Floor tiles come in a huge range of different designs and colours. Thereby making it easy to add your own personal style to your living space. They are an extremely practical choice of flooring. Here are just a few advantages of why you should use floor tiles over other types of flooring in your new home or renovation project:
Ceramic and porcelain tiles are resistant to extreme weather conditions and are completely fireproof at any temperature. This means that they do not emit toxic gases, smoke or fumes and may help to reduce the spread of fire.
- Hypo Allergenic
Tiles do not harbor dust mites or moisture making them allergy free. Another benefit of installing floor tiles is that they do not release Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCS). This makes them a great choice for flooring for families or people suffering from allergies.
- Scratch Resistant
Tiles are suitable for high traffic areas for both indoors and out as they are strong and scratch resistant. Floor tiles are far more durable and have a much longer lifespan than other building materials. Therefore, there are no on-going maintenance costs such as sanding, polishing or professional cleaning.
- Eco Friendly
Unlike hybrid and vinyl flooring which are made from plastic, ceramic and porcelain floor tiles are made from natural clay and other raw materials. This means that they can be recycled and are much less damaging to the environment than plastics or carpet.
- Easy to Clean
Tiles are easy to clean. They do not require the use of strong chemicals or expensive equipment when cleaning. As floor tiles are stain resistant, a simple sweep and mop with water and a mild detergent is all that is needed.
