Ceramic Tile Application

Part I

You Can Have Tile Almost Everywhere In Your Home
So you're thinking about installing a new floor. Choosing the type of flooring is an important decision. Ceramic tile has many advantages over other types.

Tile can be set in a wide variety of designs, allowing you to add your own individual touch to your home. It is more durable, able to stand up to years of use, and easier to clean.

In most cases, a quick run over the tile floor with a broom and a mop is all that is needed to maintain it.

The Cost Of Maintenance In A Tile Floor Is Amazingly Inexpensive
Carpet requires frequent vacuuming and, in some cases, steam cleaning to maintain cleanliness. Even with frequent cleaning, high traffic areas will begin to show wear after a few years.

Wood floors, while beautiful, do require care of the finish to maintain appearance. Also with wood you have to be careful that it is not scratched.

Otherwise, you may find yourself having to sand and refinish your floor. Linoleum has its own set of problems. It tends to discolor with age and may peel up.

Tile Backsplashes Are Wonderful When Installed The Proper Way
When most people think of tile, they think of a tile floor, usually found in either the kitchen or bathroom. However, tile can be used in so many other places.

In the kitchen, you can use ceramic tile to create a backsplash or even on the countertops. Tile can be placed around a fireplace or up the wall above it for an amazing focus point.

Because Of Its Versatility Tile Can Be Use In All Your Rooms
In the bathroom, it can be used on shower walls or to provide a backsplash for the sink or tub. Other places you can find tile are in patios, mudrooms, laundry rooms or foyers. For a unique entrance to your home, tile t
he floor and place a medallion or a ceramic tile star of contrasting color in the center of the room.
