What exactly is a ceramic tile
Ceramic tiles quickly became the most popular type of flooring material used in the home and in commercial premises since they were introduced in ancient roman and Chinese times. Ceramic tiles, whether it is a ceramic floor tile or ceramic wall tile are made of a combination of sand, natural products and clays that are moulded into shape and fired / baked in a kiln. Ceramic tiles can be glazed or unglazed but most home owners prefer and have glazed ceramic tiles in their home.
Ceramic tiles are extremely popular and are available in hundreds of different formats, finishes and designs. If you are considering changing or building a new floor for your home, it is important you understand and know the advantages associated with ceramic tiles.
Benefits of Ceramic Tile
When you are deciding on what type of flooring to use in your home, both inside and out, it is important to think about how durable that floor is. Do you have children, pets or expecting high traffic in your home? Ceramic tiles have a much longer life in comparison to other flooring materials like carpet or timber. Another great benefit of ceramic tiles is that they are resistant to moisture. If you are looking for flooring in wet areas or are prone to spilling drinks then ceramic tiles are the perfect flooring material for your home.
If you have visited a large shopping centre or commercial areas you will uncountabley find ceramic tiles laid on the floor and walls. This is because ceramic tiles have a variety of resistances to heat, cold, frost, moisture, scratches and stains. Ceramic tiles are extremely resistance to tread wear in comparison to all other flooring materials and require little to no maintenance. Ceramic tiles are also available in non slip surfaces and can be made non slip by applying an abrasive glaze to the tile. The opportunities and benefits are endless.
3. Color Permanence
Sometimes different flooring materials are placed outside, around a pool or on a patio/deck. When exposed to sunlight some flooring materials will fade and lose their colour permanence, not ceramic tiles. Ceramic tiles can be exposed to a range of chemicals and constant sunlight but still retain their colour and never fade. Having colour permanence in your flooring gives you the confidence that your home will remain in pristine condition for its lifetime.
Maintaining a healthy and clean home is extremely important and ceramic tiles can help you achieve this. If you have high sanitary standards then you should consider that ceramic tiles in comparison to timber or carpet flooring is extremely hygienic. Ceramic tiles can be cleaned by an array of lean products without being damaged and do not retain or collect grime like other flooring products.
