If you don’t want to deal with the hassle of vacuuming, tile flooring is a great choice. Since living rooms are often one of the most used rooms in the house, they can also be magnets for dirt, dust, and spills. Being able to clean them quickly and easily can be a huge benefit.
This is doubly true when it comes to spilled juices and other potentially-staining liquids. When it comes to carpet, one stain could ruin the entire floor. Tile flooring requires nothing more than a few towels to get it clean. Hardwood can become damaged by water in a way that is not an issue for tile flooring.
When you consider carpet that is five years old, what comes to mind? If you are like most people, you imagine dirty, dingy carpet. You imagine carpet that looks visibly worn out. No matter how often it is cleaned or how well it is treated, eventually the carpet fibers will break down. Tile, on the other hand, is durable and, when properly cared for, can look as great ten years in as it did the day it was installed.
If your home is hot and/or humid, the last thing you want is to walk across thick carpet flooring. Hardwood and laminate can both buckle if it gets too humid. Porcelain and ceramic tiles are great because humid temperatures and moisture do not damage them. Additionally, tile flooring doesn’t conduct heat the way hardwood does, which means that tile can be cool to the touch even when a room is hot.
Of course, the stylishness of tile flooring is another great reason to consider it. The basic ceramics of yesteryear are long gone and today’s options are unique, beautiful, and truly one of a kind. At Mission Tile West we create many of our styles and also sell from top producers. Call us at 626-799-4595 if you have questions or would like to learn more.
