Should You Go With Tile?

When looking at remodeling or buying a home we all wonder what should be installed in the floor. Sometimes what comes standard in a home is not what you want. Or with remodeling you are tired with what is down, or it is in need to be replaced. With carpet, laminate, vinyl, wood, parquet floors, porcelain tiles, ceramic tiles, marble, travertine, limestone, slate, and granite. The combinations and choices are endless. And we haven’t even looked at decorative pieces, medallions, or accents, or paint, or even new furniture.

 

For myself living in a desert that has windy days I prefer to go with tile. Tile is much easier to clean when dealing with all the dust being blown around. Another benefit is my pets cannot pee  and leave that awful smell as they do with carpet. The finishes on woods, laminates, and parquet floors always seem to get scratched from my pets nails, and little kids dragging their feet. While I have seen nice vinyls around all of them seem to be priced right around what I can buy ceramic or porcelain tiles for. Installation costs seem to run the same, so since tile can last longer than vinyl with so much wear and tear I end up with tile floors.

With tile I can choose different looks, colors and sizes. I can have a low maintenance floor that is easy to maintain and keep clean. I don’t have to worry about people spilling and staining anything. I can keep my floor and never have to worry about replacing it because of wear and tear. I can have a classy, elegant looking floor that is timeless, and beautiful.
