The number of benefits in ceramic & porcelain tile flooring will make you a believer in this material. One of the most sought after characteristics of these materials is their resistance to water, which makes them an excellent choice for placement in kitchens, bathrooms, foyers, and anywhere moisture is an issue. They are so water resistant; in fact, they can easily be placed inside the shower or bathtub enclosure, with stunning results.
That same water resistance means you can be protected throughout your house as well, especially if you have pets or children. Homeowners learn quickly, spills and messes can happen anywhere. Even if the rules say “No drinks in the bedroom,” something can always happen. Even storm damage or a window left open during a rainstorm can prove detrimental to your flooring, so it’s always better to be safe than sorry.
Both ceramic & porcelain tile are very hard and dense, making them stand up well under repetitive foot traffic. It also helps alleviate signs of everyday wear such as scratches, scuffs, and fading. Better still, you’ll find these floors do not encourage the growth of mildew, mold, or bacteria, so they’re a healthier alternative in flooring, and especially beneficial to allergy sufferers.
