Why Choose Porcelain?
Many homeowners choose porcelain tiles over other flooring options for several reasons. Not only are they beautiful, but they also add personality to any room of the house. Porcelain tiles:
Are durable in high traffic
Resist scratches and stains
Vary in styles and color
Why Choose Ceramic?
For many of the same reasons people adore porcelain, they're a fan of ceramics as well. Offering the same overall aesthetics, durability, and low maintenance, these make fantastic choices for both kitchens, bathrooms, or anywhere else, indoor or out!
Shared Benefits of Tile Floors
Unlike carpeting or hardwood, tiles don't attract dust, dirt, animal hair, mites, or pollen. If you or another household member has moderate-severe allergies, consider ceramics. Much of the same is true for kitchens. Cleaning the dishes and preparing meals can leave a floor both wet and dirty. Ceramic and porcelain tiles are nonporous, so no food particles or water can leach beneath to cause problems later.
When you're looking to redo a kitchen or bathroom, it's important to consider the elements the floor will face. In bathrooms, for example, showers create humidity. Additionally, water is bound to contact the floor, which can be disastrous for some flooring options.
Bang for Your Buck
In general, tiles of all materials are less expensive than hardwood. Additionally, tiles are a lot stronger of material than wood, such as oak or maple. But if you're a fan of natural cherry or other hardwoods, many tiles now mimic the wood aesthetic.
Porcelain and ceramic are among the easiest surfaces to keep clean. The reason being is that they're stain-resistant and sport an antimicrobial surface. Simply wipe away the dirt and grime, and the tiles are clean. Additionally, wood floors need a resealing treatment every five years. Sealing allows the wood to be damp-proof once again. Another maintenance measure absent in tiles is waxing. Wax restores its shine and increases wood's durability.
Installing tiles is a lot less complicated than laying down hardwood floors. If this is a weekend project, tiles may be the best choice depending on the size of your room. There is simply less involved in the process, and costly cutting mistakes aren't of any concern.
