Choosing a material for your floors can be overwhelming. Wood, tile, carpet, and vinyl are all common. Here at Solid State Tile, we love tile for floors. Here are five reasons why.
Return on Investment
Whether you are renting, residing in, or selling your home, tile will give you the best return on your investment, hands down. There’s a tile to suit any budget. Tile gives your home more aesthetic appeal and is far more cost effective than changing carpet between renters or repairing damaged wood. Not only will tile wear better, but the selection of neutral colors means the floor will be “in” despite changing design trends.
Tile comes in just about every color you can think of. The sky’s the limit on designs, and your own creativity when it comes to layout can turn even the most simple of tiles into fantastic designs. There are even tiles specifically made to look like hardwood!
Nothing can match the durability of tile. Wear and tear on other flooring types, especially in high traffic areas, makes for a lot of cleaning and a high repair/replace rate. This is particularly true for kitchens where the high potential for spills and accidents exist. Porcelain and ceramic tile are the smart way to go there for the long run.
Upkeep for tile flooring is simple! Just sweep, mop or vacuum. No extra attention needed. Cleaning up spills is a snap.
Unlike wood, vinyl or linoleum, ceramic and porcelain tiles are non-flammable. They are also easier to keep germ free, particularly when you have little ones crawling around. No splinters from damaged wood or cracked vinyl cornucopias of grime.
