5 Benefits of Ceramic Kitchen Tile
- kitchen remodeling
Ceramic tile is a durable type of flooring that has been used by various civilizations over several millennia. In all of that time, ceramic flooring has never gone out of style. Even today, tiling your floor with ceramics continues to be a popular choice. At McHales KBA, we can help you learn what makes this kind of flooring an appealing choice for your kitchen.
Here are five ways ceramic tile can be a great choice for your kitchen’s flooring:
Ceramic tile is highly durable and resistant to scratches and heat. If you properly maintain and clean your flooring, it has the potential to last for centuries. In addition, it’s also relatively simple to repair it. If one of the tiles becomes broken or cracked from a severe impact, you can simply replace it.
Easy to maintain
Speaking of maintenance, tile is comparatively easy to maintain. Dirt, stains, and liquids of all kinds rest on top of the tile and can easily be wiped up. If the tile does get stained, you can use just about any heavy-duty cleaner without damaging the tile. All you have to do to regularly maintain it is to sweep or vacuum it with a soft brush attachment to pick up loose debris and dirt. The ease of cleaning also helps keep your home allergen-free.
Plenty of design options
Modern manufacturing methods give tile users plenty of ways to customize their flooring. It’s possible to mix and match solid tiles to make patterns or to accent them with custom designs or motifs. In addition, its possible to print tiles to resemble other materials, like hardwood or natural stones. Finally, tiles can be cut and shaped in a variety of designs, like triangles or planks.
Glazed tiles are highly water-resistant
If you make sure to install glazed tiles in your kitchen, you won’t have to worry about water and other stains. Glazing gives your tiles a hard protective top layer that makes them much more resistant to humidity. This reason is why ceramic tile is used so often in bathrooms, kitchens, and laundry rooms. However, if your tiles aren’t glazed, you should make sure to seal them as well. The grout in between tiles is also susceptible to moisture and stains, so make sure to seal it as well.
Increased home value
If you know you won’t be staying in your current home, a kitchen remodeling might be a good idea. Newly-installed ceramic tiles look very nice and are likely to be attractive to people looking at your home. This practical and attractive flooring may cost a lot up front, but it can be a very good investment.
