5 Reasons Ceramic Tiles Are Right at Home in Bathrooms
If you’re embarking on a bathroom redesign and wondering where to start when it comes to decorating your walls and floors, say hello to ceramic. This incredibly popular material is used in bathrooms across the globe thanks to a winning combination of practical and aesthetic benefits – and today, we’re taking a look at just some of the many reasons that ceramic tiles are right at home in the bathroom.
They’re water resistant
Water resistance is an essential quality when it comes to bathroom tiles, due to the naturally wet and humid conditions associated with this room of the house. Luckily, glazed ceramic tiles boast a practical protective layer that means they’re impervious to both water and stains. This will prove to be a welcome benefit when your bathroom floor becomes wet, when the room becomes steamy following a bath or shower, and when cleaning your bathroom walls or floors with soap and water.
Unlike some types of tile (and many other flooring options), ceramic tile flooring is extremely durable and highly unlikely to crack as a result of everyday wear and tear. With professionally installed and maintained tiles lasting for 10 or even 20 years, it’s no surprise ceramic is such a popular material when it comes to bathroom floor tiles. Better yet, replacing a single tile is an easy process, should one of your tiles become cracked for any reason.
Ceramic tiles don’t require much in the way of TLC due to their easy-to-clean nature. Simply wipe away or mop up liquids, dirt and other stains in a matter of seconds. Like kitchens, bathrooms are particularly prone to stains and spillages, making low-maintenance floor tiles a top priority for busy homeowners looking to keep their bathroom looking beautiful without the hassle.
Compared to other tile materials, such as porcelain, ceramic presents an affordable option that doesn’t compromise on style or practicality – but where it’s particularly cost-effective is in the long-term value it brings to your bathroom. The durability of ceramic bathroom floor tiles more than justifies the initial cost of the tiles and their installation – and as tile can actually increase a home’s resale value, you can also see an exciting return on your investment in ceramic tile.
