for floors throughout your entire home. Some people choose to place tile in bathrooms and kitchens because they are resistant to water and moisture. However, the fact is, tile is a great choice for any room in your home.

Ceramic or porcelain?

These two types of tile are often named interchangeably; however, there are some differences that you should know about. First, ceramic tile isn’t as dense as porcelain tile, and therefore not as resistant to water, dampness and humidity. It is easier to install though, and some people choose it for this reason.

Ceramic tile is also more decorative, as the glass glaze can be very different from the underlying color of the tile itself. While this is a great choice when opting for a more personalized design scheme, it’s important to note that chips and cracks can show very easily. Porcelain, on the other hand, is often the same color throughout the entirety of the tile and chips don’t show as much on them.
