Considering the use of ceramic tile for your home? If so, you will soon realize (if not already) the endless benefits that come from ceramic when discovering the wide variety of shapes, sizes and finishes, to suit any and every application. Ceramic tile offers a unique combination of rich textures, beautiful colors and endless design opportunities, that can help you transform the look and feel of your home like no other material. As you might have guessed, tile floors are most commonly installed in kitchens and bathrooms because it will hold up better against spills, moisture, and wet cleaning than just about anything.

In recent years, tile flooring has shown consistent growth in popularity for home installations. This is especially true for installations done in less common areas of the home - such as living rooms, dining rooms and foyers. Furthermore, ceramic tile has become an excellent choice for those interested in transition flooring within entryways. The logic can be found in the fact that ceramic is tough enough to sustain the rigors of heavy foot traffic without wear, yet stylish enough to make a statement while presenting a touch of class and elegance to visitors. Because tile is easy to clean and impervious to water damage, it’s also a practical choice for areas near entrances where muddy shoes, wet umbrellas and outerwear usually reside.

Now that you've convinced yourself ceramic tile is likely the best flooring solution for your home, it's important for you to understand the various elements involved during the decision process. You'll want to ensure that you seek out a flooring specialist who can assist you in making an educated purchasing decision, ultimately leaving you to feel alive and happily with your new tile flooring for years to come. Whether a first-time buyer or an experienced home decorator, choosing the perfect tiles for your application can seem daunting. This is especially true for ceramic tile, as no other floor covering will offer such a wide variety of colors, styles, and size options. Whether large 18” square tiles, or custom-color backsplash mosaic patterns, you’ll want to ensure you’ve considered all of your options. At Home Carpet One, our specialists educate and inform, making it easy for you to find exactly what you’re looking for - even if you aren’t sure what that is yet!
