Replacing Tiles for More Comfort

Replacing Tiles for More Comfort

If your tile floors are old, broken, or simply out of date, changing your tiles can do wonders. They can breathe new life into your home and make it more comfortable.

Old tiles that don’t look good anymore can really bring you down. They also have a huge negative impact on how your home looks. You can change the entire look and feel of your home by simply replacing your tiles.

For kitchens and bathrooms, porcelain tiles are the way to go. They are much denser which makes them much more water resistant and more durable. They also work well in high traffic areas. Porcelain tiles have the colour or pattern all the way through the tile. This means that a small chip won’t be noticeable.

Ceramic tiles are beautiful and less expensive than porcelain. They make great wall tiles. They are also a good choice for lower traffic areas like bedrooms. Ceramic tiles have the colour or pattern printed on and then glazed over to seal it. While they aren’t as durable as porcelain, they can be bought in any colour or pattern imaginable. You can even get the look of wood, stone, or marble with all the benefits ceramic tiles have to offer.

If slipping on the floor is a concern, you can get tiles that are slip resistant. This should add to your comfort in areas that get wet, because you don’t have to worry about slipping on the floor. Choosing smaller tiles also makes the floor more slip resistant because the grout lines create texture.
