Ceramic has been one of the oldest materials used in ancient craftsmanship and construction. It was used in manufacturing goods long before glass, steels, and types of cement. Ceramic tile is a timeless investment that will add value and awe to your home. With a perfect balance of art and architecture, ceramic tile is a beautiful option to enhance your space. Not only is tile known for the elegance it brings to a space but there are more benefits from switching to tile floor than meets the eye.
Here are Five Benefits of Ceramic Tile:
- Life Expectancy
Generally, ceramic tile is an affordable and durable flooring solution. While ceramic tile may not be as dense as porcelain, this durable tile will last for decades in your home. Where some floors have a life expectancy of only 15 years, ceramic tile will last three times as long with a 50-year life expectancy. Tile is worth the investment long term and is less annual maintenance than another flooring.
Ceramic tile is made of clay and other minerals being mixed with water. It is mixed then placed in a high-temperature furnace and heated. Most manufacturers give their ceramic tile a fire-resistant rating over 1000 degrees Celsius which helps make it resistant to heat. Ceramic tile can be a gorgeous addition to your fireplace surround without the fear of heat damage.
Since ceramic is only made of clays, minerals, and water, it is a very natural solution for your home. Some floors have been engineered with chemicals and other compounds, whereas ceramic is a straightforward process. Ceramic still come in a vast selection of colors and patterns, allowing you to customize your space according to your style and design preferences.
- Allergy Control
Unlike carpet, which can hold in nuisance dust and pollen, ceramic tile is easy to clean. Just by sweeping or mopping the area you can quickly remove allergens residing on the surface. Ceramic tile is lower maintenance and easier to clean when compared to some other flooring options.
- Mold Resistant
Not all floors have ceramics tile’s level of resistance to water. Where carpets and woods may be highly susceptible to mildew and mold, ceramic tile is not. Once you waterproof the wet areas under your ceramic, this tile will not hold water or create mildew and mold. This also makes ceramic tile an excellent solution for fountains, pools, bathtubs, and bathrooms.
Ceramic tile has been around for a long time for a reason. Not only is it beautiful but with health benefits, fire-resistant properties, and a very long life-expectancy, ceramic tile is perfect for your next home improvement project.
