Finding the Right Tile for Your Laundry Room

Out of all the rooms in a house, your laundry room is the most likely to be overlooked. If you’re looking to add value to your home, it’s not the first room we’d recommend. At the same time, though, the right laundry room can make a regular chore more pleasant. 

Additionally, the fact that it isn’t focused on as much in many homes means it’s a great place to do work in order to make your property stand out from the rest. 

Today, we’ll discuss some of the qualities you’ll want your laundry room tile to have. We’ll also explain why we often recommend porcelain floor tiles in Delray to our clients.

Qualities to Look for in Your Laundry Room’s Floor Tile 

When finding the right tile for your laundry room, it’s important to keep practical considerations top of mind. Laundry rooms don’t experience as much foot traffic as other rooms, but they are likely to experience significant wear and tear. 

Instead of foot traffic, the laundry room is most notable as being a place where you can store dirty clothes until it’s time for them to get cleaned. 

Washing machines can also cause issues. If they spring a leak, you could need to replace your floor. Spilled bleach is another potential danger to keep in mind. 

All that is why we recommend finding a type of flooring that is: 

  • Moisture Resistant 
  • Durable 
  • Easy to Clean 

A little planning when determining how to tile your laundry room floor can save you plenty of headaches later if there’s a leak in your washing machine, or you simply get too busy to clean the room for a little while.

Why We Recommend Porcelain Tile 

It’s not hard to see why porcelain is our favorite material to recommend to customers. Along with being eco-friendly, it’s an extremely durable material. 

You don’t have to worry about scratches and stains, and it’s also non-porous. This means it doesn’t hold onto things the way other materials do. 

If you accidentally spill something on your floor, or even if you need to clean up mold or mildew, it’s easy to simply wipe up the mess without worrying about the porcelain itself being damaged. 

Along with all of these elements, it’s important to note that porcelain offers complete design versatility. Any design can be printed onto the glaze, which means that porcelain is an easy choice to recommend to people who already know what they want other parts of their laundry room to look like. 

Our friends at WhyTile put together a list of potential design ideas for using porcelain tile in your laundry room. We encourage you to check them out! If you need additional help, it can be useful to speak with an interior designer or even a tile expert.
