Tile Flooring Guide

In our fifth guide to Quality Flooring we will be profiling ‘Tile Flooring’ including the many benefits of Tile flooring and explaining exactly what Tile flooring is. We will also be looking more generally at TIle flooring and some interesting facts you may be unaware of…

What is Tile Flooring?

Tile flooring is manufactured from a variety of materials such as clay, stone, metal, terrazzo, and quartz. Each type of tile flooring has its own defining characteristics. Generally speaking, the two most commonly used types of tile flooring are ceramic and natural stone.

Benefits of Tile Flooring.

Ease of Maintenance: One of the main benefits with tile flooring is its ease of maintenance. The tiles require no special cleaning solutions, tend to be stain resistant, and make it much easier to keep clean. Spills can also be wiped up easily.

Design: There are a number of tile designs available, and consumers can choose from a wide range of colours, patterns, and designs from Michael John Flooring! Repairs are also easy to accomplish. When a tile is damaged, it can simply be removed and replaced with a new one. Even if the flooring is ceramic, the process is still relatively simple. The quick and easy repair process makes it much easier to keep looking new than many other flooring types.

Versatility is another hallmark of the tile floor. Tiles can be used with equal success to create a durable and attractive kitchen floor or a bathroom floor. It is not unusual for homeowners to also consider installing a tile in the den or family room. When matched with an area rug, the overall look of the floor is inviting as well as easy to keep clean.
