3 Types of Bathroom Tiles To Consider When Remodeling Your HomePost by TAC Design on 05/12/2017 to
Home improvement is one of the best investments that an individual can make. It has a large return on investment (ROI) and can increase the value of your home by thousands of dollars. Bathrooms, especially, are the most popular home location to improve and remodel. The National Association of Home Builders states that bathroom remodeling accounts for 78% of renovations in the United States.
But what can be done for your bathroom to improve its value? You could replace the toilet, shower, sink, and counters for one. Or, you could replace the walls and the flooring. All are viable options.
Bathroom floor tiles are one of the most common options, as well as bathroom wall tiles for the walls. They’re easy to clean, last a long time, and are resistant to water and mold — perfect for locations that get a lot of water and a lot of humidity. But what are some bathroom floor tile options?
- Ceramic Tiles
Ceramic tile flooring is one of the most popular for bathrooms. They are durable, cheaper than a lot of other options, waterproof, and even stain-resistant. They come in a variety of patterns and designs, meaning they can look good in many different ways. There’s even ceramic that looks like wood, making them an interesting choice.
- Glass Tiles
One of the lesser known options for tile flooring is the glass tile. They would definitely add a unique, eye-catching feature to your bathroom, especially with the ability to have so many designs. And glass tile patterns are nearly endless. One example is small mosaic-style glass tiles which give bathrooms a luxurious feel. A major issue with glass tiles, however, is that they show scratches more easily than other options and are also a little on the expensive side.
- Porcelain Tiles
Porcelain tiles, while more common than other options, should not be forgotten when considering bathroom floor tiles. Waterproof, stain resistant and tougher than ceramic tiles, they’re perfect for the bathroom floor. They are also durable and need little maintenance, with the ability to keep their color longer.
These were just some of the many options to choose from when remodeling your bathroom floor. There are tons more where they came from, and all deserve a critical eye when trying to gauge what to invest in.
