The Advantages of Ceramic Tile Over Carpet and Wood Flooring

Last updated 6 years ago

If you’re trying to decide what type of flooring to choose for your home renovation, then consider ceramic tile. While carpet and wood flooring may be appropriate in some cases, ceramic tile is the best flooring option for many areas throughout your home.

  1. Versatility: Ceramic tiles can be used in a number of different applications. In addition to kitchen and bathroom flooring, they’re also great for foyers, hallways, and dining areas. They’re also easy to install over most subfloors with very little prep work required beforehand.
  2. Ease: Forget vacuuming, polishing, waxing, or anything else you may have to do with your current flooring. Ceramic tile is extremely durable and will maintain its texture for many years of heavy wear. To clean ceramic tile, simply wipe, sweep or mop your flooring. Particularly difficult stains may require manufacturer-approved cleaners, but it’s still easier than trying to remove damaged wood flooring or carpet stains. If a tile breaks or cracks, simply pull that portion of your flooring out and replace it with another ceramic tile.
  3. Price: Finally, ceramic tile is one of the most cost effective flooring options available particularly because of its durability. Carpet will wear out after only a few years of use, and hardwood floors are easily scratched and nicked. But ceramic tile can last for decades and still look great even with only minimal care.
