Have you ever gotten ready to host a party or get-together with your loved ones and spent hours trying to scrub, wash, and dry your carpet to perfection? With most tile floors, even spilled red wine is easy to wipe up with a paper towel or sponge.
Whether you’re coming in from a day at the beach or hurrying inside during a storm, you don’t need to worry about getting your floor wet when it’s made of tile. Your tile floor won’t warp or stain if a little water sits on it. Just remember to put down a beach towel to prevent other people from slipping, and your floor will be fine.
Tile’s durability makes it a great choice for homes with children, pets, and lots of guests. If you’re having company or renting out your beach house this summer, you won’t have to worry about scratches or stains on your tiled floors. Best of all, tile can last for years, giving you peace of mind as life unfolds in your home. Gentle mopping from time to time and spot cleans as needed will be enough to keep your tile floor looking new for years.
It’s easy to overlook this benefit of tile flooring, but tile floors don’t collect dust, pollen, pet dander, or other annoying allergens. Cleaning airborne allergens out of carpet can sometimes require professional assistance. If a pet sheds on the tile, it’s easy to wipe away the fur and dander from the surface of the tile.
Tile comes in a variety of colors and textures. Smooth, shiny glass creates an elegant look, whereas stone or ceramic can give your home a rustic charm. You can go bold with black or white, or create a calming effect with warm neutrals like sand-colored tile. You could even opt for luxury vinyl that looks exactly like wood.
Better for air quality
Because tile is fired in kilns, there are zero volatile organic compounds that can be released into the air and reduce your indoor air quality. Better indoor air quality means less discomfort and fewer health problems for your family.
