Tile Floors: Accentuating the Pros, Eliminating the Cons

How to Maximize the Benefits of Tile Floors

Tile is a beautiful, practical flooring surface, and it is a stylish and functional choice for many homes. Although there are pros and cons of tile floors, you can address most potential issues by carefully considering the type of tile you add to your home. With different contemporary tile materials from which to choose, your flooring will meet your specific needs.

Although some tile is slippery, there are a variety of types of tiles that are slip resistant, even when wet. Tile manufacturers rate tile for slip resistance. This means that some types of tile are appropriate for wet surfaces such as a pool deck, and they are also ideal for wet areas in the home, including bathroom flooring.

While floor tile is generally seen as a waterproof surface, this is not necessarily the case for ceramic tile. As a low-fired material, ceramic tile remains porous, and it will absorb spills and water. Porcelain tile is high-fired, which gives it a vitreous quality that is non-porous and waterproof. If you desire a truly waterproof flooring surface, porcelain tile is an excellent choice.
