Kitchen and Bathroom Flooring
When it comes down to how durable tile is, you can expect it to be resistant to moisture, heat, and staining. That is why it is so popular in kitchens and bathrooms. There are even tile options that feature slip resistance, which is perfect for bathrooms. Tile is also versatile in terms of style and comes in a variety of shapes, sizes, patterns, colors and more.
When it comes to residential tile options porcelain and ceramic are the two most common options. It is important to remember that all porcelain is ceramic, but not all ceramic is porcelain. Porcelain tile is denser than ceramic, so it is more resistant to moisture and even heat. Ceramic tiles are light-weight, budget-friendly, and come in a variety of colors. How durable a tile is can also play a role in its functionality. If you install a durable tile like porcelain in a heavily trafficked area, you won’t have to worry about wear.
Shower tiles are made to be extremely resistant to heat and moisture, and since they are tile they are super easy to keep clean. Porcelain is the most common tile used in showers because it absorbs less the 0.5% moisture. A tiled shower in your bathroom not only adds style but also value to your space. With shower tile, you can choose to match the tile theme throughout your home or choose a completely new design.
Kitchen and Bathroom Backsplash
Backsplash tile tends to be an overlooked, inexpensive way to update your kitchen or bathroom. This means you do not have to worry about ripping up your flooring or tearing out your shower. Wall tile and backsplash tile are durable and easy to clean. Unlike wallpaper and paint, they will never fade or discolor. When it comes to humidity, tile will not peel like wallpaper tends to. You can choose from different patterns or create a picture on your wall. With backsplash tile the possibilities are nearly limitless. Backsplash tiles can either be porcelain or ceramic, and other materials can be mixed in too to create more dimension like metal and glass.
