As you personalize your home to fit your specific needs, you must consider what and why something is going into your house. Tile is an excellent choice for making a room more aesthetically pleasing, and it can add timeless beauty to any room. While you may know you want tile, you should consider what tile choice is best for your exact needs. Most tile will serve the same purpose but with different styles and makes, finding the perfect option for your home can be a bit challenging. As you learned earlier, tiles can be made up of many different materials. Some with more color, some with more durable, and some with more cost-efficient features. We will take you through three more excellent tile choices to help educate you before making your decision. Let’s take a look!
Sandstone has a very earthy feel and look. It is great to use outdoors and can add aesthetics to the outdoor areas of your home. Being a natural material means it comes with “natural” benefits and “natural” cons. It is a durable flooring; however, it absorbs water and can leave the tiles vulnerable to being broken after wet, making it easy to stain.
This unique look is composed of different types of chips of tiles. It can have glass, granite, quartz, and even marble in it. It is an extremely durable floor and is usually used in commercial application because it can take the wear and tear of high traffic areas. However, it is not ideal to use in wet areas because it can become very slippery when wet.
If you are looking for a more slip resistant tile option, quartzite is a perfect choice. This stone can mimic the look of marble with the right finish on it. Using this in wet areas and even outside is a perfect choice to keep a durable floor in areas that can get wet.
Keep educating yourself on the tiles you want. Choosing the design and style you love is also very important. When you find one you like, study the make of the tile and see if it is applicable for what you need. All these choices of tiles are excellent. Finding the best for you can be challenging but worth the time invested.
