Whether you’re renovating your kitchen, living room, or bathroom, you’ll never go wrong with ceramic tiles because it works well in any room. However, it’s mostly used in kitchens and bathrooms because of its inability to penetrate dirt, dust, and pollen.
At Preston Tiling, we offer a large selection of tiling options for your home. But most homeowners prefer ceramic tiles because of the benefits they offers.
Now, let’s go into the reasons why ceramic tiles are the perfect choice for multipurpose spaces:
Easy to Clean and Maintain
When choosing tiles for your home or commercial space, it’s essential to have something easy and quick to clean. This will save you time and do something else that is more productive. When cleaning ceramic tiles, you just need to sweep, wipe, mop, or vacuum any dirt or debris. No harsh chemicals will be needed to clean these kinds of tiles.
Unlike other surfaces, ceramic tiles won’t fade from harsh cleaning solutions. During the manufacturing process of ceramic tiles, their colours are fused, that’s why they can’t be altered by any cleaning products.
Maintains a Hygienic Space
Commonly used areas like kitchens and bathrooms need to be hygienic. With ceramic tiles, a hygienic environment will be easy to attain because its surface does not attract dirt, pollen, dust, or animal hair. Which means bacteria is unlikely to grow. There are also ceramic tiles that are antimicrobial, which means they can destroy and suppress any harmful bacteria, mould, viruses, and fungi.
A glazed ceramic tile provides an extra protective layer to make it impenetrable to stains and water. It can also resist high levels of humidity, which makes it perfect for moist environments such as kitchens and bathrooms.
On the other hand, unglazed ceramic tiles will need to be sealed to protect their surface from liquids. At Preston Tiling, we also recommend sealing the grout to prevent moisture from penetrating and produce mould.
Ceramic flooring is extremely strong and durable. It does not crack easily. If properly installed and maintained, it can last for more than 20 years. In case if a single tile cracks, it’s also easy to replace.
Large Selection of Design Options
Ceramic tiles are popular among homeowners because of the endless design options it offers. Modern techniques can produce printed or embossed designs and patterns in numerous ways. Ceramic tiles can be designed to look like natural stones and hardwood.
Ceramic tiles are available in any colour, texture, size, pattern, and shape. Your chosen design will depend on where you will put the ceramic tiles. If you’re using it for your child’s room, you can choose bright colours and patterns.
The strength, durability, and water-resistance of ceramic tiles make them a perfect choice for any room in your home. Choosing ceramic tiles is a good investment because they can resist wear and tear and endure high foot traffic and heavyweight. You won’t have to worry about repairs and replacements anytime soon!
