Why Ceramic Tile (Part 2)

In the first part of the series, we discussed the advantages of incorporating ceramic tiling in your home’s design scheme. Yes, ceramic tile is beautiful, durable, and retains its value, but what else? In addition to these wonderful attributes, tile is quite low maintenance and is available in a wide array of colors and patterns.  But if this still hasn’t convinced you to choose tile, there are still more benefits of this wonderful material!


Whether used indoors or out, ceramic tile can create a great first impression. With the variety of colors, textures, finishes and patterns available, there is something for every décor style. Fine ceramic tile can create a sophisticated and luxurious look that will enhance a room’s appearance. Advancements in technology have allowed tile manufacturers to explore prints that mimic other materials, such as wood, metal, and even brick.


Before selecting a ceramic tile design, it’s important to first envision your ideal space. Will the tile blend with your décor? Are you interested in a traditional look or are you searching for a unique style that will make a room pop? The answer to this question will help you to narrow down your choices quickly.


Homeowners can further customize a tile installation by adding a natural stone, glass or metal to the ceramic tiles. Customization possibilities are endless because you mix and match many types of design elements that will create a powerful look. Tile can be used on the floors as well as the walls. Ceramic tiles are a great option for households that have children and see a high volume of traffic and muddy boots.



Ceramic tile retains its new look much longer than other floor types.  It isn’t affected by UV rays and won’t fade or grow dull over time. In addition, when the tile is properly cleaned and maintained, pests are not a problem making tile perfect for individuals with bad allergies or asthma.
