The Benefits of Tile Flooring
Stylish and practical, ceramic floor tiles are suitable for virtually any room in the house but have remained especially popular as flooring for bathrooms and kitchens. They are durable, easy to maintain and can be used on walls as well as floors. Given proper care, they should not fade or suffer damage during the lifetime of your home.

There are a great variety of ceramic tiles on the market today. Available in a large range of sizes, colors and shapes, they can be bought unglazed or glazed. Each type has advantages. Unglazed flooring is more durable and slip-resistant, a point to consider carefully when planning a new bathroom floor. The glazed tiles, on the other hand, provide a greater choice of designs and colors.

Also suitable for flooring are porcelain tiles that are available in unglazed, matte or a highly polished finish. They are much harder than ceramic tiles and can cope with heavy traffic without suffering damage, making them suitable for large commercial and industrial settings as well as for residential use. In order to cope with the large amount of foot traffic to which they are subjected in commercial and industrial areas, porcelain tiles often need to have a special sealant applied to them.
