Tile flooring has been a hugely popular flooring surface for homeowners in the Buckhead, Atlanta, and Midtown areas for as long as we’ve been in business. Our customers tell us their favorite benefits of tile floors are durability, beauty, and variety. In this short article, our experts at Floor Coverings International Intown Atlanta dig deeper into the top advantages of tile flooring.
Tile Floors are Incredibly Durable
Homeowners in the Buckhead, Atlanta, and Midtown areas love to install tile floors in their kitchens and bathrooms. One main reason? Tile flooring (porcelain tile in particular) has a 0.5 percent water absorption rate, making it an ideal flooring surface for those high humidity rooms. It’s important to note that this durability could be compromised if you try to install tile floors yourself. Improperly grouted tile will introduce moisture below the tiles, which will swell the sub-floor systems and eventually crack the tile.
Tile Floors are Amazingly Beautiful
Tile floors can be a dream for creative homeowners. Ceramic and porcelain tile are often arranged in a variety of patterns and colors (diagonal, pinwheel, herringbone, and border patterns appeal to more adventurous decorators). Subway tile is rapidly growing in popularity. Glass tile can add a glamorous color infusion to bathrooms. If you have a creative itch, our experts at Floor Coverings International Intown Atlanta can help you visualize what a specific type of tile flooring could look like in your home.
Tile Floors Are Available in a Tremendous Variety of Options
Ceramic and porcelain square tiles might first come to mind when you think of tile floors. However, there are plenty of other tile options! Faux wood tiles are a perfect match for homeowners seeking a wood-look without the expense of real hardwood. Stone tiles combine elegance with practicality. Travertine, slate, marble, granite, onyx, and quartzite are some our most installed stone tile surfaces.
