The Elegance and Versatility of Ceramic and Porcelain Tile

 
Are you perhaps considering introducing the polished refinement and versatility of tile flooring to your bathroom, kitchen, or dining room? Top 10 Floors is there for you! Our showroom experts are only too pleased to coach you through what to look out for when choosing a type of ceramic or porcelain tile for your home makeover.

The Advantages of Ceramic Tile Flooring

Glazed ceramic tile flooring is water repellant, created with a protective overlay that coats the ceramic material, thus making it impervious to water. Since glazed ceramic tiles are water resistant and do not absorb liquids, ceramic tile is also stain resistant. These resistant qualities cause tiles to be naturally repellent to any high humidity issues and damage. Ceramic's excellent properties make them an ideal tile for use in humid or wet environments like kitchens or bathrooms.

Ceramic tile flooring is remarkably strong and hard-wearing, making them difficult to chip or crack. When installed by professionals and properly maintained, ceramic tiles can easily last upwards of 20 years or more. However, should a ceramic tile ever chip or crack, replacing that single section of tile is a relatively simple process.
 
 
Ceramic tile flooring is quite simple to care for and maintain. Homeowners can quickly wipe or mop up stains, dirt, or liquids on its surface. Regular care should include weekly sweeping, mopping or vacuuming with a soft brush accessory, to keep the ceramic tile floor free from loose debris, dirt, and grit.

Ceramic tile flooring comes in a multitude of design options. Thanks to modern production techniques, today's ceramic tile manufacturers can produce printed tiles. Homeowners can mix and match solid colored tiles with tiles that have accented designs, motifs, or patterns. Should you desire, ceramic tiles can also be printed to mimic hardwood or natural stone. Lastly, ceramic tile can be cut into shapes such as rectangles, triangles, and planks.

The Advantages of Porcelain Tile Flooring

Porcelain tile flooring is liquid resistant, its density of porcelain making it more so than other more porous types of ceramic. It is also naturally stain resistant, another fine advantage. As with ceramic tiles, porcelain tiles can repel liquids, so staining agents cannot readily penetrate the porcelain material.

The natural water and stain resistance of porcelain tile also makes it an easy material to maintain.Should any spills occur, it can be spot cleaned with a damp cloth. Also, regular sweeping will keep dirt and loose debris off the tile flooring, helping to support any glazed surface protection your tile may have.

If correctly and professionally installed, as well as regularly cared for, porcelain tile can last for decades. Consequently, this minimizes house related costs in the long run, as it cuts down any periodic expense of tile removal and replacement.
