Tile flooring has beautified our homes and gathering areas for centuries. With its ability to beautify, customize, and protect your floors and walls, it’s no wonder that tile continues to capture our imagination to this day. There are thousands of incredible tile options, all of them crafted to stand the test of time.
At Weyburn Carpet One Floor & Home of Weyburn, SK, let us introduce you to the colourful world of tile. One of our favourite benefits of tile flooring and wall tile is the fact that it can go indoors and outdoors. If you’re thinking of installing tile floors or a tile accent wall soon, here are things you should know.
Which tile is the best option for you? Tile is made using a wide variety of materials. However, the vast majority are crafted from porcelain, ceramic, or stone. Porcelain and ceramic tile are molded from organic clay, which is then fired in a kiln. These tiles can be either glazed or left unglazed. Stone tile is carved out of slabs of natural minerals, including granite or marble.
Ceramic tile has come a long way. It’s a popular choice today because it fits a variety of decors, it’s durable and it’s easy to maintain. The high-density varieties of ceramic tiles, such as porcelain, were discovered to be especially great for bathrooms. Ceramic tile tends to hold up particularly well after prolonged water exposure. Other types of tile are more absorbent and may only last several years before they eventually crack under the pressure. Ceramic tile is an inexpensive option that always looks great. Customers can choose from a limitless number of colours and textures to get the most cohesive feel in their home.
Ceramic tile can be styled in any way you can imagine. For example, if you love the look of stone tiling, ceramic can be made to resemble the marble or granite look without having to apply an extra sealant to the floor or spend the extra money for stone. You can also purchase porcelain tiling that is made to look like natural wood. This is an especially smart choice if you want to keep a theme running through the rooms of your house. It's an economical choice as well as a practical one if you're looking to protect your house from water damage. This type of tile for your home is made to resist all the wear and tear that often comes from a busy home.
When trying to decide on the right kind of tile for your home, you may feel overwhelmed by the sheer level of options you have. While it's not the most permanent decision you'll ever make, the tile will be used for years.
A smartly selected tile can enhance any space. Most tile is naturally waterproof, and all are moisture resistant. Tile works wonderfully as flooring in indoor spaces and outdoor projects like patios, pool areas, and garden paths. It’s also a vivid and distinctive way to create an accent wall or backsplash.
