If you’re a homeowner wanting to redecorate or spruce up your house, then you have an array of flooring options available to you. You could have wooden boards that scuff easily, carpet that seems to attract stains, or even laminate flooring that isn’t particularly long-lasting.
Then there are tiles. This stylish option can be used for more than just bathroom floor tiles, and it’s becoming increasingly popular to use them throughout a property. Here are some of the biggest reasons.
The greatest thing about tiles (besides how great they look) is how durable they are. They don’t wear easily, aren’t susceptible to scratches like wood is, and are waterproof.
Tiled flooring won’t become an outdated trend, nor will it become a burden to replace every few years.
Tiles are no longer just an option for bathrooms; people are incorporating them throughout their homes because of how amazing they look in any setting. Other obvious rooms to have tiled flooring include the kitchen and dining room because of their resistance to spillages of food and drink. But they’re also becoming more common as a chic finish in living areas and bedrooms.
Because tiles are available in such a wide range of colours, patterns and sizes, there’s also an array of ways you can incorporate them into a home for instant glamour. For instance, you could place a sheepskin rug on top of your flooring to provide a contrast of materials, or you could use different style tiles to create a feature in your flooring.
More Environmentally Friendly
Since tiles are incredibly durable, they don’t need replacing as often as carpet, creating less waste. There’s also a range of creative ways you can reuse and recycle old tiles if you do want to get rid of them.
In order to clean your tiles, you only need good old fashioned soap and water, whereas other kinds of flooring may require steaming and chemicals to remove stains.
Finally, they provide another form of insulation for your house, which could possibly help you save some money on those energy bills.
Our lives are becoming increasingly hectic in the modern age, meaning that the last thing we want to be doing is spending our free time cleaning the place that we’re meant to be able to relax in. Even premium carpets will eventually need a steam clean because dust begins to settle between the fibres.
However, it’s easy to brush dust off tiled flooring since it settles on top, and stopping stains from setting in only requires a mop every now and then – there’s no need to hire any fancy industrial equipment!
